Nowcomm Wins SMB Digital Transformation Award At The Comms Business Awards 2017

Nowcomm Wins the SMB Digital Transformation Award at the 2017 Comms Business Awards.

The Comms Business Awards are the ICT Channel’s most prestigious and sought after accolade and we are delighted to announce that Nowcomm has been awarded the 2017 award for SMB Digital Transformation.

Our award is recognition for the innovative Single Point of Access (SPA) solution that was developed for Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, South Tees Hospitals NHS and Middlesbrough Council and which achieved ground breaking innovation in the provision and availability of care services from the local providers across the South Tees area to the wider community. This Single Point of Access (SPA) solution is now helping deliver more effective and better provisioned care to patients and citizens in the community and is reducing the impact of bed-blocking that was affecting many of the regions hospitals.

Nowcomm Co-Founder and Director of Technology James Baly who collected the award at a ceremony at The Royal Lancaster London Hotel said, ‘I’m delighted to accept this award on behalf of the Nowcomm team as we passionately believe that technology innovations can and do make a positive impact in transforming the lives of all people in the community and to the hardworking and dedicated staff that work across a variety of public service roles that we as citizens all depend on.”  James was actively involved in the initial service concepts and the high level design of the Single Point of Access (SPA) and performed the role of executive sponsor for Nowcomm throughout the project, so this award had personal satisfaction too. James concluded  “It is very pleasing to see something transform from vision and concept into delivery and ultimately the successful outcomes desired. Being recognised with this award is further icing on the cake!”

Nowcomm’s Managing Director, Richard McLoughlin commented “This Single Point of Access service is a strategic innovation that involved bringing together 5 public sector partner organisations into one building and operating on one network while still being able to securely navigate their own systems and data. All stakeholder organisations and the public across the Tees area are now benefiting from Nowcomm’s delivery of digital convergence and digital transformation.  It really is a fantastic example of Nowcomm successfully managing and delivering change across people, process and technology to achieve and indeed surpass the initial desired business case.”

Fellow co-founder and Director of Operations Mark Lamont added, “The Comms Business Award is great news for our project engineers who performed a superb job in understanding the key concepts, requirements and challenges of the project and then implementing such as successful solution in partnership with the departmental stakeholders at Redcar and Cleveland Council who we worked very closely with in their role as the lead interface of the many public sector bodies involved. This is a proud moment for our entire company, and we’re so happy that the award panel recognised this outstanding accomplishment.’
