19-03-2010

Ubisense has enjoyed double success – winning the 'Business Weekly' Award for International Trade and joining a number of prestigious well-known former winners by securing the Cambridge Computer Lab Ring 2010 Hall of Fame Company of the Year Award.

Ubisense attended the Business Weekly Award ceremony at Queens' College, Cambridge, which was hosted by Simon Fraser, the Permanent Secretary for Business, Innovation and Skills, Hermann Hauser and Andy Hopper.

The evening marked the 50th Anniversary of the Cambridge Technology Cluster and the importance of boosting international trade. The event saw business leaders from leading local companies compete for five prestigious awards.

Cambridge based Ubisense enjoyed a very successful year in 2009, increasing their turnover by more than 50%, and moving into new territories and market sectors. Ubisense is a truly international organisation, with global offices and partners, a worldwide management team, and 95% of their turnover coming from overseas customers.

On winning the award, Founder and Director of Hardware, Dr Paul Webster said “What a complete surprise and honour, particularly given the calibre of the other companies in this category. We are proud to accept this on behalf of everybody at Ubisense who have worked so hard to grow the business to get to where we are today. We couldn't have made it without the support of our members of staff, investors and board of directors, so I would like to thank the judges on behalf of the whole team at Ubisense for recognising our achievements with this award.”

Ubisense was also delighted to secure the Cambridge Computer Lab Ring 2010 Hall of Fame, Company of the Year Award. The Hall of Fame Awards were established by the Ring, which is the Cambridge University Computer Laboratory Graduate Association, to celebrate the success of companies founded by Computer Laboratory graduates. In winning Company of the Year, Ubisense joins several hundred companies that have now been catalogued in the Ring Hall of Fame.

Accepting the Award for Ubisense, Board Director Dr Robert Sansom said, “I am delighted to accept this award on behalf of Ubisense. It is a testimony to the company’s achievement over recent years and lists them amongst a number of very successful Cambridge spin-out organisations”
