Firm says make most of technology awards

BLUESPIER International is urging Worcestershire and Herefordshire technology companies to follow in its footsteps and enter the second West Midlands Information and Communications Technology Cluster Awards.

The awards honour the best technology companies region wide, and with at least 489 of them based in the two counties, the area has a good chance of success.

Bluespier, based in Grafton Flyford, won the Best International Trader Award in 2005 for its innovative product, which is sold in several countries including Australia, Ireland, South Africa and the UK.

Instead of doctors and nurses writing notes, which can easily be lost or inaccessible to more than one person at a time, Bluespier has invented a system that captures clinical data within hospitals through bedside computers and computers in each outpatient room and in operating theatres. This ensures that all records are accurate and the patient receives the best possible care.

Susan Williams, managing director of Bluespier, says Herefordshire and Worcestershire firms are a leading force in the West Midland's technology industry.

She said: "Since winning, we have had our most successful year to date. We found that it helped us gain credibility with our existing customers and partners.

"Our team is elated to be recognised and rewarded among the best technology companies. It has opened doors for us. We highlighted it on our winning tender to work with Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, the largest trust in the UK and the biggest teaching hospital in Europe."

The free to enter awards recognise top technology companies for outstanding achievements to the industry, and the overall regional champion will be awarded £2,000.

The winners will be announced during the West Midlands ICT Cluster annual conference on November 21, 2006,at the National Motor Cycle Museum, in Solihull.

Entries are invited in six categories: Most innovative product, best value public sector project, best public sector procurer, most value added private sector project, best use of skills training and best international trader.

Nominations must be submitted by September 29. Log onto for more information.
