The BIBA Judges Were Here…..

Exciting times in the Gconnect office today with the visit from The BIBA judges! This was the final judging in the Micro Business of the Year award before the ceremony in September.  It was great to be able to meet some of the judges in person, and show them a little more about how we work.  Being a tech company, it’s sometimes hard to explain to people exactly what we do, so it was fantastic to be able to show the lovely ladies around and demonstrate some of our work.

 

That’s it now until the ceremony in September, which we are all attending (look out for the excitable geek crew, that’ll be us!) This will be our first awards experience as a company, we’ve been over the moon to make it so far, and the chance to celebrate this with all the other entrants is the icing on the cake!

 

To all the finalists, good luck and we’ll see you in Blackpool!

Gconnect Shortlisted for 2 More Awards!

Coming hot on the heels of being shortlisted for two BIBAs, Gconnect have now been shortlisted for two ISPA Awards, Best Dedicated Hosting and Best Shared Hosting!

The ISPA (Internet Service Providers’ Association) Awards are the UK’s longest running internet industry awards, this being their 16th year.  The ISPAs are a recognised kite mark in the industry, and considered a badge of quality to customers.

To reach the shortlist, we had to undergo two months of technical testing by ISPA Awards technical partner thinkbroadband, and can proudly say on completion of testing we are shortlisted for both awards.  Final judgement will take into account various factors including our value for money, flexibility, security measures, availability and more. The winners will be announced at the ceremony in July.
