Access, the mid-market consulting, software and solutions provider is celebrating today after winning ‘Software Package of the Year’ at the Accountancy Age Awards for the third year running. Access fought off stiff competition from IRIS, Mamut and Thomson Reuters to retain the crown at the glitzy awards ceremony, held at Battersea Park in London this week.
The judging panel, made up of some of the industry’s top figures, said “Access is definitely made of winning material and the figures back it up.” Another commented, “Access Dimensions represents excellent value for money, delivers a good range of functionality and is user-friendly.” On collecting the award Chris Bayne, managing director at Access said “I’m absolutely delighted that Dimensions has won this award three times in a row now. It’s a very competitive category and it just shows what a great product we offer the mid-market. We were surprised to win it twice in a row, three times is just phenomenal.”
The Software Package of the Year Award wasn’t Access’ only success on the night, with Access Finance Director, Ian Little picking up ‘FD of the Year – Growing Business’. The judges remarked “It’s clear that the last 12 months have been critical for the company and Ian has played a very influential role in its success and growth.” As he collected his trophy Ian said “To be recognised by the industry’s leading figures is a great honour. We’ve been working very hard at Access over the past 12 months to continue our growth and to develop the business further, to get an award for these achievements is really special”
It’s been a spectacular year for Access, who also won three awards at the Software Satisfaction Awards in October. “The fact we continue to win highlights the hard work of everyone at Access. This year we’ve picked up awards and nominations across our whole product portfolio, with individual awards going to some of the great staff we have here. This proves we have the best products and the best people” concluded Chris.
