Scancapture win Business of the Year 2013!

Business of the Year 2013 award

Scancapture scooped the top prize at the Lancashire Business Awards on Thursday 7th November 2013. Organised by the North-West’s premier Business Club ‘Downtown in Business’ and held at the stylish Stanley House Hotel, the awards recognise the county’s leading businesses and entrepreneurs in a variety of sectors.

Over 200 guests packed out the hugely popular sell-out event with business guru Michael Finnigan and Preston College Principal Lis Smith also amongst the winners. Scancapture had to beat off stiff competition from Preston’s Mosaic Care Group, organic farm shop Roaming Roosters and leading storage company Storefirst.

There were several highly sought after categories including Networker of the Year, Employer of the Year and Best Digital Agency. Now in its 6th year, the Downtown in Business Awards were sponsored by Bowker Motor Group and Lancashire Life magazine.

The awards come at the end of what has been a busy year for the survey specialists. Scancapture have conducted over 50,000 staff and customer surveys for several Lancashire based businesses across sectors ranging from accountancy to construction and retail.

Steve Smith Winner

Scancapture is also becoming increasingly active in the region’s business community since moving its offices to the Media Village in Altham. Scancapture MD Steve Smith was delighted with the win: “It was fantastic to be nominated but to actually win Business of the Year against such strong competition is magnificent. We love working with other businesses in Lancashire so to be recognised by our peers is really special.”

An online poll contributed to 50% of the award decision with the other half judged by a panel of distinguished business experts. Smith added: “I would like to thank all of our colleagues, customers, suppliers and the wider Lancashire business community for their votes – we wouldn’t be here without you!”

Established in Lancashire for over 11 years, the accolade is a testament to Scancapture’s status as a leading survey design and data collection service in the UK. Working with nationally recognised brands such as Haven Holidays and Bensons for Beds, the company has helped bridge the gap between businesses and their staff and customers.
