Test Valley Business Awards 2016: Innovation & Technology Award Winners!


We were recently nominated for the Innovation and Technology Award at this year’s Test Valley Business Awards, and check this… WE WON!

The unique award, sponsored by the University of Southampton Science Park, celebrates a vital sector of our economy which is being nurtured in southern Test Valley – highly innovative, technology businesses.

Some of the Fresh Relevance Team with the award

CEO of Fresh Relevance, Mike Austin was presented with the award by Chief Executive of Southampton Science Park, Peter Birkett, during a gala ceremony hosted at the Lights in Andover on Thursday 22nd September. The evening represented a great opportunity to hear about and celebrate the success of just some of our fascinating enterprises.

The judging criteria for the award meant we had to demonstrate two or more of the following:

  • A product or process that has made a significant difference to sales revenue
  • A commitment to the use of technology that has led to business success
  • Evidence of an innovative approach to marketing, management or product development

Mike Austin, CEO, comments: “To win an award that recognises innovation and technology is particularly special, as it is at the heart of what we do. We develop every solution so that it can be used without the need to understand how the technology works.” Austin adds: “The world of online retail is fast-paced, so giving retailers the power to respond in real-time to market conditions, with new offers, campaigns and customer content, can make a huge difference to the bottom line.”
