Shipster Wins System Integrators Award

On Thursday, the whole team hopped on MS Teams for our virtual watch-party of the Digital City Awards virtual ceremony. After all the work we’d put in over the last bizarre year, it was nice to share some bubbly and reminisce over the challenges of the pandemic as we awaited the result. We faced some strong competition in the System Integrators category and we congratulate all the winners of the night. That said, we’re immensely happy to announce that Shipster is the winner of the Digital City System Integrators Award!

When Shipster was announced as the winner, award presenter Gavin Ramjaun elaborated:

“Shipster managed to deliver impressive focus and growth during covid and the judges thought it was great to see the company supporting the national pandemic response, providing free shipping licenses for PPE and medical suppliers, and amongst the existing obstacles and challenges of the pandemic itself and still deliver, it was remarkable.”

This past year has been a rollercoaster for everyone, not least of all for our clients. Since the first lockdown in March 2020, we’ve all been working from home, trying to work around the pandemic, provide a helpful support package during the crisis and of course prepare for Brexit. Our Brexit Shipster build was ready installed on client workstations ahead of the Brexit deadline and all the while we’ve never had to compromise our efforts on customer support, new features or new integrations. We found this balance by hiring more staff – who are yet to meet the whole team in person!

Thank you to all our clients who have entrusted us with their businesses and partners who work tirelessly to deliver the amazing solution that we have. We so enjoy working with you and cannot wait to see what potential we can unlock moving forward together.

And it would be remiss of us not to thank advisor Nikki Scrivener whose wisdom and advice has been worth its weight in gold, so thank you Nikki.

Shipster has come a long way since our beginnings in 2016, now supporting nearly 100 client warehouses. It’s been an amazing journey so far and we can’t wait to see what lies ahead.

Here’s a couple of words from the team:
