DPS International are proud to announce that we have won two prestigious ICT Excellence awards. The ICT Excellence Awards 2007, organised by West Midlands ICT Cluster and sponsored by Accredit UK, were held on 22nd November.

logixcentral, the logistics web-based vehicle routing and scheduling system from DPS International, was the winner not only in the Product Innovation category but also overall winner of the event.

The ICT Excellence Regional Champion Award was won outright by DPS with logixcentral. The award was presented to the organisation selected from all the individual award winners who demonstrated outstanding achievement and who is an exemplar of good practice to the region’s ICT business community. In addition to a trophy, the prize for the overall winner included a cheque for £2000.

In the ICT Excellence in Innovation (Product) Award, DPS was a joint winner with the Lanner Group. This award was sponsored by the University of Warwick Science Park. It was awarded for the most innovative product introduced by an ICT business.

The judges citation for DPS was "DPS International is a supplier of vehicle routing and scheduling software, the LogiX suite is based on a wealth of experience in logistics consulting. Now in its 25th year, the West Midlands based company has recently launched a web version of LogiX, called logixcentral. In addition to the usual benefits of LogiX, such as reduction in mileage, fuel, vehicles and hence carbon footprint, logixcentral offers the convenience of web access and its pay-as-you-use pricing system makes it viable for smaller companies."

Paul Palmer, CEO and founder of DPS, said: "These awards are particularly welcome in our silver-jubilee year. They show that DPS is still at the forefront of freight transport planning after a quarter of a century. They also acknowledge that the Internet is the way forward for such applications and this also opens the market for new sectors, particularly in the service sector, and for smaller companies who cannot afford traditional desktop solutions."

Earlier this year logixcentral was named Web Based Vehicle Scheduling Solution of 2007 by the Institute of Transport Management.
