Overall winners at the 2007 ICT Excellence Awards, the company, which currently employs 35 people at its head office in Halesowen, won this year’s award for its vehicle scheduling software, logixcentral, the only web-based, ‘on-demand’, pay-as-you-use vehicle routing and scheduling system available worldwide.

The Software as a Service title was presented to DPS International Limited by sponsor Digital KTN at a prestigious evening awards ceremony following the annual ICT Conference, organised by the ICT Cluster, on 25th November at the National Motorcycle Museum in Bickenhill, Solihull.

The Judges on the panel for this award have said:-

"This category contained entries of extremely high standard and the selection was very difficult. The company diversified from being a logistics company into the development of an IT based logistics management system which was one of the original SaaS products, and for which they won an ICT Excellence Award for Innovation in 2007. Rather than rest on their laurels they have continued development and marketing of their product. The panel were impressed by the company’s commitment to the development and retraining of its staff. The company maintains a focus on the development of the software which includes development of real time routing and scheduling. The winner in this category is DPS International."

Paul Palmer, CEO and founder of DPS, said:- "Winning this award is a tribute to the hard work and commitment of our staff, and recognition for the excellent work we do. We entered the ICT Excellence Awards because we are proud to be associated with the ICT Cluster within the West Midlands and are proud of being a West Midlands based company. To have won this award shows that the ICT panel have recognised that our product/service stands out from the crowd for being unique and among one of the best models of software deployed over the internet."
