The Queen's Awards for Enterprise are the UK's most prestigious business awards. The International Trade category recognises outstanding growth in overseas earnings and year-on-year growth in overseas sales over a six-year period. Each year thousands of UK businesses enter this prestigious award programme.
HPD Software was selected on the basis of its international presence in over 50 markets globally and for its recent market expansion, notably in Lebanon, Democratic Republic of Congo, United Arab Emirates and Jordan. The increased growth, largely helped by a subscription based pricing model which makes HPD LendScape finance software affordable to smaller enterprise businesses. Another key contributor to the international expansion is the ability to localise the HPD LendScape platform features; language, currencies, taxation rules and working/non-working days can easily be adapted. HPD also stimulate business innovation by funding internal education programmes for banks who wish to develop new client offerings. In 2017, 22 students were educated in factoring, courtesy of a bursary HPD funded via Factor's Chain International.
Kevin Day, CEO at HPD Software, said: "We were very pleased to win The Queen's Award for International Trade in 1999, and I feel honoured and privileged to work with an exceptional team of people who have achieved this again - almost 20 years later."
"HPD's mission is to provide comprehensive and flexible software solutions for the global working capital finance industry. We are proud of our international reputation and this accolade will help to support our growth."
