ProspectSoft have won the Best SME Undergraduate employer award for a fifth time...
ProspectSoft, a market-leading CRM and eCommerce software-as-a-service company, is pleased to announce that it has won the Best SME Undergraduate Employer Award in the National Undergraduate Employability Awards 2017.
Sponsored by PwC, these awards, now in their tenth year, celebrate the outstanding achievements of all stakeholders involved in undergraduate work experience. They benchmark those employers, universities and students across the UK who have demonstrated commitment and dedication to the field of undergraduate employability.
ProspectSoft, based near High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, employs approx. 50 staff and specialises in developing and delivering customer relationship management and eCommerce software to help SME businesses improve the efficiency of their CRM systems. ProspectSoft has grown by building an outstanding graduate placement programme which brings highly qualified and very able potential employees into the business, and from which the company then meets its recruitment needs.
The awards ceremony took place on 24th February 2017, where Olympic winner Rebecca Adlington, OBE, presented ProspectSoft with the award. This year, placement students and returning placement students impressed the judges with their video application for the award, which involved the students and employees creating and editing the video themselves, which included them recording their own voices over the video. Competition for the award was particularly tough this year, as ProspectSoft were among 9 other SMEs in this category instead of 5.
Commenting on the win, Stuart McLaren, Sales and Marketing Director of ProspectSoft, said: “We are ecstatic to have won this prestigious award for the fifth time. It is an important demonstration of our commitment to providing a meaningful placement programme for bright undergraduates and the role they play in helping ProspectSoft continue to outperform."
