Richard Sheppard from multilingual software consultancy firm Interceptor Solutions, winners of the Innovative Software Package or Application Award in 2015 spoke of what winning the ESTnet Awards meant to his company,

“We decided to enter Linguaskin in the ESTnet Awards to give ourselves the opportunity to pitch our product to a panel of experts. It was a pragmatic business decision. We found that there was a lot of value in going through the entry process, which was simple, but thought provoking, it really helped us with the development of our product.

Of course it was fantastic to win the Award. We had a lot of publicity as part of the shortlist and as winners, which really raised the profile of Linguaskin and Interceptor Solutions.”
