Green.Click is proud to announce that we have been awarded the title of National Champion in the prestigious, international competition European Business Awards. This means that we among tens of thousands of other European companies have been selected as one of only 11 Danish companies who in 2017 can win the final European Business Award. We hereby join an exclusive list of prominent Danish companies that previously have been nominated for this award, including Mærsk, The VELUX Group, Yousee, DONG Energy, and Royal Copenhagen.
Green.Click wins for trailblazing technological innovation
Green.Click won the title as National Champion in the category UKTI Award for Innovation. This came about primarily because of our self-invented and trailblazing customer relationship management (CRM) system that enables us to quickly and efficiently create and maintain marketing campaigns and process and answer digital customer referrals. In addition to possessing this unique technology, Green.Click is also a Google Premier Partner, which certifies that we have a well-functioning technological infrastructure, on the basis of which we can service our customers with efficient and value creating online marketing.
We are proud representatives of North Jutlandic innovation
In total, 11 Danish companies were this year chosen to be National Champion. In this field, seven of the carefully selected companies are based in Copenhagen, and just three are from Jutland. Green.Click is the only company from North Jutland with this distinction, and we thus proudly stand as representatives of the North Jutland business community and as proof that North Jutlandic innovation can stand shoulder to shoulder with that of the European elite. Partner and managing director, Jan Nygaard Hesselby, says on our behalf about the honor: “It was with a great sense of humility we decided to enter the competition, and it is with an equally large sense of pride we receive the news of our title. It shows that we in the innovation area can compare ourselves to the best, and I think it says a lot about how a North Jutlandic company with dedication and skilled employees can achieve success enough to be recognized by a large, international organization such as UKTI.”
About European Business Awards
European Business Awards is broadly recognized as Europe’s biggest and most important cross-sector business competition. It is organized annually by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) that has as its mission the creation of a stronger and more successful European business community. This is done primarily by rewarding and recognizing European companies that excel within the fields of growth, innovation, and social responsibility. The competition can be entered by all companies, regardless of size and industry, and is based on UKTI’s core values, innovation, ethics, and success. The competing companies are judged by an experienced and independent panel that consists of businessmen, politicians, academics and entrepreneurs from all across Europe. The award is sponsored by RSM International, a multinational network of accountant companies that comprise the sixth-largest accountant network in the world.
UKTI has an annual budget of three billion kroner and has since its inception in 1999 worked to improve the competitivesness of British companies through international trade and investing as well as to attract a continuous stream of healthy foreign direct investments (FDI). In the wake of Brexit, UKTI was in July, 2016, on behest of Theresa May, the new British Prime Minister, integrated into the new Department for International Trade, whose purpose is to facilitate trade deals between British and non-EU companies.
