Today, ShopWorks has been shortlisted as a finalist for digital innovations in the public sector at the 2017 Digital Entrepreneur Awards (DEAs).

Working closely with leisure and care home operators, Shopworks are making great strides in improving the efficiency of staff scheduling for many businesses.

The DEAs are the only national awards dedicated to championing digital entrepreneurialism and innovation across the UK and are this year split into North/South regions for the first time.

Lee Bowden, Head of Strategy at ShopWorks said: “It was a huge honour to be nominated and an incredible achievement to reach the final. Whether partnering with Leisure Centres, Care Homes or Medical facilities, we are extremely proud to be contributing our digital knowhow and expertise to helping those businesses that provide such crucial service and support to the wider community. 

The final 8 nominees beat off competition from hundreds of businesses that entered, across 16 award categories.

The awards, now in their 13th year, cover categories encompassing every component of today’s online business ecosystem – from enigmatic leadership to forward-thinking development and cutting-edge creative. Categories include Digital Business of the Year, Most Innovative use of software and the coveted Digital Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Lawrence Jones, CEO of headline sponsor UKFast, said: “It’s extraordinary to see the development of digital across every sector. From creative agencies to law firms and the public sector, everyone needs to evolve their offering to stay ahead of the competition. That’s reflected in the sheer number and diversity of entries we’ve received this year.

“The DEAs are an incredible opportunity to celebrate the best in digital talent from up and down the UK. It’s an amazing honour to return as the lead sponsor this year as the awards evolve to encourage involvement from every region in the country.
