  1. Lincolnshire based transportation planning company awarded £118k

The company was established to solve the transportation issues presented by the London 2012 Olympic Games. Before embarking on any technological development of an unprecedented scale, a great deal of time and energy was spent in thorough research into all the different planning and mapping methodologies currently available on the market. These software solutions and their complexities were often used by many of the vast numbers of enterprises involved in these extraordinarily complex schemes and the development of a sound knowledge base was to be vital in the development and creation of their own platform. The company is transforming the way organisers and stakeholders of large, multi-disciplinary teams communicate and work. Created for the global events industry, its software facilitates collaborative working, improves efficiency, and reduces errors, inconsistencies, and duplication of work, saving time and money.

  1. Yorkshire based essential oil supplier receives £6k

Established in 1993, the company develops, bottles, and supplies 100% pure essential oils, carrier base oil, candle making and soap making oils, and reed diffuser fragrances. These are all therapeutic-grade oils and are 100% pure. Their fragrance oils are made here in the UK. All orders are bottled on the day of order, on their premises to ensure purity, and their goods are turned around regularly to ensure that customers receive quality, fresh stock. Legislative changes which have been put in place over the last few years mean that the company now must fulfil a very stringent set of processes before taking their products to market, to ensure their products are being sold legally. Product development and distribution is therefore required to accommodate for these health and safety criteria and ensure they are met.
