Online PR News – 05-March-2010 – – Isotrak has won the European IT Excellence Award for ‘Best Managed Service Provider’ with its ITMS (Integrated Transport Management System) solution for Sainsbury’s, on Thursday 25 February 2010. The award ceremony took place at the Tower Hotel in London and attracted entries from more than 26 European Countries.

The IT Europa Awards are the first pan-European awards which recognise the crucial role that Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Solution Providers play in the delivery of real world IT solutions. Each entry had to be endorsed by the client and the winners were selected by an independent panel of consultants and editors.

Sainsbury’s ITMS solution, created through the collaboration of Isotrak and Paragon, is the first technology development of its kind for a UK retailer. As a result, Sainsbury’s distribution network has achieved a 15% reduction in store turnaround times overall and 12% in empty running improvement. As Sainsbury’s vehicles are now travelling less miles they are saving 538,456 litres’ of fuel across the four fully-optimised sites, yielding 1.416 million kg CO2 emissions reduction and 3.79 grams CO2 saving per case.

Craig Sears Black, Sales and Marketing Director, says: “We are delighted to have our efforts recognised by Europa IT Awards. Our collaboration with Paragon has delivered a word-class managed service solution for Sainsbury’s.”

The Managed Service award looks at IT solutions and support which are delivered as an on-line service instead of an in-house solution. This award category is for solutions delivered as a service and may vary from managed support service to fully outsourced applications and data centres.

Recognising Excellence

These awards are the only pan European awards that recognise real world solutions as well as channel partnerships. The awards are split into three sections. The first set of awards, are exclusively for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) highlighting the applications that they develop for their customers. The second set of awards is for Solution VARs and Systems Integrators who provide excellent solutions for their clients from SMEs to major enterprises. The third set of awards, are for suppliers who best support their partners to deliver excellence.
