York-based Incremental Solutions, a leading technology provider of smart transport systems, has been honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
Announced today, (Tuesday 23rd April), Incremental Solutions has been acknowledged for its excellence in the field of Innovation, and are one of just 200 organisations nationally to be recognised with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
Now in its 53rd year, the Queen’s Award for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the country, and are for outstanding achievement by UK businesses in the categories of innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity through social mobility. Winning businesses are able to use the esteemed Queen’s Award emblem for a period of five years.
Incremental was set up in 2014 and combines a team bringing significant experiences from commercial software, engineering, business management and transport network industries. Working with companies such as Network Rail, LNER, Northern, Transpennine Express, EMT (East Midlands Trains) and Grand Central, Incremental provides Global Positioning System (GPS) data visualisation and analysis software which generates detailed performance insight for transport operators – enabling them to improve and optimise their efficiency. This is particularly beneficial in the areas of timetable verification and incident management for example.
Of the award, Daniel Lee-Bursnall, Founder and Commercial Director, said;
“To say we’re incredibly proud is something of an understatement. This level of recognition is outstanding and full credit must go to the wider Incremental team and our partners for the hard work they do. There’s a real opportunity to improve rail and transport network’s performance with the clever use of technology, and we’re pleased to be based here in York and helping to lead that change.”
Andrew Sharp, Head of Business at Make It York said
“York is fast getting a reputation as a city that really fosters innovation and growth and Incremental is a fantastic example of a company that is transforming their sector through the development of new and innovative products. Make It York has worked closely with the team at Incremental over the last few years to support their growth and we are delighted to see their hard work and inspiring innovation getting the recognition and reward it deserves. Their clever application of technology is changing the way data is used to improve performance in the rail and automotive sectors and we look forward to even greater things as they continue to develop”
Incremental will celebrate its award during a royal reception for Queen’s Award winners in June this year.
