London, Friday 31st October: Minesoft has been announced as winner of the ‘Best Exporter’ category at the annual business awards, organised by the Richmond Chamber of Commerce – one of the accredited nationwide British Chambers of Commerce. The awards are a recognition and celebration of regional business success, and the judging panel awarded Minesoft ‘Best Exporter’ for its achievements in rapidly growing global export markets in the Intellectual Property information field.
Director Ann Chapman was presented with the award by the Secretary of State for Business Vince Cable, the Rt Hon MP Zac Goldsmith, Cllr Steven Speak, and the award-winning television presenter and journalist Lynne Fauld-Woods, at a Gala Dinner held on the 17th October at the world-famous Twickenham Rugby Stadium. On accepting the award, Chapman explained that “almost 90% of our annual revenue is generated outside the United Kingdom, with a client base ranging from very large corporation to specialised intellectual property law firms and patent attorneys.”
Working in the niche field of patent information, Chapman added that “although Minesoft is a well-known name and leader within the industry, broader recognition is always welcome. Minesoft won the Queen’s Award for International Trade in 2009 and this latest business award is great recognition once again of our international reach – reflected in an ever-growing global client base, a worldwide team of dedicated multi-cultural and multi-lingual staff and the continual expansion and enhancement of our patent information products to provider greater coverage of and accessibility to patent data for users across the globe.”
