Updatum Eyes Technology Prize
Gary Horkan, Business Developer at Mansfield-based Updatum, on why his company is entering this year’s Nottinghamshire’s BEST Business Awards:
“Updatum provides companies with online news services specialising in Online and Social Media Monitoring. With advances in technology surrounding the internet over the past ten years such as smart phones, broadband availability, and greater access to computers, over 60% of adults in the UK now access the internet on a daily basis.
“As more local operations are becoming related and dependent upon changes in markets internationally – Updatum has focused even on international monitoring for local businesses.
“Operating from Nottinghamshire, Updatum has the ability to listen in to any market in 180 countries, reporting to our local customers about opportunities and threats in their export markets – or from the market of their vendors or competitors.
“As online news and social networking has become as much a part of daily routine as brushing your teeth, Updatum has now enabled companies to see in a daily report what the press, blogs or even people on twitter are talking about in relation to their company.
“A massive innovation in technology considering not too long ago, people were paying others to cut out newspaper articles.
“Being part of the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce is something we are really proud of and appreciate the networking opportunities it gives us within the local area.
“We are really excited about submitting an application for the awards – wish us luck!”
