The shortlist for the 2016 ESTnet awards has been released and we are very excited to announce that we have been nominated for a total of FOUR awards:

snappa-1453204929.jpgOur web developer Megan has also been nominated for the Industry Role Model of the Year award due to  her personal career success and her constant efforts both inside and outside of the workplace to promote the role of women in the digital industry and to encourage young girls to consider entering the sector.

VisScore is the high growth tech startup that spun out of Yard and  provides accurate marketing and customer reporting that is both affordable and accessible, based around and including the foundations of algorithmic attribution modelling.

These dynamic industry awards are open to all companies within the electronics, software and technologies sectors in Wales and recognise the success of both companies and individuals who have thrived in 2015.

The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony taking place at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff on Wednesday 2nd March 2016 – good luck to Paul, Meg and Chris and also to the VisScore team!
