Unique IQ is finishing 2019 on a high after winning ‘Innovation of the Year’ at the North Worcestershire Business Awards.

The team at Unique IQ were recognised for their innovative software solutions which are helping to improve the daily working lives of carers within domiciliary care organisations, in turn supporting the provision of better social care to the people who need it.

The Redditch-based software company was selected from over 50 of the region’s best businesses at the inaugural awards, which took place at Kidderminster’s Hogarths Stone Manor, and were hosted by the BBC’s Joanne Malin.

Amongst Unique IQ’s innovations this year were developments to its digital care management software, which is helping home care agencies transition from relying on paper-based, manual processes to harnessing the power of innovative digital tools.

New technology is giving care workers up-to-the minute information about the people they care for at the touch of a button within Unique IQ’s IQ:timecard MOBILE app, whilst in-built fail-safes and real-time alerting make sure that the highest standards of care are being delivered.

Managing Director of Unique IQ, David Lynes, said of the award: “I am immensely proud that we’ve won this award for Innovation of the Year. It’s encouraging recognition of the team’s efforts to deliver innovation to our clients, and to make a genuine difference.

“I’m so happy for the whole team. The people we have at Unique IQ are amazing and they truly deserve the recognition.”

Unique IQ’s award for innovation comes hot on the heels of being named ‘Business of the Year’ at the recent Birmingham Awards.

It’s been a successful year for the technology company, with investment from the Midlands Engine Investment Fund in late 2018 fuelling significant growth and accelerating product development. With exciting future plans, including new partnerships, further expansion to the team and more digital tools on the horizon to make the lives of remote workers easier, 2020 is shaping up to be another successful year.

The inaugural North Worcestershire Business Awards were launched to celebrate the rising stars of the region. The Innovation of the Year award, sponsored by WINN, recognises businesses in the area that innovate in both the products or services they deliver and in their ways of working.
