Leading Huddersfield-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider, Adventoris, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the global 2021 SaaS Awards Program in the category for Best SaaS Product for Supply Chain/ Warehouse Management.

Now in its sixth year celebrating software innovation the Software-as-a-Service Awards program accepts entries worldwide, including the US, Canada, Australasia, EMEA and UK.

Based at the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre in Huddersfield, Adventoris is the creator of SwiftCloud, a ground-breaking mobile business to business software that revolutionises the way companies make sales and engage with their customers.

SwiftCloud is a customisable B2B mobile app platform for businesses, including those working within supply chain and warehouse management, that enables their customers to see products, communicate with the company and make orders 24/7, all at the click of a button.

Benefits include increased efficiency and can save customers over 50% in ordering time. Clients have experienced both customer sales and satisfaction increasing significantly when utilising this technology.

Commenting on the shortlist, Adventoris CEO James Clarkson said: “The pandemic brought incredibly challenging times for many businesses and industries severely affected by the lockdown situation where normal sales channels and operational processes were disrupted, in particular within supply chain and warehouse management.

“The last year and a half have been extraordinarily busy for the team at Adventoris as we responded to the increase in businesses embracing digital sales processes.

“Being shortlisted for this award is testament to the whole team’s ongoing hard work, determination and innovation in creating apps to ensure businesses can operate more efficiently, and in many cases enabling them to continue to operate into the future.”

Categories for 2021 include Best Enterprise-Level SaaS and Best Data-Driven SaaS, alongside new categories including ‘Bespoke SaaS Solution.’

Head of operations for the SaaS Awards, James Williams, said: “Just as SaaS technologies have been vital in pivoting organisational functions to respond to global crises, they will be essential as we look forward to returning to normal levels of productivity.

“We’ve seen remarkably innovative solutions across all conceivable areas of industry, and it’s increasingly difficult for our team to identify the entrants that can’t make it past this shortlist stage.

“The shortlisted candidates announced today, however, have made it through that first round. They represent truly innovative thinkers in the SaaS industry, whether they’re freshly-funded disruptors or established names.

“Our judges have some incredibly difficult decisions to make before announcing the final winners in each category of the software awards at the end of August.”
