Redditch-based technology firm, Unique IQ, has been named best management technology supplier to the care industry, in the inaugural Care Sector Supplier Awards.
The awards, which took place digitally on Friday 20th November, seek out the best providers of products and services to the care sector in the UK, with judges looking for evidence of innovation, enterprise and performance.
In a hard fought category, in which two additional awards of merit were handed out, Unique IQ received recognition for how its care management software is paving the way for digital transformation in the care sector, helping to improve care standards and supporting frontline care staff.
And in addition to taking home the management technology prize, Unique IQ was also named one of just three contenders for the overall Grand Prix gold award for Outstanding Care Sector Supplier.

The team has worked exceptionally hard to make sure the care organisations relying on our software have the tools they need to deliver timely and responsive care to people who need it, so this means a lot to all of us at Unique IQ.
“Our customers have been dealing with some extremely challenging circumstances this year, so I really do feel very humbled to be recognised for the supporting role we play,” Lynes continued.
