HotDocs, product of AbacusNext and global leader in document automation, wins auspicious award for second time.
Edinburgh, UK, April 26, 2018 — HotDocs, the global leader in document automation software powered by AbacusNext, has been named a winner of the 2018 Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, the UK’s highest accolade for business success. HotDocs received the award for achievement in International Trade in recognition of thriving overseas growth, accounting for an over seventy percent increase in revenue in the last three years.
Since 1965, the Queen’s Awards have recognised exceptional UK businesses who excel at international trade, innovations, or sustainable development—they are the highest official UK awards for enterprise excellence. HotDocs will be attending a reception at Buckingham Palace where Prince Charles will present the award on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen. This is HotDoc’s second Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the first was in 2013, also for excellence in International Trade.
“We are proud to have been named a Queen’s Award winner for the second time in five years. This achievement is a testament to the passion and dedication of our entire organisation and the success our sales team has had growing our business overseas,” said Gary Eunson, Global Sales Director for HotDocs. “The international appetite for HotDocs is undeniable, and we plan to continue our aggressive growth strategy in 2018 and beyond.”
“It is a great honour for HotDocs to have earned Royal recognition and the prestigious Queen’s Award,” said Alessandra Lezama, CEO of AbacusNext. “This award is an extraordinary accomplishment that recognises the excellence of HotDoc’s pioneering products and the tireless work of our amazing team on both sides of the Atlantic.”
