Trexy’s CEO and Inventor, Nigel Hamilton said: “Being recognised for technical innovation by the leading IT body in the UK is a great endorsement of our technology. We are very excited about receiving a medal from the BCS.”
Over 200 companies entered the BCS IT Professional Awards 2006 across four categories: Business Achievement; Technology; Professional Development; and President's Award.
London based Trexy Limited was awarded a medal in the ‘Services’ category of the Technology Award.
The announcement was made at the BCS Summer Party held yesterday in London.
Trexy.com is a free, online search service enabling users to remember their searches and the web pages visited by creating search trails.
