At the ISA Awards last year, Company of the Year went to customer experience management software player Arantech, which achieved 100pc sales growth in the past year.

The New Company of the Year Award went to Ammado, a social networking site for charities that aims to attract socially responsible but time-strapped people who want to help their favourite charities.

The Sales Achievement Award went to Globoforce, a company that provides employee recognition outsourcing services for some of the world’s biggest companies.

Last year’s Technology Innovation Award went to games software company Havok, which was involved in the development of the largest ever selling computer game, Halo 3.

The Partnership of the Year Award went to Allfinanz for its partnership with Zurich Financial Services. Allfinanz’s technology underwrites large volumes of insurance claims, work that traditionally was carried out manually.
