Escudo Web Software has again been recognised as a winning company, this time for the SME (PYME) of the year for the region of Toledo. The jury’s decision took into account the ability to create new jobs, the level of digitalisation – a major requirement for surviving this period of the pandemic – its level of internationalisation and responsible management. Sponsored by Banco Santander and the Spanish Chamber of Commerce (Cámara de Comercio de España) and now in its fourth year, the recognition is for the hard work put in to achieving all of these goals as well as the contribution to the region. Escudo Web will now go on to the National round and judging process. Many thanks to all of our clients, users (schools, their staff and parents and the children who use our software) as well as to all our partners. Our commitment is to continue to develop market-leading solutions for the education sector, the logistics and transport sector, as well as our developments using blockchain to protect consumers and brands from the increasing threat of counterfeit products, which have thrived in the pandemic, yet in a circular economy proof of authenticity is crucial.
