‘Best Telecoms Project of the Year’ finalist
The National Technology Awards are the UK’s most comprehensive celebration of technology in the year. As a tech start-up hell bent on innovation, we’re delighted to have made the shortlist twice!

Pickr’s technology is designed and built to empower fibre professionals and has been recognised as a finalist in the ‘Telecoms Project of the Year’ category!

Fibre businesses and the people whose skills they need are at the forefront of making the UK’s full fibre vision a reality. Our platform supports ambitious contractors and businesses to work better together. Some of our latest innovations recognised include;

  • Watchman – Watchman is an in-app feature that raises an alarm if contractors don’t mark themselves as safely arriving on site.
  • Networks – A tool that allows contractors to build a Network of colleagues. They can then self-form Delivery Teams and work direct for major suppliers.
  • Work Audit Tool – A feature that allows contractors to evidence their work, maintaining high standards and reducing delayed payments.

There are some big names in this category, and we’re pleased to share the shortlist with the likes of EE and KCOM. You can see the full shortlist here.

Technology doesn’t exist in a vacuum, which is why the National Tech Awards has launched a new category for 2020; ‘Best Tech Deal’. We’re delighted to have been shortlisted in this category with our investors, Episode1.

There’s no doubt partnering with Episode1 has accelerated our start-up journey, allowing us to better serve the telecoms community. Episode1 have supported us in growing a great team, building scalable tech and in time, will help us disrupt an entire industry. We’re just one of many exciting tech companies in Episode1’s portfolio. You can learn more about them and what they do here.

We’re looking forward to the results which will be announced at a celebratory event at the London Marriott Hotel on the 7th of May. You can follow all the action on NTA Twitter page.

Why is fibre such a politicised issue?

As the December 11th election approaches, all the parties are out pushing their agenda on the campaign trail. Among the well-trodden battle grounds of Brexit, the NHS and immigration, the UK’s fibre network (or lack of it) has become a key issue.  Why has fibre become...
