Computing firm scoops top business gong

A computing and outsourcing company has won a top prize in awards for leading public, private and voluntary sector organisations.

Belfast’s Equiniti ICS was awarded the Northern Ireland Quality Award at a ceremony in Belfast’s Ramada Hotel.

Business in the Community, St Joseph’s Primary School in Belfast and Edenderry Nursery also won quality awards.

Other winning organisations included manufacturing company Clarehill Plastics, a number of schools from across Northern Ireland and various public sector bodies.

The Northern Ireland Quality Awards are organised by the Centre for Competitiveness (CforC) and sponsored by Invest Northern Ireland, Ulster Bank, the Department of Finance and Personnel (DFP), Northgate, HP and John Thompson and Sons. The awards use the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) Excellence Model to measure the achievements of organisations.

Bob Barbour, chief executive of CforC, said: “The excellence model has proven to bring significant performance improvement to organisations across Northern Ireland.”

Equiniti ICS, a business process outsourcing and IT service provider, has 300 staff and offices in both Belfast and London.
