Union Street Technologies’ aBILLity™ Billing System has won the ‘Best Innovation’ category of the prestigious Richmond Business Awards. Open to all companies, organisations and charities either based in, or operating significantly in the borough of Richmond upon Thames, the Richmond Business Awards were created by the Richmond and Twickenham Times and Richmond Borough Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the best of business in the borough.
The award was presented by Secretary of State for Business Vince Cable and Rt Hon MP Zac Goldsmith to Tony Cook, Managing Director of Union Street. Union Street’s entry in the ‘Best Innovation’ category demonstrated a number of innovative features in its aBILLity™ Billing System including its LineGuard fraud detection software, which benefits communication providers and the wider community by detecting unusual calling patterns or charge rates in a customer billing account which in turn helps to stop telecoms fraud early.
Union Street originally moved to Richmond in 2006 and since then has enjoyed enormous success, growing its customer base to now over 400 communication providers, winning numerous awards including the ‘Most Innovative Application Software’ category of the Comms Business Awards 2009, and creating close to 80 high value technical jobs for the local area in the process.
Tony Cook, Managing Director of Union Street Technologies commented, “It’s truly an honour to have won ‘Best Innovation’ at the Richmond Business Awards. I’d like to take the opportunity to thank all our clients for their continued support, and to congratulate everyone at Union Street for their hard work and commitment to making our aBILLity software the best it can be. Winning this award is truly a testament to their efforts.”
