TrainTransport software group, and University of Leeds spin-out, Tracsis have won Company of the Year at the Small Cap Awards, a celebration of Britain’s smaller businesses.

The company scooped the prize at the inaugural event held at BAFTA in London on 24th April. The awards recognise outstanding achievement in the quoted UK small and micro-cap market and the people and companies that have demonstrated the benefits and advantages of access to public markets.

Tracsis provides the transportation industry with tools to control and optimise critical aspects of resource optimisation and delivery with the ultimate goal of increasing efficiency, reducing cost and improving performance.

John McArthur, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "I am delighted to announce that Tracsis has won this award in what has been a milestone year for the Group. This year has seen further growth, international progress, plus of course the recent acquisition of Sky High PLC, which adds considerable breadth, depth and scale to our offering. It is great to have our team's hard work recognised by the Small Cap Awards and we look forward to the coming year with confidence."
