Tees-based engineering software firm Phusion IM has been shortlisted for an award at a leading hazardous area conference.
Phusion, which provides software and services for projects in the energy, renewables, utilities and other engineering sectors, is one of five companies to be shortlisted for the Best Customer Service Award at the HazardEx 2017 international conference and exhibition.
Billingham-based Phusion was nominated by an employee of a supplier, who cited the helpful and friendly attitude of its staff.
The conference, which is held annually, is a two-day event and exhibition with an awards ceremony and gala dinner held in Cheshire on March 2 and 3.
Past events have attracted between 300 and 400 senior industry attendees, and a large number of conference papers.
Managing director Alex Hayward (pictured above) said: “We’re delighted to be in the running for the Best Customer Service Award at HazardEx 2017.
“It is an honour just to be shortlisted. While we know how important our software applications and the services we provide are to our customers, we also appreciate that our team goes beyond what is normally expected of them in terms of customer service.
“Our products, including our new Phusion Onsite mobile collection tool and the largest library of generic engineering data in the world, give our clients competitive advantages, but we are under no illusion how important the friendly and helpful attitude of our people when it comes to their choice to deal with our company.”
Executive chairman Steve Pearson, who founded the company in 1992, has previously presented at the HazardEx Conference about Phusion’s work on mobile data collection in Hazardous Areas, will be presenting again this year.
