The victors – once they have recovered from the celebrations – will now be able to tell existing and potential customers that, having successfully negotiated the UK's most rigorously judged IT awards process, they truly are at the top of their game.

Adam Gerrard, CTO of LateRooms.com, who saw his organisation win the IT Employer of the Year award, explained that he entered the Awards in order to gain recognition for the work of his team.

"In the past 12 months we have achieved so much at The LateRooms Group that I really wanted the team to have the opportunity for some external recognition of their achievements.

"We have transformed the way the IT team works and the value that it delivers to the business," he added.
