BuildStore has been shortlisted for two major awards at the prestigious National Business Awards for Scotland.
BuildStore is one of five finalists in two categories – The E-Business Strategy of the Year and The Growth Strategy of the Year.
BuildStore will make a presentation to the judges in July and the winners will be announced on September 9 2004 at a gala ceremony at the Glasgow Hilton. Sponsors of the event include GNER, NTL Business and Scottish Power.
E-Business Strategy judges will make this award to the organisation that can best demonstrate how its e-business strategy has given it significant competitive edge.
BuildStore, which claims to focus on 'growing a market, not just a business' launched BuildLoan in 2001 to service the intermediary market. BuildStore says that prior to the arrival of BuildLoan, intermediaries had no means of converting self build leads into clients.
Raymond Conner, founder and managing director of BuildStore, says: “This is a prestigious award and we are delighted to be shortlisted alongside the cream of Scottish business. The Buildstore team has worked tirelessly and has shown huge commitment to making self build accessible to intermediaries, providing them with a reliable service and generating a newrevenue stream for those smart enough to embrace it.”
