11/02/2014 - Some of the brightest and best in their respective fields gathered at Integrated Systems Europe for the AV News Awards 2014 and our very own Andy Bell came away with the title of 'Technologist of the Year'.
Beating off stiff competition in what was described as one of the toughest categories to judge, the award recognised Andy's work as Chief Engineer behind DisplayNote and the overall success of DisplayNote to date.
Andy Bell heads up our product development team in our Murcia office in Spain, managing a fantastic team of coders and developers in producing DisplayNote and our two newer family members, Swoodle and Montage. He also comes out on the road with us when we present at conferences and events as his knowledge of the technical can and cant's of the systems is unbeatable.
