FreeAgent wins big at the British Accountancy Awards Thursday 27 November 2014 PDF Print FreeAgent triumphed to be named as “Practice Software Product of the Year” Pioneering UK online accounting system named “Practice Software Product of the Year” at 2014 British Accountancy Awards FreeAgent, the UK’s market-leader in online accounting specifically-designed for micro businesses and freelancers, is celebrating after scooping one of the top titles at this year’s British Accountancy Awards. Facing stiff competition from a field of leading names in the software sector, FreeAgent triumphed to be named as “Practice Software Product of the Year” at the glittering awards ceremony in London - which is widely regarded as the industry equivalent of the Oscars for the UK accountancy profession. The prestigious award is the second major accolade FreeAgent has received within a week, following its top 20 position on the 2014 Deloitte Fast 50; the annual rundown of the UK’s fastest-growing tech companies. This is the second year running that the company has been featured on the Fast 50 list, cementing its position as one of the country’s most innovative and rapidly-expanding tech firms. The award follows other 2014 accolades: such as inclusion on the Sunday Times TechTrack “Ones to Watch” and the FinTech 50 lists, and success at the ScotlandIS Digital Technology Awards. Ed Molyneux, CEO and co-founder of FreeAgent, said: “The past year has been a phenomenal period for FreeAgent, and winning at the British Accountancy Awards represents the icing on the cake. “We’ve worked exceptionally hard in 2014 to forge key partnerships with UK accountancy practices and an increasing number of them are now using FreeAgent to improve the way they work with their small business clients. Being named Practice Software Product of the Year is a real testament to all of this hard work and a validation of the great service we’re providing to accountants and their clients. “We’re absolutely delighted with our British Accountancy Awards win - along with all of the other successes that FreeAgent has experienced during 2014 - and we look forward to building on this and continuing to offer the best service possible to small businesses, freelancers and their accountants.” Earlier in 2014, FreeAgent was named as one of the Sunday Times TechTrack “Ones to Watch”, and was listed in the FinTech50 - the annual list of Europe’s 50 most innovative and disruptive financial technology firms.
