March 20, 2002 - Unipalm, a software distribution company located in Newmarket, Suffolk, has been named the winner of the Best Marketing Campaign in 2001 Award by Ipswitch, Inc. at its Fourth Annual International Distributor Conference February 7 and 8 in Malta.

By selling our products, Unipalm is helping U.K. companies increase productivity and the quality of their work.
