Commercial finance software vendor trumps 2018 International Trade category
HPD Software, a market leader of commercial finance software has won the International Trade category in the 2018 Queen’s Award for Enterprise – in recogniton of the company’s outstanding overseas growth.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the UK’s most prestigious business awards for UK companies and recognise outstanding achievement in the categories of innovation, international trade and sustainable development. The International Trade category recognises substantial year-on-year growth in export sales. Each year thousands of UK businesses enter this prestigious award programme. An expert panel makes the final selection of companies to receive this coveted award.
HPD Software is a global organisation with customers in over 50 countries and it continues to grow its international portfolio, with recent sales of its flagship LendScape platform in Lebanon, Democratic Republic of Congo, United Arab Emirates and Jordan.
This increased international development, has been helped by HPD adopting a subscription based pricing model with cloud-based delivery, which makes its flagship LendScape platform readily
accessible to operations of any size. Another key contributor to the global expansion is the ability to localise the LendScape platform; language, currencies, taxation rules and working/non-working days. HPD also helps to cultivate invoice finance by funding education programmes in emerging markets. In 2017, 22 students were educated in factoring, courtesy of a bursary HPD provided via Factor’s Chain International.
