Premier technology solutions provider to the leisure, entertainment and cultural markets, accesso, has received The Queen’s Award for Innovation.
The award was presented in recognition of the company’s virtual queuing solution, accesso LoQueueSM, which allows visitors to reserve their place in line virtually using a proprietary handheld device, smart phone or RFID wristband. Estimates suggest that this technology has already saved users around 4.5 billion minutes in queuing time.
Tom Burnet, accesso CEO, said that the company was “immensely proud” to receive the award. “Our dedication to innovation and technology has helped us become the leading provider of virtual queuing and ticketing solutions for venues around the world and we are proud to be recognised for our efforts."
Over 900 attractions and venues worldwide utilise accesso's leading-edge point of sale, ticketing, engagement and payment solutions.
The Queen’s Award, now in its 50th year, celebrates the efforts of small UK businesses in the areas of exporting, innovation and enterprise promotion. This is the second time the company has been favoured with one of these prestigious awards. They received The Queen’s Award for International Trade in 2011.
