Except for rather small, inconspicuous blogposts or Facebook posts, we have never really made a big fuss about it. But now that we’ve collected quite a few, we’re going to do it: We’re going to show off a little bit with the amount of awards and nominations we’ve received as HeiReS since our founding with our own or client projects.
Already business plan and foundation of the predecessor sole proprietorship XamlFab of Peggy was in the top 10 finalists of the Founder’s Prize AC² as highly innovative and fit for the future. The foundations for HeiReS were already defined in it, which has proven to be a success today.
With SIDEXIS 4, our customer project for Sirona Densply, which has been with us for a very long time, we were able to red dot Design-Award “best of the best” in 2015/2016, which fills Peggy in particular as a designer with the utmost pride.
Our integration and migration assistance solution “Welcome App Germany” was already available in November 2015 for the Querdenker Award nominated in the top ten in the Green category (thought leaders for sustainability). Likewise, in December 2016, we were nominated for the Saxon Integration Award with the “Welcome App Germany” and invited to the state parliament.
In February 2017, it was off to Frankfurt to see the Deutscher Designpreis with a “Special Mention” award. This was again for SIDEXIS 4 – because it is simply top in terms of design. Now the UI design of SIDEXIS 4 has even been noticed internationally accordingly, so that we are in the running for the prestigious “A DESIGN” Award 2017 for User Interface Design. The award ceremony is still to come.
And last but not least, our pride and joy: Since 2013, Peggy and Lars, the two HeiReS shareholder-managers but also innovative designers and developers, have been consistently working with the Microsoft MVP Award (Wertvollste Fachkraft) in the Windows Development category. For a small company with just under 10 employees, 2 MVPs is already crazy. Basically, we are 3 MVPs, because our gifted working student Tom is also MVP.
All in all, we are quite proud of what we have achieved in the past few years. But we still have a long way to go! We are working on exciting projects – partly on our own, partly with the trust of long-standing customers and partners – where quality, design, usability as well as high-quality software development and innovation will continue to be of crucial importance.
