Screen sharing IT group Vizolution has been nominated as one of three finalists for the Innovative Software Package of the Year at the ESTnet Awards in Wales, for its vScreen product.
vScreen enables call centre staff and advisers to conduct a virtual face-to-face meeting, while authorised documents can be shared with a customers over an encrypted connection.
In just its first year since launch it is now being used by three of the top five UK lenders.
Bill Safran, chief executive officer of Vizolution, said: “It is a huge honour for the company and we are delighted to have made the shortlist amongst such stiff competition.
“We’ve enjoyed some remarkable success since the launch of vScreen and believe that having this acknowledged by a prestigious award is well-deserved recognition of the skills and efforts of our chief technical officer Huw Rees and his team in the Baglan Bay Innovation Centre in Port Talbot.”
He added that the support from Finance Wales, one of the largest regional SME investment companies, has been integral. Due to its support in a series of pilots with financial services Vizolution could demonstrate the benefits of its product in terms of sales conversions and customer experience.

“There is a wealth of talent in the industry in Wales and we have a great opportunity with the ESTnet awards programme to raise the profile of the sector and celebrate its achievements.”
