Home care software supplier wins top accolade at business awards


Home care software company Unique IQ is celebrating after being named Business of the Year at the recent Birmingham Awards.

The Redditch-based technology firm, which develops care management software for domiciliary care organisations, took home the trophy after being selected from a shortlist of seven of the best local businesses, following a public vote and panel interview.

Unique IQ was praised for its innovation and technology, which is helping to change the face of the care industry.

The judges also highlighted Unique IQ’s rapid growth from a small company to a “nationwide innovator”, and for taking the time to train apprentices and share knowledge. The technology company was described as a “real asset to the city of Birmingham”.

Unique IQ founder and managing director David Lynes said: “it’s a real honour to have been named as business of the year. It’s fantastic to be recognised for our contribution to the home care industry, as we work hard to improve the working lives of domiciliary carers through our software, as well as helping them to deliver better care to those who need it.

“It’s also recognition for the whole team, particularly those who work tirelessly behind the scenes to continuously improve both our software and service to customers. I’m very grateful for all of the effort and hard work that the fantastic team at Unique IQ put in, as well as to our supporters who voted for us, and who have been with us as we’ve grown”.

Unique IQ has grown significantly during 2019, having received scale-up funding from the Midlands Engine Investment Fund.

Now in their fifth year, the Birmingham Awards recognise the individuals and organisations that have made an outstanding contribution to the city of Birmingham.

  1. This is a well deserved award. It just shows that technology can be used in nearly any way to better the lives of everyone. Home care is one of the businesses that needs all the help it can get. That is because it can be difficult, not to mention there are never enough workers in this field. So any way that these dedicated people can get assistance is a good idea.
