ALERT received the Business Internationalisation award from UK Trade and Investment, a British governmental agency for the promotion of foreign investment in the UK.
This award aims to recognize Portuguese companies investing in the UK. The choice of ALERT® products for the ASCC catalogue, by the NHS, and the signing of the first contract with a British hospital led to the attribution of this award to ALERT.
The award ceremony took place in Porto, on March 11, and was presided by Alexander Ellis, the British ambassador in Portugal. During his speech, Alexander Ellis considered ALERT a success story regarding internationalization and an example to other technology companies that intend to enter the UK market.
