We are delighted to announce that CSL has been named the Digital Transformation Company of the Year at the SDC Awards 2023. The SDC (Storage, Digitalisation & Cloud) Awards have been running for 14 years, recognising the innovation, expertise, and success across a range of key disciplines. The award showcases significant achievements in providing technological solutions facilitating end-users in executing digital transformation initiatives.

For over 25 years, CSL has been the leading European provider of Critical Connectivity. Today, we have over 2.5 million connections supporting business and mission-critical IoT applications across Europe. Having pioneered the transition from wired to wireless connectivity in the Security and Health sectors, we have a unique heritage and track record in delivering Critical Connectivity. We now play a crucial role in the Critical National Infrastructure ecosystem and we are delivering our solutions into the broader IoT market by partnering with all European Mobile Network Operators (MNOs)

Our recent achievements include securing several new contracts with major utility and retail companies. We are running a digital transformation programme with the UK's largest water and wastewater company, transforming over 2,000 remote sites into fully connected, digital operations. All of which can capture and process data for the 2.6 billion litres of drinking water, and 4.4 billion litres of wastewater they process daily. In addition, we have been chosen to deliver a UK-wide retail transformation by a leading multinational lottery operator. This initiative aims to empower small to medium-sized retailers with the digitalisation of their stores, providing Critical Connectivity to fuel lottery terminals in major retail outlets.

Our newest innovation, VoiceLink converts PSTN calls to 4G VoLTE, ensuring analogue systems are future-proofed and can continue to make voice calls. The solution creates a bridge between the old and new technology, and allows existing devices to continue working after the PSTN Switch-Off. VoiceLink is the ideal solution for lift alarms, found across retail, local councils, hospitals and business premises. It can also upgrade emergency phone lines that are present in many high-risk environments such as motorways, national grid sites, and petrol forecourts.

The recognition as the Digital Transformation Company of the Year is a testament to our commitment to innovation within a transformative industry, alongside individual votes, emphasising the trust and confidence placed in CSL's expertise. The winners were decided by votes cast by the industry and recently announced at an awards dinner in London. We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who voted for us. Congratulations to all the winners!
