Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

PC makers are terribly keen on awards - they look good in ads, don't you know - and so they go in for as many as possible, sending out truckloads of systems for review in the hope of winning Editor's Choice from some two-bit PC monthly, or even a prestigious Register Golden Vulture™ award.

And Evesham.com (nee Micros) is no exception, entering the West Midlands section of the We're in Business awards. The regional winners can look forward to a trip to the finals at the Millennium Dome - what better location for a celebration of business acumen and financial success?

But Evesham first has to beat off stiff competition from the other regional finalists - step forward please local mega corporations Offenham village Post Office and Hampton Farm Shop.

You can help Evesham (or the farm shop) to win by voting here.

Hurry, folks, voting ends today. ®

Competition factoid

The award obviously means a lot to Evesham, as the company took the time to email all its employees suggesting they should vote for the company of their choice:

"Thank you for your help so far. We have today received notification that we have reached the final stages of the regional "We're in Business" Award, run by the Newsquest group of newspapers in conjunction with the City of London and the Millennium Experience.

"To get the coveted place, we have to get as many votes as possible to beat the other finalists. There is also an incentive for you to vote - you can win the chance of a holiday to Toronto for two for 8 days, or a family ticket to the Dome.

"And of course, the chance to go to London to receive the award with one of our directors (for those who voted in the first round)

"To vote for Evesham.com, you can either phone on 0845 124 0050 (calls will cost no more than 6p in total) or vote for free on www.4moneybusiness.co.uk from 18th September.

"Leaflets with details will be sent to the branches today-please take the opportunity to display them."
