Published:  30 November, 2015

NMBS has been announced as a Finalist in the Best Sales & Marketing Assessment Tool category at the upcoming British Excellence in Sales and Marketing Awards (BESMA).

Following the latest round of judging, NMBS was selected from hundreds of nominations for the platform they provide via the NMBS Report Centre to its members and suppliers.

The awards, which are now celebrating their 30th year, seek to reward the efforts of the individuals and teams that drive company performance, as well as recognising the roles played by sales professionals in driving the UK economy forward. Previous winners have included Virgin Media, Yell & E-ON.

Chris Hayward, managing director at NMBS, said: "Over 93% of our members use the NMBS Report Centre on a monthly basis and, with the constant improvements we are making along with the current reports available, we only see the number of users increasing. We are proud that the NMBS Report Centre has been identified as a finalist especially with the amount of entries being submitted."

Julian Reid, business development director of the award organisers The Institute of Sales & Marketing Management, said: "We're very excited about BESMA 2016 as it will be our largest ceremony to date. Each finalist should feel incredibly proud to be shortlisted as this was one of our toughest shortlisting finals we have seen."

The awards ceremony will take place at The Grosvenor Hotel, London on 9 March, 2016, where comedian Dara Ó Briain will present winners with the prestigious award, followed by entertainment produced by the Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart.
