Swindon, Wiltshire, July 2019: Chipside, a provider of parking and traffic management technology to more than 170 UK local authorities, has been presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2019 by Mrs Sarah Rose Troughton, Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant of Wiltshire. The Queen's Awards for Enterprise are the highest official UK accolade for British businesses.

Founded in 2003 and employing 50 people, Chipside is a specialist software development company providing digital ticketing and permitting products and services to more than half of all local and national government authorities in the UK.

Paul Moorby OBE, CEO of Chipside, said: “Winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation was welcome recognition for the hard work and results I have seen from my team in recent years”. 

“It was a great honour to invite Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Wiltshire and council representatives to our offices at Callow Park to accept the award and celebrate together. We want to continue promoting innovation in Wiltshire and look forward to working with other local companies to realise the county’s potential.”

Chipside enables the simple, effective and efficient delivery of smart city initiatives. The first digital platform of its kind, its automated processes deliver cost saving benefits and data analysis opportunities to clients. Chipside can help local authorities combine large datasets - such as analysis of traffic flows - with real-time on-street parking demand. This can enable the setting of demand-led parking tariffs and inform decisions around traffic management policies, the building of new parking facilities and the development of new resident parking schemes.

The Queen's Awards for Enterprise is an awards programme for British businesses and other organisations that excel in three categories; International Trade, Innovation and Sustainable Development, with an additional Award for Enterprise Promotion (QAEP), awarded to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to promoting and enhancing enterprise among UK entrepreneurs and companies.
