Two projects developed by Nighthawk Software have received awards at this years prestigious Royal Highland Show, the leading event for the Scottish agricultural industry.
Both projects were nominated in the category of Technical Innovation, a category created to recognise design and innovation across agri-sector machinery and equipment. The awards showcase inventions and innovations that demonstrate a positive impact on agriculture; horticulture; equestrian; forestry; renewable energy; and estate activities.
SafeForestry, a risk assessment and competency mobile app developed for our clients Duffy Skyling, originally covering the forestry industry, but currently being expanded to cover a wider range of industries such as farming and construction, was nominated for a Silver award in Technical innovation.
Also receiving an award was our innovate farm management platform Agri Ignite developed for 5 Agri. While still in development and not currently publicly available, Agri ignite was recognised with a commendation in the technical innovation category, primarily on our work to provide a digital tool to assist 5 Agri with completing this years IACS applications. This commendation may later be upgraded to a Gold/Silver award once the project launches.
“It’s a great honour to receive an award from such a prestigious event such as the Royal Highland Show, so to receive awards for two projects in the same category is extra special. It’s a testament for the hard work put in by the team over the last few years to develop these two exciting projects. We look forward to continuing our work with both clients to further enhance these products and continue to produce innovative solutions to transform the respective industries.” said Gavin Coates, Director of Nighthawk Software
