Taxicode, the only taxi-booking service operating across throughout the UK, is now also in the running to be named the overall Website of the Year at the award ceremony later this month. Taxicode is one of three companies competing to win the Startup category, and the public also have the opportunity to vote for their favourite site through the People’s Choice.
Taxicode Director Jonathan Kettle commented on the news, saying: "Everyone at Taxicode is very proud to be included in the Good Web Guide Awards shortlist. All of the companies included are incredibly exciting and inspiring, and it is a great honour to be among them. 2014 has been an incredible year for Taxicode, with our smartphone app launching earlier this year and some incredible opportunities arising, including the company recently joining UK travel trade association ABTA. We’re always looking to evolve and innovate the business, and we can’t wait to see what 2015 will have in store."
The judges of The GWG Awards 2014 have had a huge number of brilliant websites to test over the last few weeks, in order to find the very best websites of the year. The entries have covered a very diverse range of subjects, and it has taken a great deal of work to sort them down into the final few. One of the GWG Awards judges, Michelle Carvill, said: "It's been great to uncover some fabulously innovative services I didn't even know existed!"
The category winners and overall Website of the Year will be announced by Xenios Thrasyvoulou of PeoplePerHour at the Awards Reception on Monday 17th November, at The Royal Institution of Great Britain, Albemarle Street, W1, London.
Voting for the People’s Choice closes at midday, Monday 17th November. You can vote for Taxicode here:
