It is very rare for a company to win one of our awards more than once but when it does happen, we provide a special GOLD AWARD to signify the event.
ShieldCrest Publishing is part of Pressman House Publishing Ltd and has won our best publisher award twice and our innovation award. To commemorate this we invited them to a ceremony in August where we awarded them the Gold multi-winner Award and the picture shows Steve Robson collecting the trophy on behalf of ShieldCrest.
We offer them our sincere congratulations.
How We Choose the Winners
With such a broad range of businesses being recognised, we look at each case individually and assess how the team have harnessed more effective processes, products or ideas, in order to: transform their industry for the better, increase profits, and/or offer a more successful service.
Products and Services
This category is essential in determining if the business is achieving the ‘excellence’ aspect of the award title. We are then concerned with how a company’s products and services are unique from competitors, in what ways they could be considered innovative, and most importantly, how clearly and effectively this information is conveyed to customers on the web site.
We look into what methods a business has implemented in order to achieve the highest level of customer service, in what ways the team go above and beyond a customer’s most basic expectations and how this has positively impacted the overall productivity and reception of a company. We also take notice of whether a business monitors customer service quality with the view to make improvements.
Following our success in both 2018 and 2019 when we were awarded Best Publisher by SME Business Journal; we were delighted to learn from Prestige Awards that they were awarding us Best Publisher for 2021.

In the 12 years since opening, the publishing experts have seen notable expansion and their clients have grown exponentially from homegrown UK writers to authors from all across the world.

These services including a dedicated author web page with an online book purchase facility to stimulate early sales.
