PANTHEON Farming Recognized in Europe’s Largest Business Bompetition for its High-Tech Agriculture Input
Datalab has been named a National Champion for Slovenia in The European Business Awards, sponsored by RSM, Europe’s largest business competition set up to celebrate business excellence and best practice in the European business community.
The Awards, now in its 10th year, are supported by business leaders, academics and political representatives from across Europe, and this year engaged with over 33,000 businesses from 34 countries.
Datalab d.d. has been chosen after the first phase of judging by an independent panel. They were evaluated on the core EBA values of innovation, ethics and success, and will now go through to the second stage of the competition, which includes a video and a public vote.
Datalab d.d. entered into the competition with the Farm Information Management Solution, called PANTHEON Farming, supported in 8 EU countries by farming IT professionals joined under a new network, Datalab Agro.
Andrej Mertelj, Datalab CEO said: ‘The decision to take part in the Innovation Category went without saying, since our product’s essence is Continuous Innovation. We’re very proud to be selected as a National Champion. The European Business Awards are widely recognized as the showcase for Europe’s most dynamic companies and we are proud to be recognized at this level.’
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards, said: ‘Congratulations to Datalab, who have been selected to represent their country as National Champions. They are central to the success of Europe’s strong business community, and have shown the core principles we look for: innovation, ethics and success.’
The next round requires the National Champions to make a presentation video, telling their unique story and explaining their business success. The Awards’ independent judges will award the best of this group the ‘Ruban d’Honneur’ status.
Separately, in a two-stage public vote, the videos will be hosted on the European Business Awards website, and the company who receives the most votes in their country will become the ‘National Public Champion’. Last year over 227,000 votes were cast as companies were supported globally by their clients, staff and peers, as well as the general public.
In the 2015/16 competition, all EU member markets were represented plus Turkey, Norway, Switzerland, Serbia and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Their combined revenue exceeded €1.2 trillion employing over 2.5 million people.
The goal of PANTHEON Farming is to be able to look at one screen and see all your farm at work
