Last week this year’s Academy Award nominations were revealed to the world, and the shortlist includes some fantastic work. Whatever hurdles that may have been stopping you from watching The Grand Budapest Hotel, for example – jump them. Or run around them. It’s amazing. Nominated for an impressive nine Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Achievement in Directing and Best Original Screenplay, the movie tells the story of how a quirky hotel concierge and his protégé bell-boy came to acquire the hotel they worked and lived in, and the film is certainly worthy of every award for which it’s nominated. To some, a nomination is such an honour that the mere nod recognition granted by the Academy is prize enough to kick-start a career, cement an achievement, even acknowledge a lifetime’s work.
Last week we took great pleasure in finding Propertyserve nominated as a finalist for the Tomorrow’s FM 2015 Awards. Joining us in the shortlist are another 49 stand-out products and services that Tomorrow’s FM magazine have deemed as things facilities management could not live without, and we’re thrilled to be included alongside such highly esteemed company.
To be nominated for such an award really shows us how far we’ve come, and having celebrated our ten year anniversary last summer we’re certainly grateful for the recognition from one of the industry’s top FM magazines. The only thing now that stands between us and the coveted Tomorrow’s FM Award 2015 is the final decision that lies in the hands of the magazine’s readers by way of online vote. The poll is open until March 27th and votes can be cast here on Tomorrow’s FM’s website. Voting is quick and easy – simply follow the link and choose ‘FM Helpdesk – Propertyserve UK’ if you feel that we deserve the prize!
We see this nomination as a sign of things to come and with so many exciting things in the pipeline, 2015 is beginning to look like our most prosperous year yet!
