Member Spotlight | Chorus Wins Queen’s Award for Enterprise
Chorus are the winners of the 'Queen's Award for Enterprise 2020', displaying outstanding innovation of game-changing technology enabling law enforcement to solve crime...
Chorus Intelligence, the industry leading data cleansing and analysis software provider trusted by law enforcement, yesterday announced that they have won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for outstanding innovation.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious awards for UK business, designed to recognise and encourage outstanding achievements in the fields of innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity.
The awards have been running since 1966 and winners are recognised for invention, design of goods and services and commercial success with her Majesty the Queen personally approving the winners.
Chorus, established in 2011 by Boyd Mulvey, started by providing an advanced cleansing engine, allowing police Analysts to save over 95% of their time when removing noise from communications data and consistently formatting it. Today, that cleansing engine has morphed into a digital data analysis tool that is used by most police forces and all the counter terror units in the UK to help them solve crime and protect the public.
Chorus’ unique ability to solve problems for the police using technology has seen Chorus continue to launch products into the market. Chorus Investigate is an intuitive self-service tool that empowers frontline officers and crime Investigators to quickly get answers from data to open lines of enquiry and improve detection rates. A solution which is completely new to those working on criminal investigations and stimulating a cultural shift which will drive future cost savings in policing and near-police investigations and help save even more lives.
The Chorus platform includes the ability to link to many other software tools allowing a collaborative approach to policing, enabling them to ingest all digital data and share it across departments and police forces – something which is imperative in dealing with terrorism, county lines drug crime and modern slavery.
On winning the award Chorus CEO Boyd Mulvey yesterday said:
“I am immensely proud of the team for their dedication and hard word to provide such innovative products to our industry. Providing solutions that make such a tangible difference to those working to solve crime and protect the public gives everyone a great buzz that you can’t get anywhere else.
“I must also give thanks to our customers for their continued support and belief in Chorus and their feedback that drives our development. We will continue to work side-by-side with them to deliver solutions that enable them to do their job more efficiently and effectively and achieve their goals.
“The Queen’s award has given us more impetus and inspired the team to keep creating best in breed products and there will be a lot more to come from Chorus in the coming months”.
Under normal circumstances the Queen’s Award is formally presented to winners by a member of the Royal Family during a reception at Buckingham Palace in the summer. All winners will wait for further guidance from the Government on such gatherings.
Applications for Queen’s Awards for Enterprise 2021 open on the 1st May 2020. For more information, visit https://www.gov.uk/queens-awards-for-enterprise.
