An award-winning Portsmouth company that underpins billions of pounds' worth of global trade has been hailed by the government as a trailblazer in business technology and software.

Transalis, which helps retailers and other firms transact electronically and avoid costly paper documentation, features among a handful of 'hardworking' UK success stories in the latest Parliamentary Review.

The annual publication's half-a-million-strong readership includes policy and decision makers across the public sector and in business life.

Transalis' co-founders and joint managing directors Aniello Sabatino and Paul Simpson were both guests at the review's gala launch at the Houses of Parliament.
The Westminster recognition is the latest step forward for the expanding 15-year-old company which counts more than 10,000 users of its global digital platform. Clients work in sectors such as retail, manufacturing, distribution, logistics, fast-moving consumer goods and health and beauty.
Transalis' cloud-based applications currently facilitate the exchanges of 40 million virtual documents a year, underpinning £3 billion of stock orders across 32 countries.
The company has just been named Medium Business of the Year at the JP South Business Awards in Brighton.

It followed a Portsmouth round earlier this year in which Transalis gained the accolades of both Portsmouth Medium Business and Business of the Year.

In the public sector, Transalis is an accredited services supplier to increasing numbers of users in government departments, local authorities and the NHS.
Paul said: "Being in the Parliamentary Review is all about showcasing best practice in business as a learning tool to the public and private sectors. As well as appearing in print, it was great to be at Westminster and have the chance to explain to ministers and other MPs face-to-face how we are helping to automate supply chain processes around the world."
Review director Daniel Yossman said: "Transalis and other hardworking organisations from across the country have come together to make this year's review possible. Sharing knowledge and insight with both peers and government is essential work and this year's review will reach every corner of the British economy."

Review chairman and former Communities Secretary Sir Eric Pickles added: "It has never been more important for government to hear the views of business and the public sector in a constructive forum. It is also a vital time to share best practice and progress."

Transalis employs a 27-strong team and occupies 2,000 sq ft of space at Portsmouth Technopole.
