Mobile marketing company, Vmob has rounded off a golden week, cinching two awards at the NZ Hi-Tech Awards on Friday.

The company collected awards for Best Innovative Hi-Tech Mobile Product and Best Innovative Hi-Tech Service Product, as well as receiving a commendation in their third finalist section for the Best Innovative Software Product.

Chief executive, Scott Bradley was extremely pleased with the results, which he said validated the success and value of Vmob's products.

"It was such a strong field this year - so we're thrilled to have VMob recognised for the significant traction we're making in market."

The win follows a week in which the company, which is listed on the NZX's alternative exchange, announced partnerships with Fly Buys for their loyalty programme, and with Auckland's Heart of the City Group.
