From over 80 submissions, the awards went to the public vote and after receiving more than 12,000 votes from engaged members of the industry. Using a combination of votes received and by judging each entry on its own individual merit a shortlist was created and subsequently then opened up to a select team of industry experts to decide on the winners in each category.

Airport users of Better Security include Heathrow, Dublin, London Luton, and Geneva. Better Security is a dedicated module within Better Airport® allowing airports and staff providers to plan the all security check-point operation in a single platform. Unanticipated queues are a thing of the past as the checkpoint operation is simulated to precision ahead of the day of operation. This allows the entire team to plan the security operation all the way from budgeting to execution and to performance evaluation.
