Vodafone Platinum Partner Olive Communications has leapt 42 places up the Sunday Times Hiscox 2014 Tech Track 100 after appearing in the table for the second consecutive year.
The unified comms provider now ranks at number 49 in the Tech Track 100, which measures the fastest growing privately owned UK technology firms. The rankings are based on revenues from the past three years.
CEO Martin Flick (pictured) said the ranking followed an eventful year for Olive which has seen the company win long term contracts with major enterprise customers including Lastminute.com, Chelsea FC, Murphy and The Royal Household.
Flick added: ‘At the same time we have enhanced and expanded customer operations including a large new customer contact centre at Hatfield, we have revitalised our brand and won a number of top industry awards, which has all contributed to a strong increase in revenues and profitability.’
Flick said the company was continuing to invest in growth, pointing to its recent acquisition of SafetyBank. He added that the acquisition ‘gave Olive an unrivalled product and service portfolio that should see our organic growth trend continue next year and beyond.’
Speaking to Mobile, Flick said SafetyBank strengthened Olive’s arm in the health sector, pointing to its most recent deal with Partnerships in Care, which provides secure healthcare facilities to 23 NHS hospitals.
The mobile device management deal allows Partnerships in Care to provide its workforce with secure tablet access to email and apps. Tablets can also be remotely wiped and reassigned to another user.
Flick said: ‘As businesses embrace the future of work and adopt BYOD and remote working policies, it’s important to invest time in considering how you can best safeguard your company’s data.’
