Our nomination and subsequent ranking area great endorsement of our strategy, people and focus on loving our customers, being transparent, open and creative– both technically and commercially. The growth is underpinned by strong, strategic, long-term relationships with customers. We deliver complex digital transformation solutions and cloudy digital product build with a healthy sprinkling of award-winning DevOps as a Service, Data and AI solutions. We are now a go-to Microsoft partner in the Not-for-Profit, Membership and Digital Product sectors, especially when clients are looking for complex Azure, Dynamics, Power Platform or cloud re-platforming.
In order to maintain our growth and success, we recognise that we must retain and celebrate our culture and our people– by offering market leading benefits, training packages and support for all our employees. We allow Geeks to become the Uber Geeks they always wanted to be by investing in people, tooling and processes, as well as new technology areas – such as launching our DataScience practice to enable customers to harness the power of Machine Learning and AI to solve complex real world business problems.
Continuing to maintain our customers, talent and technology focus in high growth market verticals means we are just at the start of our success journey. We will only invest in a new practice or service when we know we can offer real value to our customers and sustain the growth of the service. For example, we identified a real need in our customers for an agile, long term DevOps partner that can ensure our solutions continue to evolve and over their life-cycle. So, we established our DevOps practice 3 years ago, because we made sure we only hired the best and stuck to our principles; we were awarded Computing UK’s DevOps Company of The Year for 2019 .
Having tech and market specialisms allows us attract the right talent who are true ‘unicorns’ in their space, in both our UK HQ from where we offer Solution and Business Architecture, Design & UX, Project Management and DevOps, plus our Indian Delivery Centre where the real code junkies and Quality Assurance folk operate. This model of UK creativity and leadership combined with a highly productive, integrated delivery centre in India enables us to offer clients an unmatched level of quality and value.
“How do we do it? 99% hard work and 1% magic and ensuring we are a people-centric organisation. This achievement is a testament to their ongoing talent and hard work. Our open and transparent ethos reflects in both our great customer relationships, unique culture and an environment where we are able to architect the best possible solutions. Our business is founded on a clear strategy to deliver transformational technology services and high-quality customer services in a small number of high growth verticals, which we believe will help us ensure this is just one step on our continued journey of fast paced growth.” – Jay Neale, Managing Director at cloudThing
