Fast times and festive success at Fairsail
With 2015 beginning to draw to a close, it’s a great time to look back on our many successes over the year. From new customers and increasing analyst recognition to rapid business growth and brilliant new technology, it’s been a busy 12 months at Sage People.
This year, we’re delighted to continue to support our customers as they work to increase HR productivity and workforce visibility, and welcome several new organizations such as Skyscanner, Zipcar and Worldwide Clinical Trials to our customer community. Providing a solution that fits our customers’ needs is our priority, and we love to learn from our customers like Mitsubishi UFJ who are focused on providing a quick but comprehensive route to better HR and better workforce experiences. It’s this mid-size enterprise success that fuels our growth, which is set to increase in 2016. But though things might be winding down, we’re not quite done yet.
Over the last few weeks, Sage People has been awarded not just one, but three prestigious industry accolades.
Kicking the awards season off was Computing’s UK IT Industry Awards. Honouring the brightest in the cloud industry, we were thrilled to be Highly Commended in the Cloud Provider of the Year category, fighting off huge competition from the likes of fellow HR provider Financial Force, amongst others.
At the end of last month, we were named for the second year running among Deloitte’s 2015 UK Technology Fast 50. The award, which celebrates innovation and entrepreneurship, was granted in recognition of our enormous 1150% over the last four years, during which time our flourishing customer community expanded to over 130,000 end users and our team quadrupled. We were particularly excited to have placed at number 15 on the list – a considerable jump on our number 39 position last year and a testament to quite how far Sage People has come, and how fast we’re progressing.
Hot on the heels of the Fast 50 news, we were also honoured with recognition from Aragon Research as a ‘Hot Vendor in Human Resources’. Swinda Salazar-Piquemal, our President of Americas, was on hand to collect the award from Aragon Research, a research and advisory firm that helps companies make better technology buying decisions. It’s wonderful validation of Sage People’s work, and high praise from such a well-respected and deeply influential name in the field.
With trophies now in pride of place in our UK and US offices, the awards have helped deliver a renewed sense of purpose as we enter the New Year. Here’s to even more success in 2016.
