Here are the highlights of two more ‘small but perfectly formed’ UK software and IT services companies whose CEOs we met at our inaugural Little British Battler event last week (see here). There’ll be more highlights to come during the week in UKHotViews, only from TechMarketView!
And don’t forget, we will be compiling our in-depth analysis of all 12 companies for publication in our inaugural LBB Report, but this will only be available to eligible TechMarketView subscription service clients.
The passion that CentraStage’s co-founders share for the cloud-based IT management software company is palpable and infectious. Their technology is designed for people managing a distributed IT environment and covers every device, from servers and desktops to tablets and smartphones. It enables asset audit, device monitoring and management, remote support and reporting – a sort of ‘Facebook for computers’. With a disruptive, pay-as-you-go pricing model and no minimum contract, CentraStage has built up a ‘loyal and effervescent’ user base over the last three years that includes household names in the retail, utilities, and IT services markets, as well as some 40 Local Authorities, 4,000 UK schools and varied SMEs. The company’s plans for the future – plus its products’ natural fit with trends such as the growth of mobile internet devices and Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) – make this LBB well worth watching in the months ahead.
Self-styled ‘turn-around’ CEO, Kieron Sambrook-Smith appears to be working his magic again, this time at Web Technology Group (WTG), the reincarnated specialist secure applications systems integrator acquired (as Hyperlink) – and then divested – by Cable & Wireless. WTG’s client list looks like a who’s who in Criminal Justice agencies and beyond; indeed WTG boasts of managing 15 critical national systems used by 300k UK government secure users. The proceeds of last year’s £4m MBO are funding the development of an analytics package and an open source business process platform for Police and Local Government. WTG is almost the definition of a small company punching above its weight!
