UKCloud and Celaton win Queen’s Awards

lWe’re delighted to announce that a couple of TechMarketView’s good friends have won Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in Innovation 2017.

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider UKCloud (formerly Skyscape Cloud Services) and intelligent automation player Celaton have both been give the prestigious award for their achievements.

The Queen’s Award rewards businesses for outstanding achievements across International Trade, Innovation, Sustainable Development and promoting opportunity through social mobility. The Innovation category awards companies that have shown ‘outstanding commercial success [selling their innovation] over the past two years, or continuous commercial success over five years’.

lUKCloud is certainly delivering on the commercial success. It is the number one fastest growing company in the Sunday Time Tech Track 100 (see here), with revenues doubling in the past year to £32m, and a 10% operating margin. UKCloud is benefitting significantly from the shift to cloud-based infrastructure provisioning via the G-Cloud framework, and its platform is contributing to several high-profile initiatives like the Cabinet Office Digital Exemplar projects and the 100,000 Genomes Project.

lCelaton has won the award for its artificial intelligence/machine learning software platform called InStream, which is being used by brands like Virgin Trains, ASOS and DixonsCarphone to transform their customer service operations (see here). It is also versatile in its application too, in use in adjacent areas like e-invoicing and claims handling at scale. Celaton operates in a highly disruptive space of intelligent automation, which has huge potential to transform business services operations over the next decade. To date the platform has successfully streamlined over 215 work streams across 35 brands and driven 25% growth of the company over the last 5 years.

There a number of other interesting UK tech SMEs on the list too. These include: two-time winner, assistive learning technology provider Inclusive Technology; customer engagement player Creative Virtual, financial regulatory reporting player Kaizen Reporting Ltd, cloud-based learning and development player OneFile, insurance social media claims handling player Claims Consortium Group, online lending platform Quint Group, and patient data clinical assessment platform provider Syn que non Ltd

We will be keen to keep tabs on all of these winners. And wish them much success to come.
