Our business is proud to have won a string of awards and accolades, including listings in The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 and The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100. It has also featured regularly in The Business Magazine’s Solent 250 and Southern Tech 100, and founder and chairman, Alastair Bell, is well known for his entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen.

Bell is at the forefront of helping companies drive down operating costs and improve their ability to engage with their own customers, either by supporting the growth of their channels to market, or by aiding their responsiveness and service quality.
