New ranking tops tech group’s sizzling summer of nine key award shortlists
DIGITAL transformation and customer experience specialist, FourNet, has topped its summer series of important award shortlists by being ranked in the top 20 in a broad-ranging list of top 50 tech companies in Greater Manchester.
Others well-known names in the top 50, but which are ranked lower than FourNet, include MediaCityUK-based Dock10, where ‘Match of the Day’ is filmed, and Covid testing group Yourgene Health.
The latest rankings, based on turnover, follow a sizzling summer of good news for FourNet, which has been named as a finalist in various categories at some of the most important awards ceremonies across the sector.
Richard Pennington, FourNet CEO, said: “We are delighted to come in at number 18 on this new list of growing companies in the digital sector in Greater Manchester. We’re also extremely pleased to have made so many Award shortlists over the summer.
“The fact that we have made all these finals is a testament to the innovation and hard work by our team over a tough and unpredictable year.”
FourNet has been shortlisted for two awards – Mid Market ICT Solution and Enterprise ICT Solution – at the Comms Business Awards, taking place on September 21st in Birmingham.
The group’s also in the finals for Enterprise Vertical Market Customer Solution at the Comms National Awards on October 7th in London.
The European ICT Awards are held on October 19th, in London, where FourNet is up for four awards, including Enterprise Cloud Solution, Managed Service Solution, Public Sector or Utilities Solution, and Innovating Managed Services Solution.
FourNet’s also shortlisted twice at the CRN Channel Awards, for the Managed Services and Public Sector categories.
In June 2021, leading mid-market investor Palatine Private Equity acquired a majority stake in award-winning FourNet, which has clients including 10 Downing Street, the Cabinet Office, HM Treasury, HMCTS, and the Bank of England.
A month earlier, in May, FourNet was named one of the best tech and telecoms companies to work for in the UK, and one of the top 100 companies in the North West of England, in the Best Companies Survey 2021.
The MEN and EY’s top 50 list was compiled using the UK Government defined SIC codes for companies in the digital sector, as suggested by growth platform Tech Nation.
