London, UK (PRWEB UK) 15 November 2013
Ciklum, a leading Danish software development company and a headline sponsor of this year’s Deloitte Fast 50 UK programme, is pleased to congratulate the winners of an independent ranking of the UK’s fastest growing technology companies, who were announced at last night’s ceremony. The awards, now in their sixteenth year, recognize and rank technology companies with an exceptional growth in turnover over the last five years.
For Ciklum the event provided the opportunity to celebrate the success of its software development partner JUST EAT Group, the world's leading online takeaway ordering service, that has been named in the Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50™ top list. JUST EAT Group got listed in the ranking with average revenue growth of 976 per cent.
It is a privilege for us to work with such an inspiring client and it is even more rewarding to congratulate its team on yet another significant milestone achievement. We at Ciklum wish JUST EAT Group and other winners continued success in the years to come.
Craig Wilson, Ciklum Managing Director US, UK & Ireland, said:
“We congratulate Just Eat and all the other winners on their continued innovation and growth. It is a pleasure to be part of the Deloitte Fast 50™ in 2013, as it is completely part of our company ethos to support technology companies globally in achieving their growth. Ciklum prides itself on being a strategic partner to high growth technology companies and we continue to support and help their development. Having personally been involved in the Just Eat journey in Ciklum, I wish them continued success into 2014 and beyond.”
David Halstead, Deloitte partner leading the UK Fast 50, said:
”Britain’s technology companies have faced a challenging five years, even though the winners have grown significantly faster than the economy over the past five years, but they cannot, and do not, operate in isolation. In line with the wider economy, the entrants reveal a challenging five-year period, but with a bright outlook. We have seen an increase in software companies from 13 to 16. Internet companies are second with 12 in this year’s ranking, compared to 13 in 2012.”
The 50 fastest growing UK tech companies generated over £672 million in total annual revenues, provide jobs for over 5,000 people and recorded an average five-year growth rate of 1382 per cent in the year 2012/13, according to the Deloitte Technology Fast 50.
