Tech firm close to doubling turnover - again

Leeds telephony, internet and mobile firm The Technology Group is on track to double its revenue to £3.5m this year, after reporting a turnover of £1.8m for 2016, up from £995,000 the previous year.

Posting a fifth consecutive year of growth since the firm was founded in 2011, The Technology Group has also doubled its head count over the past twelve months, coinciding with a move to larger, ultra-modern new headquarters in Leeds, and is currently recruiting a number of staff nationwide within its installation, sales, and account management divisions.

Notable projects awarded in the last twelve months include a global roll out of a fully integrated VoIP telephony platform, with a single web-based portal for management across all 15 international sites for logistics firm, Ligentia.

The Technology Group has also secured a range of contracts combining business telephony, internet and mobile communications for UK clients including The NHS Leadership Academy, Oxford and Reading Colleges, Rugby School, and Leeds-based creative agency, Intermarketing.

Sales director Jonathan Marsden says, “It’s been a really exciting last 5 years for us. To come into the telecoms market as a new company, and grow so rapidly, is a testament to the team we have built and the key service and cost benefits we can provide over that of our competitors.

“At the heart of our success has been our company ethos and method of recruitment.  We wanted to be a company with the best experts and individuals in the technology market, and that meant going out and finding those shining stars in the industry, getting everyone behind our vision, and buying in to what we are trying to achieve in terms of high levels of personable service.

“The launch of our own private hosted VoIP platform was a key turning point 3 years ago, as we can provide features, and pricing which no other UK provider can match. As a smaller player in the industry we have so much more control now to deliver the best experience possible to our clients whereas many of our competitors often simply resell and rebadge someone else’s technology.

“By continuing to invest in the team, they will be able to support our ambitious expansion plans and ensure the business continues to thrive at the forefront of the industry.  Our next steps are to continue to grow our business with a gradual acquisition strategy to complement our existing organic growth.”
