BigChange, the Field Service Management software provider, has been presented with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, one of the highest official honours for companies in the UK. HRH The Prince of Wales presented BigChange’s Chairman and founder Martin Port with the Award for Innovation in a ceremony at Windsor Castle yesterday evening. 

The firm was recognised for its groundbreaking job management platform, which is now used by almost 1,700 organisations worldwide to manage their field service operations.

Martin Port, BigChange Chairman, comments:

BigChange won the award in the ‘Companies turning over between £10m and £50m’ category less than a decade after it was founded to revolutionise the field service management sector.

The award recognised a period of significant progress for BigChange, particularly in the face of Covid, and the contribution its technology has made to strong growth at field service businesses.

BigChange has created over 100 jobs since the end of 2019 and was ranked recently among the UK’s top employers, receiving two stars in the Sunday Times ‘Best Companies To Work For’.

In 2020 the company was awarded a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for its cutting-edge technology. Earlier this year it secured a £75 million investment from private equity firm Great Hill Partners to fund further innovation and international expansion.

BigChange has experienced 50% annual average growth since inception and is now trusted by almost 1,700 field-based organisations in sectors such as maintenance, construction and environmental services to strengthen their finances, operations and reputations.

BigChange has been recognised as one of the north’s fastest-growing technology companies by this year’s GPBullhound Northern Tech Awards.

We have reached the last 15 of the Fastest Growing Larger Companies, and our final ranking will be revealed at the Leeds awards ceremony on November 9.

BigChange continues to achieve award success, landing a hat-trick of nominations at this year’s prestigious Yorkshire Post Business Excellence Awards.

We are delighted that our contribution to digital transformation, business growth and operational excellence has seen us named among the top businesses in Britain in these very prestigious national business awards.”

Event Director of The Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards (BBEA), Sarah Austin said:

Becoming a finalist is a very impressive accolade; all our finalists stood out as truly creative and innovative during a turbulent year for British businesses; they have proven their companies to be resilient, entrepreneurial and really are best of class.”

That is fundamentally the right thing to do and it also makes us more successful. I’m incredibly proud that our employee engagement has been recognised as Outstanding. It shows how far we’ve come towards achieving our mission. And it shows what a strong position we’re in for a future of exciting growth driven by excellent people.”

Martin Port, Founder and CEO

Leeds, 24 November 2020 – BigChange and Sheffield City Council were highly commended at the Local Government Chronicle Awards last month for our partnership transforming the delivery of special educational needs (SEN) transport in Sheffield.


 BigChange, the mobile workforce management technology company, is delighted to be included in the Sunday Times Sage Tech Track 100 league table of the UK’s fastest growing technology, media and telecoms companies for the third year in succession.

BigChange, which has featured among TechTrack’s top 100 companies every year since 2018, was the second fastest growing company from Yorkshire and the seventh in the North of England. It was recognised for achieving average sales growth of 62 percent per annum over the last three years.

Martin Port, founder and CEO of BigChange, comments:

“In just over seven years in business BigChange has transformed the industry in which it operates, and made high-end mobile workforce management tools available to organisations of all sizes. Our inclusion among the UK’s fastest growing technology companies for the third year in a row is testament to the power and scalability of our technology, and the dedication of the BigChange team.”

BigChange’s pioneering mobile workforce and job management solution, JobWatch, provides organisations of any size with a paperless means of planning, managing, scheduling, and tracking their mobile workforce operations.

BigChange, the mobile workforce management technology company, is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise, one of the highest official honours for companies in the UK.

BigChange was recognised in the 2020 Innovation category for developing JobWatch, a mobile workforce management system that connects back office staff, mobile workers and customers, enabling users to automate manual processes, reduce paper usage and facilitate collaboration on the go.

When it launched in 2013, JobWatch was delivered as a cloud-based service and sold on a per-user basis. This reduced the cost and complexity of introducing the technology and made high-end mobile workforce tools accessible to organisations of all sizes for the first time. It is now used by 45,000 mobile workers and back-office personnel at 1,300 organisations globally.

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise celebrates businesses who excel at international trade, innovation or sustainable development. BigChange, which employs 167 people, will receive its award at a Buckingham Palace reception later this year.

Martin Port, founder and CEO of BigChange, commented:

“We are delighted to win such a prestigious award. This recognises the efforts of our people who have worked so hard to develop and deliver JobWatch, as well as the customers that inspire and use it everyday to grow and transform their own industries. We have global ambitions for BigChange and this honour will open doors for us around the world.”

BigChange users on the benefits of JobWatch innovation

Daniel Long, Managing Director of Clearabee, commented:

“We’ve worked with BigChange since the early days of Clearabee, and it remains a critical pillar in our technology strategy. BigChange is integrated into all parts of our business and saves us a tremendous amount of time. What we like most about the JobWatch platform is its versatility. BigChange continues to add new features and new functionality. It is continuously innovating and adding to the system.”

Michael Taylor, CEO of Contego Environmental Services, comments:

“Contego started life in 2004 as a one-man-band specialising in bird control and has grown to become one of the largest national pest control businesses in the UK. BigChange has ensured our operations could keep up with that level of growth. We’ve used BigChange for several years now, and it has transformed our business. It gives us complete visibility of our operations and allows us to manage our national workforce centrally from our base in County Durham.”

BigChange, the mobile workforce technology company, has been included in the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 league table, which ranks Britain’s private technology, media and telecoms (TMT) companies with the fastest-growing sales, for the second year in succession.

The Leeds-based company, which entered the league table for the first time in 2018, was named in the Sunday Times as the third fastest growing private technology company in Yorkshire and 59th in the UK overall, with annual sales growth of 77 percent over the last three years.

Martin Port, founder and CEO of BigChange, comments:

“BigChange has a great growth story and we are delighted to be named as one of the fastest growing UK technology businesses for the second year running.”

We’ve created 120 high value jobs here in Leeds, we’ve recruited a great team and we are continuing to grow quickly through new product innovation, geographical expansion and strategic acquisitions.”
