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. It is used by 45,000 mobile workers and back-office personnel at over 1,400 organisations worldwide, primarily working in the construction, facilities management, field service, transport, logistics and waste management sectors.
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.”
