This is the first time a company based on the Isle of Man has been placed first on the league table, which ranks Britain’s top 100 private tech companies with the fastest growing sales over the last three years. As well as being top of the league, plan.com also accomplished the highest sales rise figure in the last ten years.
Published on 9 September, the list recognised the Manx-based company for “helping 100,000 UK businesses to monitor their telecommunications usage in real-time”.
Plan.com sells through its network of 650 mobile partners across the UK, which helped grow sales an average 364% pa over three years to £35.4m in 2017.
Widely known in the industry as the champion’s league of tech firms, The Sunday Times Tech Track 100 league tables also features companies like TransferWise, Funding Circle and Farfetch.
plan.com co-founder Keith Curran said, “We’re absolutely delighted to top The Tech Track 100 amongst such a strong group of the UK’s tech-focussed businesses. It’s the combination of everything we’ve worked for over the past four years. Everybody at plan.com knows that we’re building something world-leading under Dan Craddock’s visionary leadership, and to have it validated by such a prestigious award is an incredible feeling.”
Plan.com is currently based on Hope Street in Douglas, The capital of the Isle of Man. The vast majority of its 100+ employees live on the island. The company is currently developing a “super HQ” on Victoria Road, which will be opened next year. The building will have seven floors and be ‘ultra-high tech’ in its infrastructure and vibe thanks to features such as its living walls, suspended meeting pods and roof-top bar.
Steve McGerr, head of direct commercial at one of the list sponsors, Hiscox Insurance UK, commented: “Tech businesses in Britain are thriving thanks to the fearlessness and determination of those that run them. We have great admiration for the talented entrepreneurs that make up the companies on this year’s Tech Track 100.”
