Telecom service provider Unicom, which specialises in business-to-business connections, is celebrating this week as the company has been shortlisted for this September’s Sunday Times list of the UK’s fastest growing tech companies by turnover growth over a three year period.
This will be Unicom’s 2nd time in the Tech Track 100 ranking having already been ranked in 2007 as well as two previous rankings in the Sunday Times Profit Track and one in the Sunday Times Fast Track.
“Some companies may enjoy growth in terms of either profit or turnover, but it is unusual for companies to enjoy sustained growth in both profits and turnover at the same time – especially in today’s economic climate,” said Chris Earle, Operations Director, Unicom.
“Unicom was one of only three companies nationwide to feature in the Sunday Times Top 100 for both profit growth and turnover growth during 2006 – and we appeared in both the Profit Track and Tech Track tables in 2007. Its great to be short listed for 2008.”
Unicom has 70,000 business customers, primarily small or owner-managed businesses with telephone bills of approximately £1,000 a year. The specialised nature of the telephony and broadband products offered by Unicom provides significant savings for its business users.
“We’ve not actually had a price increase since we started offering our telecom services in 2001,” said Chris Earle.
“We use BT’s infrastructure and network, so beyond the occasional glitches any provider can expect, our service is as robust as they come.
“We concentrate our efforts on improving our customer service to differentiate ourselves in a sector that doesn’t have the best reputation for service.”
