Nuvias Group announces recognitions gained across 2016
Siphon, Wick Hill and Zycko, the three companies in Nuvias Group, a pan EMEA value distribution business, announced 2016 award wins.
Unified communications specialist Siphon, has been named the 24th fastest growing technology company in the UK, as part of Deloitte’s prestigious UK Technology Fast 50 rankings. Advanced networking specialist Zycko has won two channel awards from Lifesize, a global vendor of video conferencing technology. Zycko has been declared EMEA Distributor of the Year 2016 and EMEA Marketing Partner 2016.
Paul Eccleston, CEO of Nuvias, said: “These awards show a significant achievement for companies in the Group in 2016 and illustrate their commitment and ability to deliver excellence to channel partners. Although two of these awards are UK-based, the industry leading solutions and services that all companies in the Group provide are available to channel partners across EMEA.”
“In the last few months alone, for example, we have signed pan-EMEA contracts with Malwarebytes, Nokia and HID Global. The awards also justify the acquisition of all three companies into the Nuvias fold, as forward thinking organisations with a focus on innovation and technical excellence, as well as an ability to fulfil channel and vendor partner needs.”
Siphon, a unified communication solutions and technology integrator for the channel, has been named by Deloitte as the 24th fastest growing technology company in the UK. This is the second consecutive year that Siphon has been selected to be part of the prestigious Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50.
The Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 is a ranking of the UK’s 50 fastest growing technology companies. The rankings are all about growth and are a celebration of innovation and entrepreneurship. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over four-year period to May 2016, during which Siphon grew by 723%.
David Cobb, Lead Partner, Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 and Technology Fast 500 EMEA Programmes, commented: “Making the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 is a testament to a company’s commitment to technology. With its 723% growth rate over four years, Siphon has proven that its leadership has the vision and determination to grow in competitive conditions.”
Steve Harris, Managing Director of Siphon said: “It is an honour and privilege to find ourselves ranked once again in the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50. The high growth that this award acknowledges is indicative of the large and growing number of unified communications channel partners who look to us as their trusted technology partner across a wide range of cloud, Microsoft Skype for Business and, more recently, video and collaboration offerings.”
