Quill wins place in 2016 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 list
We’re delighted to announce that Quill has been awarded a place in the 2016 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 – a ranking of the UK’s fastest-growing technology companies.
Following wins in 2014 and 2015, Quill has once again made this prestigious list, which ranks technology companies according to their revenue growth over the past four years.
With a revenue growth rate of 407%, Quill won 43rd place in the rankings. Other prominent companies to make the list included luxury online fashion shopping platform and Quill client, Farfetch.
“Making the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 is a testament to a company’s commitment to technology,” said David Cobb, Deloitte’s technology partner for the London region. “With its 407% growth rate over four years, Quill has proven that its leadership has the vision and determination to grow in competitive conditions.”
Quill’s fast-paced, exponential growth has been driven by four years of investment in developing our proprietary Quill Cloud content production software, growing our global Network of specialist content creators and refining our in-house content creation methodology to maximise speed, efficiency and quality. Quill continues to use technology to remove the friction from creating high-quality, high-impact content, on a global scale.
The success of these efforts has been reflected in Quill’s emergence as the market-leading provider of high-performing, multi-language Primary Content at unparalleled speed and scale, supporting some of the world’s largest ecommerce companies, including Farfetch, Shop Direct, House of Fraser, Mothercare, Regus, Zalando and Virgin Holidays.
We have produced over 15 million words, as well as images and videos, in the past year alone – expanding our freelance network to include over 1,800 specialist written and visual content creators, spanning 34 languages – and rising.
Quill’s Founder & CEO Ed Bussey and COO Michael Houlihan attended the Fast 50 award ceremony on Thursday 17 November, held at the Montcalm Marble Arch, London. Speaking at the event, Ed commented:
“I’m thrilled that Quill has once again been ranked one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the UK. I’m confident that this rate of growth will accelerate as we move into 2017, with plans to expand the team, to replicate our UK successes overseas and to continue to optimise our multi-language content production processes.
I’d like to thank everyone on the incredibly talented Quill team – who have made all this possible with their unstoppable energy, as well as our investors, who have supported us on the journey and who share the same global ambitions for Quill as we do.”
