Winners of the prestigious Deloitte Technology Fast 50 2020 awards were announced last night in Dublin, and Webio are delighted to announce that we ranked number 2! Needless to say, we are delighted with this achievement, which for the team was a bit of a bolt out of the blue to achieve such a high ranking.
This award program recognises the fastest-growing technology companies in Ireland and is based on the percentage of operational revenue growth over a four-year period. With revenue growth of 2,794%, Webio became one of 3 new entrants to make it into the top 3.
Webio’s CEO, Cormac O’Neill credits the team's commitment and passion for delivering an award-winning product that positively impacts the lives of clients and their customers. He said, "the world will not be the same post COVID-19. Digital transformation has accelerated, and conversational engagement has become central to just being there for your customers. We really do love this journey we are on with our customers, working hand in hand with them to ensure that even the most difficult of customer conversations are had with empathy and understanding.
A big thank you goes to all the Webio team, without whom we would not be here today. I would also like to thank David and all the team at Deloitte Technology Fast 50, it's only when you see the calibre of the companies in the top 50 that you realise what a great award this is.”
Thank you to all our customers and partners who have trusted Webio and leveraged our conversational technology within Ireland, the UK, Europe and soon to be the US. This achievement would not have been possible without them.
