20 September 2013

Huddle has been named a finalist for both the UK IT Industry Awards 2013 and the SuperNova Awards 2013. The nominations continue Huddle’s accolade success as the company recently received the award for ‘Supplier of the Year’ at Computer Weekly’s European User Awards for Enterprise Software. In addition, Huddle has also been honored in the 2013 International Business Awards as a Gold Stevie Award Winner in the Business / Government category and a Bronze Stevie Winner in the Computer Services category. Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 250 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process this year.

“It’s fantastic that the work we’re doing has been recognized by so many different parties and a great honor to be shortlisted and named finalists for these awards,” says Alastair Mitchell, CEO, Huddle. “The majority of collaboration in the workplace is now done across departments, teams and organizations, rather than within them. Huddle brings teams that are working together into one secure, central environment that can be accessed from any location, on any device.”

Since it was founded in 2006, Huddle has grown to around 200 people, with offices in London, San Francisco, New York and Washington. It was co-founded by Alastair Mitchell and Andy McLoughlin when they became frustrated with the existing enterprise technology’s inability to help people work together. Through their leadership, Huddle has raised in excess of $40 million in funding and is now used by more than 100,000 enterprise and government organizations worldwide. Globally recognized brands such as SEGA, P&G, Kia Motors and Unilever, as well as 80% of central UK government departments, use Huddle to share and work on content with teams inside and outside of their organizations.

Huddle’s next generation content collaboration platform was developed to tackle key problems in the enterprise: security being compromised, content overwhelming enterprise, legacy software failing to cope, leading to failed deployments and making it difficult to work together.

Huddle brings together content management, task management, social discussions and activity streams together in one place. Being cloud-based, it works across the firewall and cross-platform, giving teams the ability to work from anywhere on any device, with peace of mind that their data is secure. Huddle is a core component in the workplace of the future.
