05 December 2013

Huddle, the cloud content collaboration supplier, has continued its award success as the company received the award for “Emerging Star of the Year” at the UK Tech Awards 2013. In addition, the company’s CEO Alastair Mitchell has been selected as one of Computer Weekly’s “Ten Rising Stars” at the publication’s CW Tech 50 Awards.

Huddle’s latest accolades follow on from a series of recent award wins. These include ‘Supplier of the Year’ at Computer Weekly’s European User Awards for Enterprise Software, Gold Stevie Award Winner in the Business / Government category, Bronze Stevie Winner in the Computer Services category, and the Markie award for “Metrics that Matter”. The company was also shortlisted as a finalist for the UK IT Industry Awards 2013 and the SuperNova Awards 2013.

“To win at the UK Tech Awards and then have Alastair named as one of Computer Weekly’s ten rising stars is a real honor and it’s great that all the hard work we’re doing at Huddle is being recognized by so many people,” says Chris Boorman, CMO, Huddle. “We’re transforming the way that people work, giving them technology needed to work effectively across departments, teams and organizations, rather than just within them. Huddle brings teams that are working together into one secure, central environment that can be accessed from any location, on any device.”

Founded in 2006, Huddle now has 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 Panasonic Europe, Grant Thornton, 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.
