BJSS one of only five UK companies tipped by Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track league

BJSS, an established IT consultancy and specialist agile development company, today announced it has been recognised as ‘one to watch’ by the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 League, which ranks Britain's fastest-growing unquoted technology companies, based on innovation and sales growth.

BJSS has experienced 30% compound growth through the last six years and reported an annual turnover of £42m million in 2011/2012. The company established in 1993 has 340 IT consultants deployed in offices in Leeds, Derby, Manchester and London was recently announced as the second most profitable SME in West Yorkshire, according to The Yorkshire Post.

Steve Langan, Managing Director of Hiscox UK and Ireland, the title sponsor of the league table, commented: "Just as London 2012 will inspire young athletes, so too should the stories behind these Tech Track companies inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs. Brainy, tenacious and above all hard working, these privately-owned businesses deserve every bit of recognition for their important contribution to our economy."

On BJSS’ sustained financial performance Mike Bates, its Managing Director, says: “2011 was another good year for us, with 2012 set to be even better. In addition to expanding our financial markets footprint, our enterprise agile methodology, high performance computing and delivery track record, is opening doors for us in government and retail.“

Bates continues, “Designing, implementing and delivering enterprise scale trading software projects is notoriously complex. Meeting these demanding requirements has allowed us to refine our enterprise agile development practices and expand our market offering in agile test and business analysis. We’ve 22 active clients right now, all of whom are either longstanding clients or have come to us via word of mouth, because we get it right first time, every time.”

The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 is compiled by Fast Track, the Oxford-based research, publishing and events company that tracks Britain’s most dynamic unquoted companies and has compiled league tables in The Sunday Times for the past sixteen years. Companies listed have excelled in terms of technical innovation and sales growth.
