Macclesfield based cloud computing firm Axon has once again been awarded a place on the Northern Tech 100 League Table – an awards programme produced by GP Bullhound in association with the government backed tech sector initiative, which celebrates the fastest growing and most promising tech companies in the North.
This achievement comes after a period of significant change and growth for the business, which is a Gold partner of industry giant – Microsoft.
Founded in 2001, Axon has successfully adapted to industry trends, putting itself ahead of the technology curve to provide customers with business aligned, end-to-end cloud computing solutions designed to mitigate risk and increase business performance – an achievement which has been recognised by Microsoft.
Since adopting a customer-centric cloud solutions business model, Axon has achieved a net profit increase of 57%, a Microsoft cloud revenue growth of 324% year on year and a customer retention rate of over 92%. Customer cloud adoption for the company has increased 40% and the firm is now ranked as one of the leading partners for Microsoft Office 365 consumption worldwide. Axon has also been highlighted for best practice marketing by Microsoft Corp. in the United States.
Rebecca Tuck, Partner Sales Executive for Microsoft commented; “Axon has consistently adapted its business model to incorporate the latest Microsoft technologies into its portfolio, restructuring & retraining employees to create a business benefit-led service offering that really addresses customer pain points, developing state of the art IT solutions that deliver real business value.”
The Northern Tech Awards recognise the fastest growing technology companies in the North to provide a unique way of celebrating the innovative technologies and businesses developed in the region, and those who have contributed to their success.
Graham Fern, technical director for Axon commented; “To rank on the same league table as some of the biggest technology players in the region is a great honour. We are incredibly proud of our hard working and dedicated team, without whom none of our recent success would be possible.
“The key to survive and thrive as a great technology partner is to consistently evolve. Nothing stands still in our world and neither must we.”
Axon uses the latest Microsoft technologies to pinpoint tangible business benefits. Looking at business objectives, the firm builds reliable and secure technology infrastructures that deliver best value and empower its customers to achieve more.
