Welsh tech firm picks up three awards on same night

Welsh tech firm Vizolution recently enjoyed an evening of triple celebration after picking up two awards in London and one in Glasgow on Nov 15th.

The Swansea-based company, which develops customer experience technology, received the Highly Commended award in the ‘Best Use of Technology – Non-Lenders’ category at the Mortgage Finance Gazette Awards in London for its completely paperless mortgage process

It also won the Best CX Transformation Through Technology Partnership category at the CCA awards in Glasgow for developing a live-sharing solution as part of O2’s renewal and retention journey.

What’s more, on the same night, it was named the 40th fastest-growing UK technology company on the Deloitte Fast 50 List. This comes a month after it ranked in the top 20 of the Wales Fast Growth 50.

Bill Safran, CEO of Vizolution said: “Our technology is truly transformative, for both business operations and customer experience, so to receive awards that recognise the hard work that we do, and the value we bring to our customers, is very satisfying.

“We have enjoyed a particularly important year, recently receiving £10m in investment from Santander, RBS and HSBC, meaning that three of the world’s largest banks are now shareholders in Vizolution.

“We will continue our growth trajectory in the coming years by focusing on extending our global footprint, especially in North and South America, and by adding new products to our suite of innovative solutions.”

Las week, Vizolution announced it had closed a £10 million investment round backed by Santander Consumer Finance, the Royal Bank of Scotland and HSBC.

Working across the financial services, insurance, energy and telecoms sectors, Vizolution streamlines complex customer processes for a range of businesses. It’ll use the new funds to expand its product range and push into new markets.

Safran added: “We are delighted that our customers Santander Consumer Finance and RBS have joined HSBC as shareholders in Vizolution.

“This investment is a testament to the innovation and capability of our technology. Together, we will be able to create the very best possible solutions for our clients’ customers.”
