AZoNetwork Nominated for Tech Company of the Year

AZoNetwork is proud to announce their nomination for Tech Company of the Year in the up to £5 million category, at the inaugural Prolific North Awards ceremony. The Prolific North Tech Awards celebrate and reward the very best tech companies, applications, deals, and entrepreneurs from across the North.

AZoNetwork was shortlisted by a judging panel of industry leaders and are due to compete in a rigorous decision process. This includes a judging meeting, where entries will be discussed and evaluated in detail to decide upon a winner.

Ian Birkby, CEO and founder of AZoNetwork, was delighted with the nomination:

“We’re very proud to have been shortlisted for the Prolific North Tech Awards. The Inbound Marketing Platform we’ve developed for Marketing Science is currently recording an annual 30%+ increase revenue with a great growth record that now extends to 31 quarters of year on year growth. We know that with 80 million visitors per year, the suite of websites are well known globally but we’ve often heard the comment, ‘you guys are a well-kept secret, glad I found you’.”

“Consequently, the oxygen of publicity provided by the Prolific North Tech Awards is very well received.” Ian continued by saying, “This shortlist recognition also reinforces the rationale of our Aussie parent company in deciding to relocate the business to the NEO building in Manchester in 2017. It’s yet another example of the vibrant digital, tech and science ecosystem in Manchester.”

A lot of the company’s success has come from listening to customers and investing heavily to provide solutions that meet the demands of the modern-day scientific marketing manager. Franky Barker, Marketing Manager at AZoNetwork, commented on some of these areas.

“We receive increasingly positive feedback about AZoIntel, our Analytics tool which allows clients to fully understand who’s engaging with their content and why – effectively allowing them to put the Science into their Marketing activities.”

“The further development of the technology infrastructure underpinning the platform has seen a significant uptake of clients realising the value of integrating AZoNetwork with their own Martech stack.”

The Prolific North Tech Awards will be presented at a gala dinner and ceremony at The Midland Hotel in Manchester on Wednesday 8th May 2019 as part of Tech Show North.
