We’re delighted to be recognized in Upscale 6.0 as the definitive solution for frontline workers globally. The events of the past 12 months have shown that organisations and the wider country cannot operate without frontline workers. For too long, these workers have been left out and left behind.

During Covid-19, it has seen increased adoption by clients in the health and care sector, in organisations such as the NHS, care homes, ambulance services, and private healthcare businesses.

Nolan concludes:

We’re on track to grow our revenues by 300% again this year, and we’re looking forward to learning from other fast growing companies, whilst continuing to support customers in empowering their frontline workers.
