Sunday Times Techtrack 100 features Timico for 4th year running

The 2010 Sunday Times Techtrack 100 came out yesterday featuring Timico for the fourth year running. The Techtrack is really the domain of young small companies that can easily demonstrate high compound annual growth. Six years into the game Timico is really no longer a startup and each year it is going to become harder to maintain the rates of growth.

Having said that it is always nice to be recognised and this is our fourth year in the Table so we must be doing something right. (Good 🙂 )

Trefor.net first anniversary

Just like the Queen has two birthdays, “official” and “actual”, I realised over the weekend that so do I.  “Blog” and “actual” :-).

My first blog post went out on Monday May 19th one year ago.  Since then I have written over 330 posts and had around 70,000 visits.

The year gone by has also been a successful one in business as Timico attained 4th place in the Sunday Times/Microsoft Techtrack listing and was winner of the ITSPA Best Unified Solution Award.

Trefor.net is still very much small beer in internet terms but we all have our own little worlds to live in and this is mine. It is an exciting place to be .

PS my actual birthday is the same as Donny Osmond’s! I’ll leave it to you to track down if you need to know it badly enough. I’m younger than him though 🙂

The Long And The Short Of IT – Or IT Isn't All About Size

In some respects Timico is punching above its weight but our philosophy is to reach for the stars, which might be why we were 4th in the Sunday Times Techtrack last year.

The long and the short of it a company is only as good as its people. Michelle Sharp is Director of Customer Services at Timico. Gareth Bryan is a Technical Solutions engineer and is often out and about on customer sites. Both are pictured below.  You need to scroll down below the photo to appreciate that all is not what it seems.

Using the ruler (30 cms or 1 foot) in the photo as a reference there is a prize for guessing the size difference between the two.  Bonus points for getting their actual heights right. (Timico staff need not apply 🙂 )

4th Fastest Growing Technology Company

It’s not often that reading the Sunday Times gives me a thrill. It did today because I came across the Techtrack 100 supplement and discovered that Timico is now rated as the fourth fastest growing business in the table.

Last year we ranked tenth which we felt was quite an achievement. This year I had forgotten all about it so the surprise is doubly pleasant.

This is an exciting time to be around in the communications industry. Lots happening. Lots of change. Companies have to be nimble to succeed and I think Timico is fortunate to have people with the talent to make things happen.

Watch this space!
