What kicked off at the Exponential-e Channel Charity Cup

A few weeks ahead of the Champion's League mania, we hosted our annual Channel Cup event, which saw nine teams competing in a 5-a-side football tournament at Crystal Palace's Selhurst Park homeground, all vying to be crowned the winner.

Would early favourites Silver Cloud (last year's champions) walk away with the trophy? How would the rivalry - now in its fourth year - between Sprout IT and Exponential-e's team play out? On the big day, Vonage, The Phone Co-Op, Sprout IT, Natilik, Silver Cloud, Net Premacy, and Blue Saffron all came together to 'channel' their inner Messi.

Natilik's No.10 Omar was the standout player on the day, scoring the most number of goals and coming inches away from hitting the bar in the Cross Bar Challenge. No mean feat from the halfway line into the wind! Silver Cloud came close to another place in the final, but their dreams were snatched away by Natilik.

Clearly enjoying the glorious sunshine, our Head of Channel Alp Kostem stepped up for the Cross Bar Challenge in his linen jacket and Ray-Bans, much to the amusement of the players. A valiant effort,but the general consensus was that he ought to stick to his day job. Once again, Exponential-e's own Eric Ascott took control of the microphone and nimbly guided everyone through the day with matchless witty banter. A weekend radio DJ gig should definitely be on his bucket-list.

In the end though, Vonage were crowned the winners, looking on course for a campaign to rival Liverpool's recent success. We look forward to seeing the team next year as they mount a defence of their title -- no doubt training's already well underway.

Each year we sponsor a different charity. This year, we chose Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), a globally renowned centre of excellence in child healthcare founded in 1852. Working with the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, GOSH forms the UK's only academic Biomedical Research Centre specialising in paediatrics. A clear reminder of how precious life is, we're tremendously proud to have raised £7,500 to help the organisation with their mission to fund research into children's healthcare and to finding new and better ways to treat childhood illnesses.

As the game ended, the Crystal Palace Hospitality Team did not disappoint. Hot showers, cold beer, and solid meal were provided after the tournament. Our Managing Director Mukesh Bavisi wrapped up the day by handing out the well-deserved awards to the teams and, more importantly, the presentation of the cheque to Amy from the amazing GOSH. For die-hards, the evening rolled on atWesthow House pub in Crystal Palace, recounting tales of their sporting prowess and dreaming of playing in the Premiership next Season. No doubt there were some sore limbs and heads the morning after, but it was all worth it for such a successful day.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen and for their generous donations to such an important cause. The amazing life-changing operations and treatments GOSH carries out every single day to children is just outstanding. We are delighted to be able to contribute to this and help the many GOSH children patients and their families. Till next year!

Exponential-e shoots up The Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100, fuelled by SD-DP and customer satisfaction


Today we are delighted to announce that Exponential-e has been listed at 46 in The Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100 - a rise of 43 places following our debut last year at 89. Our inclusion was driven largely by our work in Digital Transformation, offered through our industry-leading SD-DP, the benefits of which have been seen by a diverse range of customers. Another key factor behind our inclusion are the record-breaking numbers we've enjoyed for the financial year ending 31st January 2019. Currently, we are on track for £150m revenue, with no acquisitions or VC funding along our business journey.

The Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100 league table ranks Britain's top 100 private companies according to which has seen the fastest-growing profits over the last three years. Compiled by Fast Track, it's published as a supplement in The Sunday Times every April, with a national awards event held in June. This prestigious league table is a clear indicator of businesses that have developed and refined their offerings to grow at an economy-leading rate.

There's no doubt that the past year has been the best yet for Exponential-e, with our industry-leading SD-DP solving Digital Transformation concerns all over the UK and beyond. The SD-DP integrates core and edge computing, bonded with SD-WAN and SD-Data Centre, to form an underlying advanced network that enables data to flow freely yet securely between multiple clouds, from wherever it's stored through to the end user.

For those using the SD-DP, further improvements come from the Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC), launched last year, which monitors for compliance to multiple standards. The most recent technological development for the SD-DP is our Cloud Management Platform (CMP), which enables customers to manage their data and costs of multiple cloud environments through a 'single-pane-of-glass' view.

But what makes this so important right now? To start with, countless organisations in a range of sectors are currently seeking access to more bandwidth-hungry services. Compounding this are a range of new technologies demanding ever-increasing computing power, such as virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality (VR / AR / MR). The SD-DP offers customers fundamental access to real-time cloud performance and cost data, resulting in unprecedented levels of customer satisfaction - a pivotal driver of our place on The Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100.

At Exponential-e, we always put the customer first, an ethos reflected partly in our real-time NPS score. As such, we've been excited to announce new partnerships over the past year with a wide variety of industry-leading customers, including Virgin Atlantic, The Ritz, Guinness World Records, WWF, and the British Medical Association. We also laid the connectivity foundations for major companies in the US to broadcast the royal wedding when all our competitors said it would be unfeasible.

To be counted amongst the top 100 companies across the UK paving the way in terms of profit growth is testament to the services we provide and how our company's culture consistently looks forward.Connectivity is crucial for companies nationwide; at Exponential-e, we take pride not only in our technology but also in our expert consultancy. We strive to be visionary, constantly evolving and innovating in order to deliver the very best experience to our customers; we're therefore very much looking forward to celebrating our success in achieving these aims with The Sunday Times in June.
