As if landing a place on the Leeds Tech Climbers list wasn’t testament enough to our success, Vapour has also been identified as one of the region’s most forward-thinking companies in regards to digital innovation, transformation, and resilience.
Now in its third year of celebration, the Digital Enterprise Top 100 campaign seeks to encourage firms to embrace technology, develop their digital capabilities, and build more resilient infrastructure through the profiling of some of the industry’s trailblazers.
Since day one, Vapour has strived to engineer game-changing cloud technologies, and is always one step ahead to make sure we not only act as a real enabler of our own digital transformation success, but our customers’ too – whether that’s supercharging our toolkit with state-of-the-art Microsoft and SD-WAN solutions, or piloting an innovation forum with resounding success and getting the ball rolling on our net zero strategy. Of course, there’s plenty in the pipeline, too.
But it’s also our people that make a real difference, because just as much as our tech is exciting, the problem solving passion and technical experience across the breadth of our team is what truly drives digital innovation, transformation, and resilience.
In honouring the news to the Vapour collective, CEO Tim Mercer commented: “Quick wins don’t build relationships, so as a company we stay focused on our clients’ long game, and encourage our colleagues to do the same.
“They have been appointed because they are technically brilliant in their own field – whether that’s engineering, operations or sales. So, we give them the freedom to use their intelligence and apply ideas that deliver solutions beyond the obvious. They’re refreshingly tech-agnostic, and each ask the right questions to deliver the sharpest solutions to our customers – even if that means challenging the status quo in the process.”
Head of transformation and operations, Carol McGrotty, added: “We know we can use our tech to liberate businesses. But it’s often the people behind a project who act as a catalyst for change.
“Preparing well, involving employees at all levels in decision-making, and putting the customer at the forefront of ambitions doesn’t only preserve the longevity of digital transformation success, but upholds a sense of authenticity too.”
We couldn’t be prouder to have made the cut, and are delighted to mark the celebratory event on 16 June at Headrow House in Leeds amongst fellow delegates.
