Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track Success – Some Thoughts on Growth
Recently we were honoured to be included in the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 – at number 30! It was our first time on the list, so we’re obviously thrilled to be so high up. The list showcases the UK tech companies with the fastest growing sales over the last 3 years, and we’re up there with some great and inspiring businesses.
We were included in the list because our in-house technology enables everything we do and has given us the capacity and ability to grow hugely over the past 3 years. We’ve recruited an amazing tech team who’ve been invaluable in identifying areas for improvement and creating a really slick system for handling applications, delivering decisions and analysing information in more depth.
I feel like I spend a lot of time talking about our growth, but it is such a big, overwhelming and exciting aspect of life here at Car Loan 4U. It wasn’t that long ago that we had under 100 partners, and we had just one room on one floor of our offices. Now we’ve taken over 2 whole floors, and we’re bursting at the seams!
As fun as it is bringing so many new people into our family, it takes effort to make sure that everything we’ve worked for over the years is upheld by all the new people, and that we uphold our end of the deal by giving them a great place to work. Everything has to be able to sustain growth and needs “scalability”, from our offices, to tech systems, to managers. This will be my main area of focus in the near future – figuring out how to maintain our high standards of service and keep our culture fun and positive.
