Case Study – CG Consultancy provides Switch Concepts with a suite of technology services.

The TechTrack100 company used a range of CG Consultancy’s services to withstand and manage its growing pains and create a solid foundation for the future

The Company

Switch Concepts is the very definition of a rapid growth technology company. They deliver over 1 billion internet ads per day and grew from nothing to £14.5m turnover in just five years and are on track for another 100% growth year. In two years, from 2011 to 2013, employee numbers rose from 4 to over 70. September 2013 saw them ranked 2nd in The Sunday Times TechTrack100 league of fastest growing technology companies.

The Problems

The sheer scale of growth created a number of needs.

CG Consultancy worked through each problem with Switch Concepts to discover and implement effective solutions.

The Solutions

CG Consultancy began work in early 2013 and change happened rapidly.

The Results

This was a large and challenging but ultimately rewarding project, and is an excellent example of the breadth and depth of services CG Consultancy are able to provide. Switch Concepts enthusiastically embraced and aggressively adopted both our immediate recommendations and medium-long term plans and the positive change has been rapid.

Importantly, Switch have not only solved existing problems, but prevented future ones and have plans in place to successfully deal with any unexpected events. The company’s growth continues, and the lightweight, agile processes we introduced have greatly boosted the team’s confidence and its ability to deliver against its product roadmap whilst maintaining strong quality control

“CG Consultancy have assisted on multiple fronts within the technology and operations arena of this fast growth digital advertising company. They have helped us rapidly scale our IT development, testing and system admin resource as well as providing onsite consultancy for strategic and tactical projects. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Chris and his team to any business that is experiencing growing pains, needs to professionalise or simply requires solid reliable advice, planning and industry best practice recommendations.”
