We’re thrilled to announce that we have ranked no. 15 in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 award for 2021! Again, after we finished 16th in the Fast 50 ranking of 2020. This means 24sessions is the 15th fastest growing technology company in The Netherlands.
We have received this recognition by Deloitte based on our revenue growing by +638% from 2017 to 2020. Deloitte’s annual ranking selects the country's 50 fastest growing technology companies on the basis of their revenue growth (in %) over the past 4 years.
Overall, the 50 technology companies nominated for Deloitte’s award achieved revenue growth ranging from 247% to 4846% between 2017 and the end of 2020. The median growth was 513%. 24sessions is included in Deloitte's list with a revenue growth of 638% between 2017 and 2020. At last year's award, we achieved a rank #16 with a growth percentage of 787% in the first 4 years after our founding, from 2016 through 2019.
Video customer engagement is growing fast, before & beyond the pandemic
Founded in 2015 by Rutger Teunissen and Konstantin Goncharuk, 24sessions offers a technology platform for video-first customer engagement.
With our premium video call technology we help large enterprises like SNS, Vattenfall, Rabobank and Aegon to make digital customer contact personal - with video calling, built-in appointment booking, co-browsing, document sharing, automated customer feedback and analytics. Early 2021, 24sessions was acquired by Messagebird, the world’s leader in omni-channel customer communications.
What’s interesting is that our revenue growth shows that video calling is not a temporary trend. 24sessions has achieved strong growth at a steady pace since its founding.
In last year's Deloitte Fast 50 award for 2020, our company achieved a similar rank and growth percentage. That growth was calculated until the end of 2019 only, so before the world was hit by the corona crisis and ensuing lockdown measures caused a big spike in video calls.
CEO & co-founder Rutger Teunissen about our company’s growth:
“Last year’s health crisis has accelerated digital transformation and the adoption of video calling for customer contact. However, our strong growth in revenue before and after the pandemic proves that video is here to stay. CX video calling has proven itself as a mature channel for digital Customer Engagement.”
