In the seventh edition of the Grant Thornton India meets Britain Tracker 2020, WHISHWORKS was listed among the top 15 of the fastest growing Indian companies in the UK. Making its India meets Britain Tracker debut, the company was qualified based on its year-on-year percentage revenue growth.
During the last financial year WHISHWORKS accelerated its growth trajectory, as evidenced by the launch of its US operation, the commitment to two new key partnerships with Salesforce and Confluent, and the acquisition by NIIT Technologies. These developments, together with a significant investment in expanding its commercial teams with expert talent, are expected to drive the company’s continued growth through this year’s slowing economy and into the next couple of years.
Suman Konkumalla, Chief Strategy Officer of WHISHWORKS, said: “WHISHWORKS’ ranking in Grant Thornton’s India meets Britain Tracker 2020 illustrates the continued development of our business not only in the UK but also globally. We work closely with some of the most innovative technology brands in the digital transformation arena, and they are clear that they need us to enable their customers to accelerate time-to-value. Our breadth of capability, talent and geographic reach gives us a unique appeal to clients, and we are grateful for their support in helping us to reach this important milestone.”
