Northern Tech Map - GP Bullhound

GP Bullhound recognises Intechnica’s growth on new Northern Tech Map

Intechnica is on the map of growing tech businesses in the North, according to leading independent advisory firm GP Bullhound.

Intechnica is featured in GP Bullhound’s newly launched Northern Tech Map, an interactive tool pulling data from years of research into the growing northern tech movement.

This follows on from Intechnica being named as one of GP Bullhound’s top 50 fastest growing tech businesses in the Northern Tech Awards 2016, alongside businesses like Skyscanner, Metronet, TyreOnTheDrive and TheLADBible.

This has been bolstered by the growth of Intechnica’s TrafficDefender SaaS solution, which has helped clients such as AO World and JD Williams ensure their websites remain online during their busiest sales peaks, as well as Intechnica’s professional services around performance and development.

Intechnica has also become a trusted advisor for businesses during mergers and acquisitions via expert IT due diligence services, working on valuations worth hundreds of millions of pounds.

Gritty performance at the Great Manchester Run from Intechnica team

Well done to the nine members of the Intechnica team who successfully completed the 10k Great Manchester Run yesterday. Despite the heat and the headwind, they all worked incredibly hard and managed a mean average time of 55 minutes.

After weeks of office banter, ranging from modesty around running ability to out-and-out claims of superior athletic prowess (much more of the former), it was Nathan who ultimately finished at the front of the pack with an impressive time of 50:48. I’m sure next year they’ll all be pushing to beat his time!

But it really was more about the taking part, as proven by the total of £350 raised on the team’s Just Giving page for local charity Forever Manchester. An amazing result, which you can still add to via their donation page.
