Trigold is rated a top 20 tech firm

Trigold is celebrating achieving 17th place in The Sunday Times’ Microsoft Tech Track 100 that rates Britain’s fastest growing technology companies.

The Tech Track 100 ranks the country’s private technology firms according to sales over two years, between 2002 and 2004.

Bill Safran, CEO of Trigold, says: “I am shocked and delighted that we obtained such a terrific ranking.

“We were flattered to be considered in the first place but I did not know where we would feature until I bought a copy of The Sunday Times.

“The fact we made it into the top 20 gives me tremendous pride in our product and staff.

“I would also stress that our success over recent years is thanks in no small measure to the support of all our customers including intermediaries, lenders, networks and insurance partners.”

Safran adds: “We have developed a range of products with their help over the past two years and work hard to maintain our founding principle – to use technology to make life easier for lenders and intermediaries.

“But we recognise we can’t rest on our laurels and will continue to develop products and systems that support our intermediary and lender customers in the years to come.”
