Dublin-based tech startup Bizimply is delighted to announce that it is the winner of both of the top startup prizes at this year’s Web Summit! The company was awarded first prize in the 2015 ESB Spark of Genius Award on the Marketing Stage at midday, before being announced the overall winner of the Audi Pitch Competition on the main Centre Stage later in the afternoon on Thursday 5th November – the final day of the Web Summit.
This is the first time that the same company has won both of these accolades, marking Bizimply out as one of the world’s hottest tech startups.
Bizimply is a cloud-based software-as-a-service company, providing workforce management software to businesses with hourly paid employees. Bizimply was founded by Gerard Forde (Cork), Norman Hewson (Wicklow) and Mikey Cannon (Galway). The company’s suite of tools allows customers to manage their employee scheduling and time & attendance, all within one easy-to-use interface, reducing time spent by management on these tasks from hours to minutes, leaving these managers free to focus on growing their business out on the shop floor, rather than being stuck in an office working on admin.
Having come out of beta at the end of 2014, Bizimply is now used at hundreds of locations across 11 countries in restaurants, cafés, bars, hotels and retailers, as well as businesses in the childcare, manufacturing, beauty and healthcare sectors. The company is now set to scale, focusing on sales into the UK and US markets over the next 12-18 months.
