Awards & Progress

I’d like to reflect on some of our proud achievements in quarter one

  • KPMG Best British Mobile Start Up 2017– Runner up
  • Northern Tech 100 league table – 12th fastest growing tech business
  • Real Business Future 50 – Rated BigChange one of the most disruptive UK organisations in 2017

Four years ago, I founded BigChange with a vision to harness the benefits of a powerful, feature rich 3-in-1 Mobile Workforce Management platform that would be within reach of businesses of any size. We have combined back office CRM, Job Planning & Scheduling, a Rich Mobile App and Vehicle Tracking to help organisations go Paperless, making them more Efficient and Safer. As well as the UK, we have customers in Ireland, France, Spain, Finland, Norway, Australia and the USA.

Digitizing the customer journey

I owe a huge thanks to our customers who have worked with us along the journey. They are the catalyst of our rapid growth and have helped us shape our system. JobWatch has transformed productivity and profitability for our customers and is revolutionising the service experience for their own customers.


We look forward to welcoming you to the following exhibitions

  • Commercial Vehicle Show NEC Birmingham, 25th-27th April, Hall 4, Stand 4G61
  • Service Management Europe London Excel, 20th-22nd June, Stand M750

New Product Launches

During Quarter Two 2017 we will launch more applications and new features including workflow and process automation, collaboration between your company and your sub-contractor community (Job Sharing) and an on-demand service app; that our clients can deploy for their own customers. This will give every customer (no matter their size) the ability to have their own App in the iTunes or Google Play store for their customers (businesses or consumers) to book, track and manage their work in real-time with secure payment options. These developments are part of our vision to allow organisations to become even slicker and more efficient whilst improving the quality of service.

I’d like to wish you good health and lots business success in the future.

All the best
