Year Summary 2016


Wow. What a year 2016 was. And as it came to a close and we faced the dawn of 2017, it seemed apt to reflect on what has been, by any measure, a phenomenal year for Thoughtonomy.

Some of the key highlights include;

  • Recorded 300% growth in year on year license revenue in CY2016, and over 450% growth in contracted future license revenue
  • Added over 20 new colleagues to the team, bringing some of the best in the industry into the business, as well as creating opportunities for the brightest talent to take their first step in one of the most exciting industries in current times
  • Deployed Virtual Workforces into global locations across four continents, delivered solutions to direct clients in 16 countries and many more through strategic partnerships
  • Were honoured to achieve recognition by the NOA as Automation Champion of the Year
  • Signed global partnerships to bring automation to organisations across markets, territories and industries through outsourcers, integrators, service providers and specialist consultancies
  • We were awarded Global Sourcing Association European Project of the Year in recognition of our work with Computacenter’s NGSD program
  • Became the only Software as a Service RPA technology to be listed on Crown Commercial Services G-Cloud 8 Framework, allowing UK public sector organisations easy access to the platform via secure PSN and N3 networks
  • Achieved ISO 27001 Certification underpinning the security credentials of the Thoughtonomy Virtual Workforce platform
  • Our team trained and accredited over 400 automation practitioners
  • Rated by HfS as a High Performer and thought leader in the delivery of Intelligent Automation
  • Awarded GSA-UK Project of the Year, ahead of stiff competition from some of the largest organisations in the outsourcing market
  • Supported the transformation of businesses in a number of markets, allowing them to offer compelling new services and solutions based on digital labour
  • Helped clients create centres of excellence, creating roles for automation experts, consultants and executives as automation became a strategic imperative
  • Were recognised by CRN with the award of Emerging Vendor of the Year, from a shortlist of technology vendors spanning the global market
  • Added exciting new functionality and achieved industry leading RPA productivity
  • Rated by Everest Group as a Leader in their evaluation of RPA technologies across the market, with the most highly rated Vision and Capability among that group
  • Experimented, tested, evaluated and developed. Not everything worked, but those things that did will become part of the future of the platform, and for those that didn’t, fail fast and feedback without stigma became our mantra
  • Above all we learned. Every day, from every interaction, every project, every conversation. And as we learned, we shared and we grew, and we used learning as the fuel for that growth.


As 2016 ended, and we commenced on an exciting 2017, the next stage in the journey has already begun. Deployments are scheduled, new colleagues have joined from the first week of the year, new client projects have initiated, new investments have been planned. Our global expansion will accelerate, and our enablement programs will ensure our culture of collaboration and sharing continues to underpin our collective learning.

We think we are on the most exciting journey of our lives. If you’d like to be part of it, as a client, a partner or a member of the growing team, we’d love to hear from you

Wishing all of you a happy and prosperous 2017
