One of only four: advo is a UK Data 50 company

advo Last night advo was recognised as a Data 50 company at an prestigious awards ceremony at the Montcalm hotel in London last night.

advo’s IT Director, Kevin Crew was one of only four UK financial services organisations that were recognised during the evening. Some of the UK’s largest and well-known employers including Network rail, Ocado, Royal Mail, The British Army, Boeing, Vodafone, Guardian and Yorkshire Building Society attended the evening.

The Data 50 Awards honour the people at the forefront of data – those transforming organisations and enhancing decision-making through its use, managing and controlling its proliferating growth, and driving new business value.

The black tie event was hosted by comedian and presenter Ian Moore with Brigadier Tim Carmichael, the British Army’s first Chief Data Officer, as guest speaker.

In reacting to the recognition at the Data 50 Awards Kevin Crew commented “I was both surprised and delighted to be recognised for the work we have been undertaking, especially given the wide ranging competition. Our advo online is quick and easy to use, saves time, looks good and makes the client experience better.”

The reasons why advo and Kevin Crew were inducted into the Data 50 listing were given as:

“Employee benefit specialist advo created in-house systems allowing slicker account administration and lower client fees. Kevin Crew is both architect and administrator of advo Online. Designed for companies up to 500 employees, advo Online was created for SMEs and small corporates, and has matured into a complete employee management and communication platform, allowing a shift from policy administration to a generator of sales.

In 2015 advo went live with a full flex-benefits platform, giving SMEs access to a unique benefit engagement technology previously the preserve of larger corporates. In April 2015, advo extended staff portals to incorporate full flexible-benefits. The current system is in its third generation with a fourth currently in construction that encompasses payroll and HR. Towards the end of 2015, advo moved away from product sales based around renewal dates to targeted technology appointments.”

advo has offered technology platforms since 2006 allowing effective multi-benefit management and easy access to staff benefits.
