Zeel Solutions aiming for European glory

A WOLVERHAMPTON technology specialist has capped a record year by winning a European award for its innovative work.

Zeel Solutions beat off competition from hundreds of companies to take the ‘Innovation’ title at the European Business Awards.

The company, which provides automated solutions for Recruitment Process Outsourcing, Vendor Management services and Travel and Subsistence arrangements, impressed judges with its ability to bring a host of new solutions to market.

The award comes as the firm saw year-on-year growth and the creation of 10 new high value jobs.

The business has also been praised for its work with the NHS in helping it manage the recruitment of temporary staff through its bespoke ‘Zrecruiter’ platform.

Rav Cheema, managing director and founder of the business, said: “This is a fantastic honour for our company and, importantly, recognises the outstanding contribution our staff have played in taking us from a start-up in 2007 to a market leader in 2013.

“We were up against some massive companies in a vast array of sectors, so to come through that test underlines the difference our solutions are making to the recruitment sector.”

Established in 2007, Zeel Solutions is one of the UK’s fastest growing tech start-ups, combining the latest technology with industry experience. It targets recruitment agencies by offering them cost, control and compliance solutions when managing temporary or permanent staff.

The company, which employs 23 staff and is on course for a record £1.6m turnover this year, has developed a blue chip client base that sees it operate within logistics, distribution, manufacturing, retail and the public sector.

Zeel will now go on to represent the UK and compete against 30 other countries for the Ruben d’Honneur trophy.

Since 2007 the European Business Awards has recognised success, innovation and ethics in the European business community.

In 2011 the EBAs engaged with more than 15,000 organisations in over 30 countries, with participants representing a combined turnover above €1 trillion (8.23% of EU GDP) and employing in excess of 2.7 million people.
