    Strong performer’ zone placement comes after a boom period for the company.

    Nottingham, London, UK. 28th September 2020. Edays, the Nottingham-based global absence intelligence company, has been recognised by Fosway Group as a Strong Performer in the 2020 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Cloud HR.

    The placement (Edays’ first) comes after the company announced a growth of 32% in its FY20 revenues and the signing of several major partnerships including Coca-Cola.

    The Fosway 9-Grid™ is a five-dimensional model that can be used to understand the relative position of HR solutions and providers in the EMEA market. Solutions are assessed on five factors: performance, potential, market presence, the total cost of ownership (TCO), and future trajectory.

    The company, headed by CEO Steve Arnold, was also recently shortlisted in the Sunday Times Tech Track’s ‘One to Watch’ line-up for 2020.

    David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group, said: “Edays is an excellent addition to this year’s Fosway 9-Grid™ for Cloud HR. Its placement as a Strong Performer reflects its high level of market performance, as well as its positive impact on how businesses of all sizes manage their staff’s well being.”

    Steve Arnold added: “Being recognised by Fosway this year is testament to the hard work that the Edays team has invested in the face of extremely challenging global circumstances. Especially at this time, it’s more important than ever for companies to have access to robust and thorough absence intelligence; I’m hopeful that our Strong Performer status will be sparking further conversations about our solution down the line.”
