Cloudfind-Tagline-Banner_loBath-based cloud computing startup Cloudfind has been shortlisted alongside multinational technology firm Cisco and broadcaster Channel Four for the Computer Weekly European Awards for Enterprise Software 2014. Awards will be presented at the Cloud World Forum event at the Olympia National in London, on 17 June.

The Computer Weekly Awards are given in recognition of innovation through the use of enterprise software. This year, a panel of independent judges have nominated Cloudfind in the ‘Best Technology Innovation’ category.

Cloudfind was founded in 2010, and launched officially in April this year. The service offered by Cloudfind works in tandem with cloud storage apps like Google Drive and Dropbox, organising data in an efficient and effective way by using algorithms to ‘tag’ files, replacing the traditional method of folder storage. The result is a database of enterprise information automatically tagged according to factors like content, location and more.

cloudfindChief Marketing Officer for Cloudfind Robert Curran, who has worked in Bath’s tech scene for 25 years, told us Cloudfind is all about helping companies collaborate more effectively by making information easier to find, share and keep organised.

Cloudfind chose Bath as a city to work in thanks to its great connections to other major cities London and Bristol, as well as the pool of hi tech talent to draw on from universities in Bath, Bristol, Southampton and Exeter and the “quality of life” in a place which is “…small enough to be friendly and accessible, large enough to be lively.”

Cloudfind are understandably chuffed to be listed alongside household names in a prestigious shortlist and the potential to play on a world stage.  As Curran says: “With good connectivity, you can be anywhere. We’re fortunate our anywhere is somewhere so great!”
