SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, 11 October 2023— National broadband provider Swoop has been named ‘One to Watch’ in the Australian Financial Review‘s 2023 Digital Transformation Leaders Awards.

The awards, presented in association with global consulting firm Boston Consulting Group, are designed to celebrate Australian companies that have successfully overhauled their technology stack and improved their digital operations.

A panel of BCG experts assessed more than 100 entries using the firm’s Digital Transformation Key Success Factors approach. The criteria judged included the commitment of leaders to change, how integrated the strategy is with the company’s digital goals, and how effectively technology changes are monitored.

The result was five winners, five leaders and four “Ones to Watch” across five industry categories.

Factors common to the awarded companies were top management support and funding for digital initiatives; a strong focus on hiring, retaining and developing personnel with technology skills; and the ongoing digitisation and automation of processes.

“We are very excited to announce that we have been named one of The Australian Financial Review’s Digital Transformation Leaders for 2023,” said David Michaels, Swoop’s Chief Revenue Officer.

“Under the Swoop identity, our shared vision guides us to prioritise effectively and adapt to an evolving landscape… By leaving past practices behind, we’ve shaped a common identity and culture that thrives on cooperative, flexible problem-solving, which has a clear roadmap endorsed by executive leadership.

“Our start-up vibe and empowering environment attract high-calibre talent known for their can-do attitude and out-of-the-box thinking. This energy fuels projects where innovative thinking has redefined operational efficiency and customer experience.”

Michaels affirms that Swoop will continue to push the limits of digital excellence in pursuit of the best broadband and nbn® service for customers around Australia. 

“This award reflects the fantastic year of results our team has delivered for FY23, and is a testament to the way our business has acquired and adopted digital technologies to drive productivity and innovation. And just as the award suggests, we’ll make sure we’re “One to Watch” in FY24.”
