two-quotes-white

We brought on Orlo because it matched our culture of building machines for our managers to use, to deliver great experiences to customers.

Tim Howard - Head of Marketing and Central Operations - The Deltic Group

Orlo is key to our strategy – not only does it help staff allocate messages to the right teams or police officers, but it also offers an audit trail, so we can monitor what content is going out and when, as well as, control which staff members have access to which accounts.

Our story so far

Born in Brum

Armed with no more than a laptop, an office under the stairs and big dreams, Ben Nimmo, Founder & CTO, spotted a gap in the market and created the platform that was to become Orlo. Five months after the first line of code was written version one was released!

#TeamOrlo started to grow

The University of Birmingham was the first organisation to trial the Orlo platform, closely followed by our first ever paying customer - Boehringer Ingelheim, the pharmaceutical company. As our customer base began to quickly grow, we hired our first Marketing, Sales and Support team members.

We were #winning

Our first award! We won ‘Digital Customer Service Team of the Year’ at the UK Contact Centre Awards for our work with National Express. 

2016

2018

The start of a new era

Not only did we undergo a brand overhaul (some of you might remember us as SocialSignIn pre-2018!) but our tech took a huge step forward too. We became the first platform to manage digital conversations with social media, live chat and CRM integration capabilities. 

We scored a hat trick

For the first time, based on user reviews, we were recognised as a 'High Performer' in G2 Crowd's Summer Report. Then again in Autumn. And for a third time in Winter!

2019

2020

We made some new friends

After the successful development of our deep integration with Microsoft Dynamics 365, we thought it was about time we joined forces, so we became a Microsoft ISV Connect Premium Partner!
