AIM VCTs portfolio company story: The Panoply

Impactful digital transformation, responsibly delivered, at scale.

The Panoply is a group of businesses which focus on helping companies with digital transformation through technology. The group is a leading provider to UK public services, with 70% of its client base from this sector.

Helping local residents to secure and sustain good work

A recent example of how The Panoply support clients includes how they helped local residents in Camden to secure and sustain good work. Camden Council’s 2025 vision is that jobs will pay people what they need to earn to live and businesses will provide jobs flexible for modern lives. 

They developed a neighbourhood hub and job hub to extend the employment support available in Camden. Four ideas were presented to Camden Council on how they could improve employment outcomes for locals. One idea was free technology devices and transport to enable local residents to access the support they need and travel to employment opportunities.

What our fund managers say

“The Panoply finds itself on the crest of the digital transformation wave, something which the COVID-19 pandemic has driven because businesses needed to adapt. Its focus on the public sector gives it access to very large customer budgets, and projects which often span multiple years, providing excellent visibility of future revenues.”

Kate Tidbury, AIM VCT Fund Manager
