Appen was named a finalist in the technology category of the 2014 Australian Growth Company of the Year Awards held October 16, 2014. Fellow category finalists were Health.com.au Pty Ltd, AussieCommerce Group, and Redbubble Pty Ltd.

The submissions were assessed by an independent judging panel and the awards recognise the achievements of the country’s fastest growing businesses in the mid-market.

Head of the Corporate Group at Sparke Helmore, Nick Humphrey, said: ‘I was impressed by the quality of the submissions this year. They definitely show that Australian businesses in the mid-market space are growing, innovative and sustainable. It was very hard for the judging panel to decide the finalists, who are fantastic examples of the qualities these awards celebrate. We congratulate the finalists and wish them the best of luck for the awards night.’

Dropbox Publishes Case Study Featuring Appen

Appen is proud to have been recently featured in a case study published by Dropbox, entitled “Appen Revolutionizes Language Technology With Help From Dropbox for Business.”

Following is an excerpt:

“No matter where Appen staff members are stationed around the world, or what devices they use, Dropbox for Business keeps them connected. Norris says, “Dropbox for Business is so reliably robust. I’ve been in the technology industry since the 1990s, and it’s startling to find a product that claims to do these things and then really does just work.”

Even when Appen employees are in locations with slow — or no — Internet access, Dropbox sync doesn’t falter. Auto-resuming transfer technology ensures that files get fully synced. As Norris explains, “When the Internet connection goes down and comes back up, Dropbox notices and just resumes syncing right where it left off.”
