Topia Earns Brandon Hall Award, Rides Wave of Momentum Into 2019 with Customer Wins, New Brand & Product Expansion

SAN FRANCISCO (December 18, 2018)—Global Mobility Management (GMM) company Topia is celebrating a 2018 marked by industry accolades, new product launches and a spate of customer wins as the company sits poised for accelerated growth in the new year.

Most recently, the company earned a Silver Brandon Hall Award for Excellence in Technology for its comprehensive, cloud-based mobility management platform. The award for Best Advance in Unique HR or Workforce Management Technology recognizes Topia’s automated approach to mobility that offers advanced tools for global talent management as well as employee-facing resources that ensure a seamless employee experience.

Rounding out a year of growth that included acquisition of Polaris Global Mobility and a corporate rebrand, Topia has launched a series of new solutions to help companies like Dell, Schneider Electric, Equinor, Axa, Arla Foods, Veolia and many more align their mobility and business growth strategies. Its newly added support for deferred compensation in Topia Plan and its Topia Go with new patent-pending technology for city-wide cost and commute calculator both offer unprecedented visibility into relocation decision-making for both employees and their organizations.

Topia’s aggressive innovation and growth are fueled by new insights from its 2018 Mobility in Focus study, which uncovered a striking talent-mobility disconnect: companies and their employees both recognize the value of mobility in driving business and career growth, but the processes currently in place often fall short in delivering on those opportunities. Topia’s solution combined with its Customer Success organization aim to solve that problem by providing the technology and services that streamline mobility, enabling companies to leverage a globally mobile workforce as a competitive differentiator.

“Our entire strategy and product roadmap are designed around providing the modern mobility tools and solutions that today’s agile companies need to meet their talent and business growth goals,” said Brynne Kennedy, Topia founder and CEO. “I’m extremely proud of the progress we’ve made this year in expanding our platform, and we’re energized and eager to help our customers work everywhere in 2019 and beyond.”

As more companies recognize the value of mobility as a business strategy, demand for Topia’s platform has grown in 2018 with over three dozen new, expanded and renewal customers in a wide range of industries, including financial services and consulting, energy, technology, pharmaceuticals and consumer packaged goods across North America, EMEA and APAC.

Topia’s unified GMM suite provides the most comprehensive solution to help companies create a “frictionless” mobility program that tears down barriers, drives business growth, supports talent acquisition and retention, and fosters diversity and inclusion. With centralized task management, automated workflows, built in mobility calculations, data analytics and accurate cost estimates and reporting, Topia enables more confident decision-making with greater efficiency and compliance.
