Babel Media, the leading games services company, has been listed as one of the 50 most important British mobile companies to watch in 2006. The list, sponsored by O2 and published in Real Business, picks out Britain's 50 most exciting and innovative companies in the mobile industry.
O2's 50 to Watch in Mobile, the first ever independently compiled list of its kind, is based on British companies who show strong growth and revenue generation, have a sound future and a certain je ne sais quoi, which sets them apart from their peers.
This highlights that Babel is one of the band of vibrant and innovative companies that are shaping the future of the mobile industry. 'With greater fragmentation, an explosion of handsets and a rapidly growing number of territories, management and deployment of content is one of the biggest challenges the industry faces. Babel is here to support its growth through the large range of services we offer', said Algy Williams, Managing Director at Babel Media.
Babel has won a number of prestigious awards over recent months. The company is listed in the Sunday Times FastTrack as one of the UK's 100 fastest growing private companies and has just won the Develop Award as the games industry's Best Outsourcing and Service Company for a record second time.
