UP3’s 20 Highlights of 2020

There’s no doubt that 2020 has been a very challenging year but in the spirit of looking for the positives and finding things to be grateful for we wanted to share a few things that have made us very proud of our fantastic team, customers and partners.

Here’s our 20 for 2020:

  1. UP3 achieved ServiceNow Elite Partner status along with our sister company AP3 – www.ap3.co.uk which also became a Built on Now partner. Find out more here

  5. We acquired an expert Technical Director, Justin Loftas – read the announcement here

  14. We highlighted the strength of women in STEM with hints & tips around breaking into the technology sector with our guru Poonam Chaudhary – if you missed her insights you can find them here

  16. We recognized that the small things can make a big difference when it comes to employee well-being. Our lives were brightened with flowers, afternoon tea and Lumie energy lights when we most needed a pick me up
  17. Ben inadvertently wore a Zoom lipstick filter on all his Zoom calls for a week until Russ showed him how to operate the filters properly
  18. We celebrated Christmas with a virtual UP3 cocktail party – even managing to make all the cocktails ourselves

  20. The UP3 team has finished the year happy & healthy – which is the best highlight for all of us

With these highlights to look back on, we want to say a huge thank and congratulations to everyone involved and ask you: what positive things have you achieved this year? No matter how big or small, it’s time to reflect and be grateful for the good things that have happened, even during a very challenging year like this.
