Luminous rocket into the top 100

The Luminous Group has rocketed into the top 100 tech companies in the north at the prestigious GP Bullhound 2022 Northern Tech Awards.

The 2022 rankings were confirmed at the Gala dinner in Manchester on Thursday 16th June.

Luminous came in at 37th out of the top 100 fastest growing tech companies, a great start for their debut at the awards. The Northern Tech Awards is built upon real data and Luminous showed a compound annual growth rate of 38%, a record for the company.

Over the last 12 months Luminous has seen turnover more than double, along with the team expanding from 20 to 31. This has been bolstered by the opening of their new Middle East office in Seef Bahrain and includes the employment of 2 Bahraini nationals.

CEO Ben Bennett commented “the last year has seen fantastic growth for Luminous as we mature our solutions and refine our immersive software platform.

Several large contract wins in the Middle East mean that the company is set to continue its upwards trajectory well into next year. For us the biggest task now is continuing to grow the team in an increasingly competitive market, where finding and acquiring top talent is challenging”

Luminous has spent the last 18 months building a suite of tools to make authoring XR training content faster, along with a cloud-based portal to support initiating and scheduling multiuser XR sessions in a variety of modes. These include guided learning, practice and assessment sessions.

As well as focusing on bespoke enterprise solutions for the oil and gas sector, the team are now also working on a range of configurable off the shelf XR training modules which will be available in 2023.
