The Sydney- and Auckland-based independent Sling & Stone has won five new clients: HireVue, a hiring tool helping global enterprises secure talent via virtual interviewing and online assessments; PlaceOS, a tech platform enabling the creation of connected buildings and smart cities; Veyor, which is digitising the construction industry by enabling the smart management of logistics and compliance; Texthelp, a global education technology company helping learners of all abilities; and Symple Loans, personal loans company that connects Australian borrowers and investors.
"The only constant in our world is change, and it's happening faster than ever in society, the economy, and consumer behaviour," says James Hutchinson, global head of business at Sling & Stone.
"We're seeing the future emerge quickly in other areas that aren't yet getting as much attention — in the way we plan and build our cities, the way we interact with buildings, how we educate and hire, and how we deal with our finances. These futures are going to become a reality much quicker than anyone had imagined."
