Based on its recent analysis of the global digital product development services market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes 3Pillar Global (3Pillar) with the 2020 Global Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award. Combining its software and data engineering expertise across mobile, cloud, and disruptive technologies with specialized product strategy and management services, 3Pillar equips clients to grow their revenue streams. It also adopts an aggressive acquisition strategy that endows it with various capabilities and adds depth to its service offering.
Fundamental to 3Pillar’s success is its unique product mindset, leveraged by fully integrated cross-functional teams in processes ranging from ideation to ongoing evolution and operations. Over the last year, 3Pillar increased its output to 200 active products, delivered by 125 product teams, and 1,600 product professionals. The company aligns its solutions with multiple stakeholders’ goals, from the product manager and product owner to the executive team, to address issues such as skilled workforce shortages, technology alignment, employee roadblocks, and organizational structure.
“While 3Pillar has consistently reported year-over-year revenue growth of around 20%, its recent investment partnership with CIP Capital, a New York-based private equity firm, has providedan added boost,” said Brent Iadarola, Vice President at Frost & Sullivan. “Similarly, its strategic acquisition of Isthmus Software, an innovative software development firm, enables expanded delivery capabilities across the US, India, and Romania. Isthmus’ unique engineering and development capabilities supplement 3Pillar’s dynamic team of innovation strategists to enhance the diversity of its offerings.”
With these expanded capabilities, 3Pillar optimizes product outcomes. Following its success with information-rich companies such as Fortune and Carfax, 3Pillar has extended its reach to the consumer retail sector. Apart from Tommy Hilfiger, an existing client, brands such as Walmart and L.L. Bean were a part of the Isthmus acquisition. Since launching this initiative in January 2020, the company has seen tremendous growth as retail organizations transition from traditional companies to digital leaders.
“As it expands its geographic presence and strengthens its global delivery capabilities, the company amplifies its industry focus to create more value and advance business outcomes for clients across multiple sectors,” noted Riana Barnard, Best Practices Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “A purpose-led mindset inspires 3Pillar Global teams to make disciplined strategic choices, implement best practices, and build trust.”
