2015 and the first half of 2016, has seen Boxmodel continue on a positive growth trajectory. This can be evidenced by its further growth and expansion this time in the County of Suffolk.
The award winning Software Company was born in the famous North East City of Newcastle in 2009 and now has a number of offices across two continents, seeing growth of 277% in the last four years.
Managing Director and Partner, Paul Hutton said; “Many ask; “Why the need for multiple offices?” The answer is simple; despite software embracing the latest technologies, at the core of the company is the attention played to engagement with clients face-to-face. This allows us to really understand the needs and objectives of any project.”
The expansion into Suffolk came amidst one of the busiest periods for the company, having won a number of contracts to work within client’s organisations, in-house, on collaborative software projects. These projects include a cutting edge software platform for the Internet of Things (IoT).
The approach of real engagement with stakeholders, complemented by an Agile Delivery Methodology has lead to long-term partnerships with the likes of; Airbus Defence & Space, Newcastle University, Renault, Rentokil Initial, Unison and the NHS. Paul went on to explain that some of the most gratifying projects were those from SME’s. Which has seen the return on investments for these Clients deliver far ahead of their expectations and is testament to the processes deployed by Boxmodel.
Of course, delivery timelines are often at the top of the client’s wish list. Having an office in New Zealand means that Boxmodel can operate as a 24-hour operation, delivering complex bespoke software, native and web App’s and business engagement platforms. This is particularly useful when working with industry partners who require software or digital solutions turned around in a short period of time, in order to react to their dynamic landscapes.
The new Suffolk office at Norfolk House, Williamsport Way, Needham Market, Ipswich, will be the home to strategic account specialists, research and development technicians and some of the commercial team.
Suffolk is only an hour from the home to many of our blue-chip clients in London and Stansted Airport being only 45 minutes away allows easy access to and from many European meeting locations. This places Boxmodel in an ideal position to drive their ethos of “face-to-face” is best when developing software and digital applications. Suffolk as a county is passionate about attracting emerging and high growth businesses offering a wealth of support.
