Happy 10th Birthday to us!
I am absolutely thrilled to share that our business is ten years old. This is a fantastic milestone to have reached but we couldn't have done it without the support of our loyal customers and hard working team of staff, and I would like to say a huge thank you to both.
Looking back it's great to see how far we've come and all of the changes we've been through. We started as a small team including myself, Lisa, Damien, Ian, Jim, and Jon, and we're all still here, plus we've been able to grow to over 30 people now. When InfoVision went into administration we were of course disappointed but there were a number of customers that still needed software development and support, and this is where our opportunity to start Derventio came from.
We've developed software and website solutions for multi-million pound organisations, as well as for SMEs. I am pleased to say that we continue to support and develop for all of these organisations today, and our customer retention is something I am extremely proud of.
After developing software for others we decided five years ago that we wanted to develop a product that would help education, an area we all share a passion for. We had a relationship with Sir Mark Grundy and it was from here that SchooliP was created, to help schools to improve their performance. At present we have hundreds of schools reaping the benefits of the solution and I am delighted that many of them refer more customers to us, and are more than happy to be an advocate for the solution.
More recently we have moved into the Further and Higher Education markets with CollegeiP and UniversityiP. This has created another opportunity for us and a new challenge which is exciting.
I think the above summarises some of our journey so far and whilst I really am thrilled to have reached our 10th Birthday, the story doesn't end there. The team will tell you that I am extremely ambitious and together, we have big plans to take the organisation forward. We've got some exciting new solutions in the pipeline for education, as well as numerous new business organisations that want to work with us. It is with this in mind that we are more than ready to get stuck into the next ten years including the challenges and the achievements that these years may bring.
Once again may I extend my thanks to our loyal customers, you know we're always here if you need anything, and also to our team. We've got some great people who work for us and their dedication is appreciated.
Here's to the next ten years!
