Cardiff-founded Box UK set for ambitious growth
Box UK has announced substantial revenue growth, alongside ambitious growth plans, as clients look to it for innovative web and software solutions as part of an increasing drive towards digital transformation.
The business, founded in 1998 in Cardiff, has seen record turnover in 2015 and has now revealed an ambitious five-year growth plan designed to triple its UK turnover to more than £15 million by 2019. This is to be realised through the expansion of the company’s national and international client base.
Recent projects include a multi-million pound digital transformation for the 425,000-strong Royal College of Nursing; the delivery of mission-critical software for the British Horseracing Authority, underpinning the UK’s £3.5 billion racing industry; and an award-winning technology and user experience overhaul for global finance company Investec Asset Management.
It’s also provided TBC Bank with a multi-channel experience for its users this year, delivering a staggering 54 per cent leap in remote mobile banking transactions in just 12 months. Since partnering with the software consultancy, TBC Bank has been recognised by Global Finance Magazine as one of the world’s best internet banks.
Other key clients for the organisation include Jaguar Land Rover, Raiffeisen, Careers Wales, Moneypenny, Trading Standards Institute and the National Gallery.
Benno Wasserstein, managing director at Box UK, said: “We are incredibly proud of our achievements this year, having delivered the biggest and most challenging projects in our history. We’ve built our strongest and most experienced team, created a world-class infrastructure and inspired a passion for quality that’s embedded in everything we do.
“Our continued investment in best-in-class talent alongside cutting-edge technical capability enables Box UK to stay responsive to market needs. We place the client’s challenges at the very heart of what we do, solving some of the most daunting software problems for leading organisations across the globe.
“Our expertise is in developing innovative solutions for our clients’ ambitious needs – making us a first-choice digital partner in what is a very crowded marketplace.”
In February 2015, Box UK was recognised as a leading employer and was included in prestigious The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For list. The organisation’s work was also recently recognised with two Communicator Awards.
Friends, clients and employees are attending a celebratory event on 15th June at the Wales Millennium Centre to recognise the company’s continued growth and success and officially launch the company’s new brand.
Benno concluded: “Simply brilliant thinkers making software brilliantly simple – this is what has been instrumental in our success to date and what will continue to power the business in the future.
“The unveiling of Box UK’s new branding today is not only a significant step in our exciting journey as a business, but testament to the skills and expertise we have to lead businesses in their drive to digital transformation.”
