23rd January 1998 was the day it all began, the birth of Solutions for Accounting.
Computers were colossal, the term ‘apple’ most commonly referred to fruit and our dress sense and hair styles were questionable! A lot has changed in 20 years, we are now in a technological age that would have blown our minds in the 90’s.
20 years ago, Imagine someone telling you that your mobile phone would also be a miniature computer on which you could access your banking, connect with people all over the world and even book a holiday, without having to physically speak to anyone! Technology is evolving at a rapid speed, be this phones and tablets, virtual reality or cars. Everything is becoming quicker, easier and more frequently a part of our everyday lives. As a society, we are reliant on technology.
This is the same in business. You no longer need to be in the office to access your company documents, gain an overview of yours or a customer’s accounts or view previous communications. Even the definition of an office is starting to change! Now your office can be anywhere – your local coffee shop, the train…anywhere with an internet connection.
Our 20th Birthday is a huge cause for celebration at Solutions, we have come a long way. On 23rd January 1998 we started off with just one employee, now we are a loyal team of 45 and still on the hunt for more talent to add to our rapidly expanding team.
Hitting our birthday milestone is not the only cause for celebration however. When you have been in business for as long as we have, strong relationships are imperative. Relationships are incredibly important to us at Solutions and enable us to have the vast support network that we have today. Our incredibly loyal base of customers, suppliers and staff enable all Solutions to function in the way it does.
Iain Barker, Solutions MD said “The world was a different place in 1998 and it has been a wonderful first twenty years for Solutions. While they have flown by, it’s hard to believe what we have achieved in that time.
“My intentions have always been to maintain a friendly atmosphere for staff and clients, and I hope I have achieved this. While Solutions has a strong growth ambition, it’s vital that we don’t lose our enjoyable, yet hardworking qualities.
“Of course, I couldn’t have done this on my own. I would like to pay tribute to the fantastic team of loyal staff who have helped to build Solutions for Accounting and CRM into the business it is today.
“I would also like to thank all of our loyal clients, customers and partners for being a part of our journey and look forward to working with them as we enter the next exciting phase in our story”
We have a feeling 2018 is going to be a great year…
