Phoenix open their new sales office and celebrate a fantastic year of growth and recognition with global awards from strategic partners like Microsoft

Phoenix Software, based in Pocklington, today announced it has opened its new sales office as part of a million-pound investment in their office premises for future growth.

This completes a year of success, after they won the 2019 Microsoft Global Modern Workplace Transformation Partner of the Year Award in July. The company has gone through rapid expansion and transformation in the last two years, since it was acquired by the Altron Group.

“The Team here at Phoenix feel proud to have had the investment made in their new sales office and we will continue our redevelopment of the rest of the premises with an immediate plan of creating a new kitchen area, recreation and informal meeting space in the old building, plus an ongoing programme of updates for other departments throughout 2020. We wanted to really embrace the idea of a modern workplace and we are excited to be able to make this a reality and deliver truly transformation change for our staff in their office environment”

The opening ceremony took place on Monday 28th October, where all 208 staff and contractors were invited to a celebration breakfast of Bucks Fizz and canapes as they got to view the newly transformed area that has taken just under a year to complete.

Working with local architects Ellis Healey, and contractors Task Space Interiors, Praxis Project Management, John Wright Electrical, RK Builders & Joinery Ltd, the project was delivered on time and on budget.
