i2i End of Year Round-up

As 2021 draws to a close, we’ve been reflecting on the year and how it’s been a marker for a number of exciting milestones for our business. 

Ending the year on a high feels particularly meaningful this year, so we wanted to share our top 5 highlights of 2021 to share the positivity and as a reminder of the year it’s been.

We hope you enjoy our i2i 2021 round up! 

  1. Key Appointments

This year we’ve made some key appointments to our team including Office Administration Manager, Sophie, First Line Support Manager, Bradley, Senior IT Manager, Aaron and Account Manager Joseph. In the short space of being part of the i2i team, they’ve all made a hugely positive impact and have helped push our business in the direction of growth. The team is stronger than ever, and we’ve created a culture within the business that fosters innovation, passion and creativity from everyone. 

  1. New Home/Moved into our new office

Like many businesses, we spent lockdown working remotely and this became our norm. However, after making some organisational changes and redefining our roles we decided that a modern, centralised office space would enable us to get the best from our growing team. Moving into our HQ at Cardiff Gate in July was a stand-out moment for us this year and we’ve certainly made the place our own with the i2i logo and strapline “Be Humble, Be Nimble, Be Hungry” emblazoned on the walls, as a daily reminder of what drives us.

  1. Product Development

Throughout the year we’ve continued to develop and enhance our software to ensure we’re at the cutting edge of ERP and supporting our customers as their businesses evolve. We’ve added a number of new features including;

  • Cross Database Functionality for Multi Company Groups, giving total transparency and ease of reporting across multiple companies.
  • Dynamic Min/Max in buying tools
  • Purchase requisitions giving total buying control against all internal requirements
  • Android mobile computers giving a full WMS (Warehouse Management System) and proof of dispatch/collection with photo evidence and signature capture. We recently wrote a blog on the benefits which you can read here.
  • Tutorials on our YouTube channel to provide our customers with a catalogue of useful videos to help them get the most from the software.

We understand there’s been a lot of change and if you feel you would benefit from either a refresh of existing modules or new functions that would help further support your business let u know and we can arrange for either F2F or remote training where required.  We want to ensure you’re getting the very most from the software.

  1. Brand Refresh

As part of refocusing our core vision and values, we gave our branding a refresh in order to reflect them. We launched a new website earlier this year, which is much easier to navigate and we believe it encompasses our philosophy perfectly. We’ve added some new graphics, video testimonials from some of our clients as well as a news and blog section which we’ll continue to update with informative and interesting content. Keep an eye on our social media feeds where we’ll be sharing all our key news and updates.

  1. National and International Expansion

From a growth perspective, this year has been exceptional and is something we’re incredibly proud of.  We’ve always thought of ourselves as one of the best kept secrets in the ERP software market and this year we’ve worked hard to spread that message in our humble way, and it’s led to us growing our customer base nationally and internationally. All our business is based on customer referrals, a badge of honour that we wear with pride as the referrals keep coming, and now, with a strong team in place and a clear vision of where we want to be we’re investing more in growth and are extremely excited to see where the next year will take us.

We’d like to thank all our customers for a fantastic year. After the challenges we all faced through the pandemic it’s been amazing to support our businesses across manufacturing, retail, logistics and 3PL assisting their growth and efficiency through automation using i2i.

We look forward to working even more closely with our community of existing customers, and super excited at welcoming onboard all of those looking to go live during 2022.
