NEW HEAD OFFICE

August was a busy month for us all as we bubble wrapped all of our precious software and patents from our old workplace in Kittle Yards and had it moved to our brand new office in the heart of Edinburgh, 108 Princes Street. In line with our ongoing expansion the office can now accommodate growing staff numbers and put our HQ in a fabulous location to operate from.

Along with our colleagues, family and friends we had our first office party and celebrated the last day of the Fringe Festival Fireworks on the 29th of August which went off with a bang with the spectacular display right in front of us from the balcony.

MEDIA COVERAGE

We’ve had a lot to share this last quarter and received numerous press mentions as a result. We had local newspapers cover our news on our grant from Scottish Enterprise as well as our collaborating with TomTom and Micello in addition to plenty of online coverage talking about our promising journey ahead.

We’ve had different media reporting our stories, from BBC News, the Times and the Scotsman to Marketing Blog and even a couple of LBMA podcasts. Paper clippings and more online coverage can be found archived in our news section on our website.
