SwiftCloud have officially launched its new offices which will involve a total investment of £1 million over the next five years.

We have moved from the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre in Huddersfield to Folly Hall Mills at Folly Hall.

The move to the new office space has coincided with a hat-trick of major client wins which has seen fresh produce giant Dole, commercial vehicle manufacturer Isuzu Truck UK and supermarket staple Tilda Rice coming on board.

SwiftCloud, has experienced impressive growth over the last 12 months, achieving just under £2.5m in turnover, a 28% increase year-on-year and its fourth year of profitable growth.

We now have a 50-strong team and boasts 218 clients, with major brands including Pepsi Co, Pukka Pads and AG BARR.

We have also significantly grown its channel partner network this year, with 33 resellers and referrers now on board.

The new premises include the creation of a suite of executive offices and a new boardroom, named the Armitage Suite.

The Armitage Suite is a tribute to Peter Armitage, a non-executive director at Adventoris and founding partner of Key Capital Partners, who passed away in March 2023.

Peter was one of the original investors in the company and has contributed significantly to the business over the years.

Located on St Thomas’ Road in Huddersfield, Folly Hall Mills is a Grade II* listed building originally constructed in the 1820s by Huddersfield builder, Joseph Kaye, who was the man behind many of Huddersfield’s iconic buildings, including the railway station and the George Hotel. The mill was rebuilt in 1844 after a fire.

The site has hosted a number of traders over the years, most notably the internationally acclaimed worsted yarn company, Joseph Lumb & Co, which is responsible for the creation of the Golden Bale medal, an accreditation for worsted yarn that is now an international standard.

As well as having a rich heritage in Huddersfield, the site also has a personal connection with our CEO James Clarkson, whose wife’s grandmother used to work on the looms there.

Speaking of the news, Mr Clarkson said: “We’ve had another fantastic year and this is a move that will help take Adventoris to the next level.

“It will solidify our place in the market, allowing us the space and opportunity to grow and develop the team and offering, while continuing to be a part of the wonderful Huddersfield business community.

“Folly Hall Mills is the ideal site for us continue growing as we look ahead to further global expansion this year.

“I am proud that we can include a tribute to Peter in our new space, through the Armitage Suite. Peter was a huge part of the business and is greatly missed.

SwiftCloud has welcomed six new staff and 28 new clients in its tenth year of trading as the B2B ecommerce solution continues to revolutionise B2B ecommerce ordering.

“The last few years have seen us go from strength to strength, and we are continuing on that trajectory.

I am incredibly proud of the team.”

Fellowes has launched a new sales app for its Benelux market following the successful rollout of the app across its Spanish and Italian counterparts.

Created by Software as a Service (SaaS) provider, Adventoris, the app features SwiftCloud software designed to support distributors and wholesalers in streamlining their customer and sales processes.

SwiftCloud provides businesses with a platform that enables their customers to see products, communicate with the company, and make orders 24/7. SwiftCloud can save customers over 50 per cent in ordering time. Clients have also experienced basket sales increasing by 15 per cent when utilising this technology with customers.

Samantha Vodden, business systems manager – Europe at Fellowes, said: “We are constantly evolving to add value to the customer experience. Creating systems that are user-friendly and efficient. Developing our sales app in numerous languages not only provides a more streamlined process for our international clients but has allowed the company to maintain its position in the sector and target new global markets.

“We have introduced sales apps in different languages in recent years and have seen our sales go up. This is as customers respond to a faster and simpler way to make orders. As well as launching the app in the Benelux region, we are also looking at adding more language options to the app as we break into new markets.”

Increasing Sales
Since investing in SwiftCloud technologies, Fellowes’ orders per month have been reaching over £200,000.

Over the last 12-months, SwiftCloud has made significant strides in developing its language offerings. Enabling it to further support global clients like Fellowes. SwiftCloud can currently be developed in English, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, and French.

James Clarkson, CEO of Adventoris said, “it’s been a complex process to deliver our first Benelux app. The team has worked tirelessly to ensure that the app meets both our standards and Fellowes’ requirements.

“Adopting different languages to the software will open up more opportunities in the international market. This has always been part of our long-term business plan. It also makes the SwiftCloud product even more inclusive.”

Aman Shergill, CTO at Adventoris added, “it was an intricate job, changing fixed labels throughout the two existing mobile app platforms and desktop module to replace them with labels stored in a database with country codes. We worked closely with the Fellowes team to constantly review the project and get the platform right.

“It is a credit to our hardworking development team that we have made such progress. Adapting our product to different markets and their language requirements.”

Huddersfield based Software as a Service (SaaS) provider Adventoris is celebrating after a successful 2021. A start that saw its revenue increase for a fifth year at a cumulative annual growth rate of 83%.

The effects of the pandemic and the demand for digitising sales and ordering processes across many industries. Industries such as manufacturing, wholesale and retail, has accelerated the growth of Adventoris over the last 12 months.

Adventoris is the creator of SwiftCloud, a ground-breaking mobile business to business software that revolutionises the way companies make sales and engage with customers. SwiftCloud is a customisable B2B mobile app platform. Designed specifically for distributors and wholesalers. It enables their customers to see products, communicate with the company and make orders 24/7.

In 2021, its total revenue was up by 37%, and its recurring SaaS revenue has been increasing 62% year on year. Over half a million orders were also made through SwiftCloud powered apps during the year. With a combined total of £0.3bn and over 50,000 active users.

Fifty new clients were onboarded and the business also broke into new markets. These include baby care, golf, timber and seafood, as more industries adopted digital sales and ordering processes.

To date, Adventoris has created 180 ordering apps for companies throughout the UK and beyond. For clients such as Fellowes, STAEDTLER, Sysco Speciality Group and Pipers Crisps.

Growing Client List
Due to the demand for SwiftCloud’s software, further investment has been made to enhance its servers. As well as upgrading the platform to the latest version of Oracle and Oracle APEX, for release in 2022, to ensure the app software is the best it can be.

SwiftCloud is consistently growing and evolving. With new modules and updates being added regularly. It now offers six ordering solutions. Including SwiftCloud Web Portal and SwiftCloud Sales Manager app.

SwiftCloud is proven to save up to 80% of customer service costs, by removing the expensive cost of manual data entry. As well as costs associated with human error when inputting data. It can also save end customers up to 50% of the time in preparing and submitting an order. Adventoris’ clients have experienced the number of customer orders increasing by 26% when utilising SwiftCloud.

James Clarkson, Adventoris’ CEO, said: “The last few years have seen our business go from strength to strength. We’re continuing along that trajectory as we head into 2022.

“The team has worked tirelessly over the last year to keep up with the demand in businesses. Shifting to digital processes, but also responding to constantly evolving technology, software, compliance and legislation to ensure the customer experience is at the highest level.

“I’m incredibly proud of the team and look forward to growing even further in 2022. As we look to bring in even more new talent and break into new markets.”

Writing instruments company Staedtler UK has strengthened and streamlined its digital presence with the launch of a new B2B app powered by SwiftCloud.

Created by Software as a Service (SaaS) provider Adventoris, the SwiftCloud app enables Staedtler’s customers to view thousands of products, communicate with the company and place orders 24/7.

Staedtler UK Managing Director Philip Wesolowski says that the new ordering system is a vast improvement on the old one, which was heavily reliant on email and phone orders and visits from sales representatives.

He said: “Before SwiftCloud, our trade sales channel operated with manual order capture and order entry which was very time consuming for both sales and customer service staff. Manual processes also led to errors resulting in credit notes and a less-than-perfect experience for the customer. Some of our customers would also wait for a visit from their sales rep to place an order, meaning they placed orders sporadically.

“Introducing the SwiftCloud app to our organisation has not only allowed our customers more freedom to order from us whenever suits them, but it has also enabled us to provide up-to-date product information and a whole host of marketing materials to support them too.”

Staedtler is just one of many SwiftCloud clients who operate in the stationery industry.
