Influentials’ Q3, 2016, in review

While many businesses slow down for the summer, be it for staff on holidays or year-long projects being mid-cycle, Q3 has been as busy as ever for Influential.

A big announcement in Q3 was the unveiling of Influential as official MuleSoft Partners. As well as our teams undergoing intensive training, we also launched a dedicated MuleSoft website and our teams now working directly with MuleSoft on upcoming projects.

We were also pleased to see a healthy collection of new clients join us along with a wide spread of new and exciting projects across all of our technology specialisms.

As Influential continues to grow, so have our staff numbers. With key members joining teams across the company we’ve also said goodbye to a few Apprentices from the 2015 Apprenticeship intake. As we prepare to take on new interns, we took the chance to look back at the 12 months the Apprentices worked alongside our Software Development teams.

New Projects and New Clients

All our teams have been busy with new projects in Q3, but perhaps one of the most in-demand technologies we have seen is  Microsoft SharePoint (our SharePoint website launched in Q2 this year). The SharePoint team projects have included SharePoint Upgrades and Migration, but also delivering bespoke SharePoint training to clients on-premise.

A host of new projects launched in Q3 this year. Many of these were for new clients, ranging from London-based businesses and UK charities through to global corporations, who we all know through well-known household brands.

We are already seeing successful results from these projects and we are already keen to drive their businesses further. It is important for any business to cultivate excellent client relationships. This has always a core focus for Influential. As a result, we have successfully continued to work with a several of our clients for over 20 years.

P&G – also know as Procter & Gamble Co. – are home to a huge range of well known, very popular household brands. Founded in the US in the 1800’s by William Procter from the UK, and James Gamble from Ireland, the company has continued to grow into what is today one of the few truly global consumer goods companies.While made up of many individual brands, each serving customers in different ways, P&G ensure all their brands focus on making the people’s lives easier, “making your day better—in small but meaningful ways”.

P&G also take leadership seriously. So as well as improving the moments in consumers daily lives, they also see it as their our opportunity and responsibility to improve the communities in which they live and work and the lives of their employees. Influential are proud to have worked on internal projects with such teams.
