Orderwise unveils expansion plans – 90 new jobsLast updated on: July 7, 2016, Author: R Sahota
Software firm OrderWise has unveiled plans to expand its premises in Saxilby, Lincolnshire, creating 90 new jobs and an advanced warehouse training facility.
The new building will expand the site by 14,000 square feet, and is scheduled to be ready by January next year.
“This expansion has come just after our 25th anniversary as a company,” said OrderWise Managing Director David Hallam. “Our team is growing fast and we’re very excited to see the building work start.”
Since moving to the premises in 2010, the number of employees has grown from 33 to more than 110 today. David added: “Once we have the new building ready, there will be around 90 new jobs to reflect our progress. The bottom floor will house our sales team and after-sales care team, the latter of which act as account managers to existing customers. The top floor will then be for our ever-expanding team of support staff.”
A new two-floor simulation warehouse is part of the expansion and designed for staff training, to improve existing OrderWise software, and also to show potential clients how the company’s products work in real-time, practical situations.
David added: “This is a feature you won’t see anywhere else and is all about improving the capabilities of our software. It will also allow us to demonstrate key features to show their applicable uses in a live warehouse environment. It really underlines how seriously we take our products and services.”
The creation of this new building is also designed to help the Website Design & Development Team at OrderWise continue their rapid growth within their existing premises.
