Phoebus Software reaches 90 employees and opens new officeLast updated on: August 16, 2016, Author: R Sahota
Financial services software provider Phoebus Software is moving to a new home in Solihull as a result of significant growth in recent months.
Phoebus will take up 15,000 sq ft of third floor space at Lansdowne Gate in the heart of Solihull.
Phoebus has celebrated sustained growth over the last year, with new staff joining the team, which now stands at over 90 employees up 20 from a year ago. The new office space includes room for further expansion and additional staff in the coming months. The company is expected to move into its new offices next month (September).
Paul Hunt, managing director of Phoebus, said: “We chose the new building at Lansdowne Gate in Solihull because it is three times larger than the space we have available in our current building and it provides us with the flexibility for more unique ways of working, such as collaborative working spaces, break out areas as well as private space areas for those who need to concentrate or have private meetings.
“An additional advantage is that it is next to a park which will allow us to hold more social and sporting activities; we treat the wellbeing of or staff very seriously and this will help with that.”
Founded in 1989, Phoebus Software is a leading solutions provider to banking, building society and lending sectors. Its market leading software supports clients in driving operational and commercial efficiencies. Currently undergoing a brand new fit out, the new Phoebus offices will include a wellbeing room, brainstorming zone, writable walls and a coffee bar, with a key focus on staff wellbeing.
The move was managed by Birmingham-based chartered surveyors Johnson Fellows, who also advised on sourcing the new offices and is overseeing the fit out of the space.
Charles Warrack, head of office agency at Johnson Fellows, said: “Solihull is an increasingly popular destination for businesses looking for value outside of the Birmingham market and well located close to the M42 and Birmingham Airport. We’re very happy to have been able to secure this space at Lansdowne Gate in a competitive market and can now look forward to watching Phoebus continue its impressive growth in a new home.”
