Did you know that two thirds of UK small businesses are now using remote working as a means to save money and attract the best talent?
We recently conducted a nationwide survey of our business customers, in order to identify their most common barriers to growth. Overwhelmingly, the biggest challenge small businesses faced when looking to scale was finding and retaining customers – with over 45% ranking this as their primary concern. Perhaps not surprisingly, the results also showed that 66% of UK businesses have foregone traditional offices and instead, operate their business by hiring remote employees.
Last week our Founder and Managing Director, Charles Chance, was invited by Enterprise Nation to join them at 10 Downing Street. This special invitation gave Charles the opportunity to not only represent Birmingham itself, but also to represent entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship in the city and wider region.
Charles and a collection of other entrepreneurs were each given a chance to share their opinions, raise concerns, and suggest ways in which the government could better support small businesses and start-ups across the UK.
Hello and welcome to the Nimvelo Community. Your window into the Nimvelo world.
Over the last few months we’ve been working on something rather special. Today, we are launching a new initiative for Nimvelo Phone customers and UK businesses. Over the past 6 years we’ve worked with thousands of businesses all working hard to succeed and grow. No matter which industry you’re in, we’ve all got a story to tell about what it’s like to run a business in the UK and we’re all hungry to learn from each other.
As your business phone provider, we’ve been helping you talk to your customers for years, and now it’s time for us to have a voice in the conversation.
It’s official. We’re rebranding.
As of next week – 27 July 2015 – Sipcentric will become Nimvelo.
