How we've helped Affinity Digital
Truro-based Affinity Digital has won three large contracts over the last 12 months thanks to the business’s expertise, and a quick response to changing work patterns brought in by the national lockdowns.
The company, which specialises in enterprise-level software development, started a project with the Cabinet Office at the beginning of lockdown in 2020 and has since won a bid to build, maintain and keep secure the website for the G7 Summit.
Sales Director Jonathan Duval said: “Working remotely has allowed Affinity Digital to be judged based on our people and the quality of our work, not on our location or an expensive office. Cornwall can feel quite distant from the action but with remote working and more people feeling comfortable meeting and getting work done online, we’ve been able to secure the new contracts without the need to meet anyone in person.”
“The changes kick-started by the Covid restrictions and winning these new contracts have contributed to the transformational success of our business, and we’re excited to see what the future holds.”
Having an outside perspective on the business has helped us see where we can continue to improve.
How we helped
The company has recently undergone some alterations in their processes and methodologies, and how they communicate this to prospective clients. The need for an update was recognised by the Growth Hub, which has helped Affinity Digital secure funding to make the necessary changes.
Connector Chris Phillips said: “Affinity Digital has been doing some really exciting things recently and it's great to see Cornish companies working outside the sphere of the South West. They were already working with some great clients, but we noticed that they weren't doing much to shout about their achievements. Setting them up with the Access to Growth fund has helped the company bolster their communications and continue their growth.”
Commenting on the support from the Growth Hub, Jonathan said: “They were really useful in recognising a need within us and servicing it through a grant. Having an outside perspective on the business has helped Affinity Digital see where we can continue to improve.”
