A SOLIHULL software start-up is already winning its first clients as it looks to kickstart its business.
Digital Innk, which has developed an app and associated software ‘ViSN’ that links vehicle rental companies, fleet operators, drivers, and garages to improve communication between them all, recently moved to Blythe Valley.
The business had no permanent offices in its early days, choosing instead to work out of serviced offices in Solihull.
However, when it began to win its first clients towards the start of the year, it felt a change was needed.
Angela Montacute, one of Digital Innk’s five co-founders, said: “We felt the time was right to find ourselves a permanent home. It’s much better to bring prospective clients to an office that’s truly your own.
“We heard that Blythe Valley Innovation Centre had space, so we booked a viewing there.
“Centre manager Andy Stewart explained how flexible the arrangement was at Blythe Valley with us being able to move into bigger spaces in the future if needed. That was very attractive to us.
“Its accessibility with it being just off the M42 was also an added bonus as it means our staff and clients, who are based all over the country, do not have to travel far to get here.
“We signed a three-year lease, and we’re confident Blythe Valley will be a fantastic space for us to grow as a business.”
Roz Deacon, Centre Administrator at Blythe Valley Innovation Centre, said: “Even though Digital Innk have only been with us a short time, they have made themselves at home really quickly.
“It’s fantastic they will be here for at least the next three years, and we look forward to helping move into bigger office space within the Innovation centre as they grow.”
