Why we love being a tech firm here in sunny Suffolk

By Andy Boland 2nd May 2018

OK, first things first – we need to admit a truth. We may be a Suffolk company at heart, but one of our Directors is from Yorkshire and the other one (dare we admit it?) is from the other side of the Essex border.

But we won’t hold that against them!

Our Directors may be outsiders but SimpleClick is a true Suffolk business born and bred in Ipswich.

When people think of Suffolk, they often think of tractors, pork or even the stunning coastlines. But would you really think Suffolk = a vibrant tech community?

Well actually yes!

It may surprise you to know that we are home to a fabulous business scene which is continuing to grow from strength to strength. It genuinely hurts us that for some reason people think that to use a great web development company they need to be based in a large city. If you question them why, chances are they won’t be able to give you a reason – it’s just that for some people, innovative technology can only be handled in London.

Strange isn’t it?

We’re only an hour away from the Capital thanks to the mainline railway yet some people would think that we were living on the edges of an abyss.

Let’s tell you why we love working in Suffolk.

There are so many wonderful reasons why we are proud of our home town and our county. Here are just a few of them;

  • The business network is not only thriving, it’s developed into a strong, supportive community. People are always happy to work together and recommend other great businesses to work with. We’ve built some wonderful relationships with people we’ve met via groups including Suffolk Business Women, Suffolk Chamber, ISSBA, WiRE and we’re sure this will continue.
  • Our costs are clearly much lower than in London – this means that we can keep our prices low, ensuring our clients benefit from great value for money.
  • Our team love the lifestyle – our offices overlook great countryside and it’s a real break for those who like to get some fresh air at lunchtime.
  • The team also don’t need to rely on lengthy yet unreliable commutes to get into the office. Lets face it, we’ll all do anything for an extra ten minutes in bed in the morning, so being able to roll into the office seamlessly is a definite pluspoint!

Finally, in today’s technical age, we believe you really can base yourself anywhere you wish! As well as inviting local clients into our offices for project updates, we’re often found talking to clients further afield via Skype or Google Hangouts.

It’s easier, more efficient and often a lot more environmentally friendly as well!

So don’t let our location put you off – for us, being based in Suffolk is one of the best things about us!
