We’re almost there… 10 years old this October! It’s been an incredible time; we’ve achieved some amazing things and created an internationally-award-winning team.
Nine-and-a-bit years on and we’re now a thriving digital experience company creating everything from truly immersive classrooms used to inspire kids to learn maths to the Smartest building in the UK today for United Business Media.
As a business we’ve been growing steadily with a doubling of headcount last year and have found ourselves working with an increasing number of household names. We love looking after all of our clients, many of whom we’ve had relationships with for years.
We picked up two awards in February: from InAVate (Best Corporate Facility), and AV News (Commercial Project of the Year) at Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam for our work at UBM. We’re also fortunate to now count Canary Wharf Group, Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, BSH Appliances (Bosch, Siemens and NEFF) and the NHS as clients. We’re committed to maintaining our original roots in the education sector (which still accounts for 35% of our revenue today) and are in the process of developing a brand new product for school halls and drama studios.
We’ll be continuing to deliver some of the world’s most cutting-edge audio-visual projects and looking after people’s technology estates including AV, IT, networks, wireless, telecommunications and network-enabled building services. We’ve recently extended our offering to include Smart building technology design and are providing significant thought leadership to this emerging market.
With this in mind, we are in the process of designing our new Birmingham headquarters, which we plan to turn in to a Smart office demonstrator. We’ve generated significant savings for our clients and now want to show people that what many deem as ‘futuristic’ is actually achievable today.
Thankfully Team Vanti are an incredible, multi-talented bunch so building it won’t be a problem. We’re very fortunate to have some of the very best people from the range of industries we operate across working with us. Whether you need someone to integrate multiple systems together, design an awesome system user experience or look after your technology estate for you, someone at Vanti can take care of it.
We’ve done a lot of work on our culture recently too after setting our Mars Team off on their mission. Team Vanti is now a group of people confident about their shared core values and beliefs: Mastery, Integrity, Discovery, Fun and Care. You can find out more at our Vanti Life micro site.
We’re really excited about this next chapter and hope you can join us on our journey. Here’s to the next 10!
