Businesswise Solutions, one of the poster boys of the energy sector, launches a visionary interactive new energy centre – and BusinessCloud was there.

Anyone walking into the futuristic new offices of Businesswise Solutions is in for a shock.

The Lancashire-based company has become one of the poster boys of the energy sector since being launched from a kitchen table by current directors Frazer Durris and Dean Cockett in 2010.

Fast forward eight years and a lot has changed. The business has enjoyed 30-50 per cent revenue growth year-on-year for each of the last five years and is on track to grow turnover to £5m turnover by 2020.

The company has invested heavily in technology, evidenced by the launch of its interactive visionary new energy centre where visitors are invited to immerse themselves in an energy journey like never seen before.

“Energy has long been a fractured market, offering a poor, outdated service,” he said. “It is our aim to change this perception.

“We want this to be a space where we can educate customers about the opportunities available to them; disrupting the market using better buying and management methods, new technologies, data and artificial intelligence to their advantage.

“Focusing on long-term goals and not short-term profits, we’re looking to grow our team from 40 to 60 by 2019, in order to deliver our ambitious targets.”

The space was officially unveiled at a launch event where Burnley Football Club director Brendan Flood and Dennis Mendoros, former MD of Pendle’s multi-million pound aerospace firm, Euravia, shared stories about their business careers to an invited audience.
