Can you tell me about Cloud2?
Cloud2 is a Bradford based company, we create industry solutions that solve real business problems.
As a leading Microsoft Gold partner in the UK, we look to create solutions that are unique to Cloud2 with intellectual property in 4 key areas: collaboration and compliance, process automation, intelligent insights and guided decision making.
As an example of intelligent insights, in healthcare we helped Rotherham Hospital significantly reducing waiting times for patient appointments by 65% within 6 months.
For companies, we help automate traditional processes and see how their business is performing in real time from any location.
Our expertise includes technologies such as Microsoft Teams, Power Apps, Flow, robotic process automation, Power BI, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
What challenges were you facing that made you decide to choose Hope Park Workspaces?
When we started Cloud2 11 years ago, the Microsoft technologies we worked with changed every 3-4 years, nowadays they change every month, and are almost entirely built in the cloud. So we wanted a working environment for our team that was modern and forward looking, with good internet infrastructure and the ability to adapt to our needs and to support the rapid pace of change and growth we’re seeing at Cloud2.
Location – love the fact it’s right off the M606 motorway, didn’t really realise how easy it would be for everyone in the company and visitors to get to and from.
How did you hear about Hope Park?
Word of mouth, from another company, Z1 Telecom that were already a tenant and kept saying how lovely it was here.
What has been your overall experience like with us?
It’s been great so far, we love the ethos of Hope Park. Since they are owned by a charity, it aligns well with Cloud2’s values, particularly the one where we look to contribute something back to the community.
We enjoy using the full size sports hall in the building where we play table tennis and badminton at lunchtimes. The support we get from the Hope Park admin and management team has been really good, they do request and take feedback on board and in the time we’ve been here we’ve seen an ongoing programme of investment. We do feel more of a partner than a tenant and so many of our visitors comment positively on the site. Finally, there is superb food from breakfasts to lunch and great coffee available onsite at The Sugar Snap Kitchen so we don’t go hungry or thirsty!
What’s next for your company?
Our team has grown by over 50% since we moved in just over a year ago. We have ambitious growth plans and are looking to continue to grow within the Hope Park facilities and to proactively support the Northern Powerhouse Partnership. We’re excited to be in the middle of delivering a number of groundbreaking projects and look forward to sharing these in a future update.
