We are excited to be moving into September and the start of a new season. September is often a new start for many, as we still find ourselves using the Academic Year calendar, even in business.
But it feels even more of a new start so this year, post lockdown. It’s a time for a fresh re-set and we are looking forward to supporting businesses in the Pyramis way.
It has been quite a year so far! Back at the first quarter, Pyramis Solutions had big plans, our team expanded, we welcomed Alice, our finance Administrator, Vicky, our marketing and business development support and set up Pyramis Accountancy with Alison. Stephanie moved into the back office to focus on systems and we were just starting to redevelop our website. Then the unprecedented happened.
The country went into lockdown.
Like most businesses, it threw us into a situation we had not planned for. To be honest, no one could see it coming. Once the initial shock subsided Pyramis moved quickly to adapt to the new situation.
I took my office chair home with me and set up my home office. The team were already used to working remotely, so we could adapt quickly to a more enhanced flexible working model. We had already been using Slack for our communications and it was great for enabling us to create different subject channels and keep communication flowing without confusion. As a way of staying in touch, we continued with our weekly scrum meetings via ZOOM and invested in Trello as a tool for our main workflow, project management, and operational procedures.
Luckily, we had completed our photo shoot, with the amazing Jenny Stewart, days before lockdown so we could continue work on the website. Working closely with Paul, from Word Gets Around, we strove to make it what we wanted and we are so happy with the result.
So many businesses were struggling to stay afloat during the pandemic - we wanted to help so we developed and launched our Free Cash Flow Forecast resources which designed to help SMEs gain control, clarity and confidence with their numbers and decision making.
With thanks to Vicky, we got active on our socials! This was something we had been meaning to do for some time and we are now happy to share all of our products, services and news with everyone.
We also paid attention to our internal operations. Stefanie moved into her new role as Operations Coordinator and has been doing an amazing job behind the scenes. With a bigger team in place it was important that everyone understood and reflected the brand so we worked on our core values - these flow through everything we do and we carried on doing what we do best - supporting our existing clients.
We are now happy to be moving back to our office at Future Space for a couple of days a week – I have brought a new chair so I can keep my old one at home… just in case.
This month we are going to be settling into our new roles for two new clients that have opted for an outsourced finance solution to enable their business to grow.
We are excited to be starting the build of the Pyramis Tech brand and website; and are working with Future Space to offer other tenants advisory sessions to help support the community.
Lastly - we wish Alice GOOD LUCK for her upcoming accounting exam! (we know she’s going to do well).
You can stay in touch with us through our social channels.
