Attracting New Talent!

November 2, 2017

Chris editedYesterday, we were at the University of Gloucestershire Placement Fair. We spoke to many students that are either looking for an Undergraduate Placement opportunity or a full-time role after graduation.

channelcentral has been working with the University of Gloucestershire for 3 years and we have had much success with our Undergraduate Placement Scheme. Our students have worked on development projects for multi-national organisations and have brought great value to the business with their talent and enthusiasm. In return, we firmly believe in giving our students the best start; with excellent rates of pay and benefits, a varied role with lots of opportunities to learn and a friendly, experienced team of professionals to work with.

One of our placement students simply said:

“Basically, it’s the biggest opportunity you can have to develop your skills”

As we look to recruit the next wave of Placement Students into our business, we are proud to have a permanent member of staff who came back to us after the Undergraduate Placement scheme. With all of our students, we not only want to give them the best start in the IT Industry, but we want them to spend their careers with us!

Celebrating a Decade in the Channel

August 29, 2017

August 2017 marks 10 years of channelcentral being in business. We are incredibly excited to be celebrating. It has taken a lot of hard work to get to where we are today, made slightly harder by the Global Recession that coincided with our launch!

In August 2007 channelcentral started as a team of just 4 people working out of a spare rooms. A year later, our flagship product, iQuote, was born. Today, iQuote is used around the world in over 60 countries by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and HP Inc. customers. This configure, price, quote (CPQ) software has helped grow their businesses and provide efficiencies within sales teams in hundreds of Distributors and Resellers.

Off the back of iQuote’s success, channelcentral has been able to develop new CPQ Software services, Product Selectors, B2B Sales Portals, and Smartphone Apps as well as many custom built developments to assist the IT Channel. Our Software has been shortlisted for a few awards along the way too!

Today, channelcentral has 2 UK offices and a presence in the US and Colombia to support it’s ever growing business. With 29 members of staff, many of which have come from the IT Channel and are experts in their field, channelcentral is looking forward to the next 10 years and developing many more software solutions for IT Vendors, Distributors and Resellers.

At our Company Meeting held in August 2017 we reflected on the last 10 years and enjoyed an obligatory cake. A huge Thank You to all of our customers for helping us get this far. We wish we could have saved you some cake!
