A New Future For Cetus


No Comments

It has been a long time coming. Ask anyone at Cetus; the old HQ was getting a bit, uhm, cramped. There was the nightmare that was the car park situation, with only ten spaces for the whole team of us Cetusites who could appear in droves at any moment- god forbid we have any vendor or partners in, things would get particularly messy-, the morning commute became a tad more frustrating before the first coffee of the day. Even with a department reshuffle within the building last October, which included boardroom tables moving from one floor to another, we’ve all ended up having to sit on each other’s laps at some point. But that is all set to change.

Cetus has been growing at an exponential rate and our old building in Salford Quays just couldn’t keep up. With the introduction of our sister brand instrato last summer, we’ve been setting ourselves bigger and more ambitious goals, which we just couldn’t achieve from such a tiny building. You know what they say; ‘dress for the job you want, not the job you have’. Except it was the opposite; from our little square building- more fitting for an episode of Blue’s Clues than an IT solutions firm extraordinaire- Cetus HQ was just not reflective of the huge projects and exciting challenges that we had going on.

After months of meetings behind closed doors and whispers in the hallways, we can finally publicly announce our flashy new Cetus HQ. Located near the Trafford Centre just outside of Manchester city, it’s two floors of sleek new desks, modern meeting rooms and, most importantly, a bigger kitchen. You know that it’s a Cetus building, with our logo and distinctive ‘Cetus purple’ everywhere. Not to gloat (too much), we have more parking spaces than we could shake a stick at, the sleekest boardrooms for the world-conquering that we get up to, plenty of break-out spaces to use for impromptu discussions without having to use an entire boardroom and lots of hot desks for the various Cetusites/vendors/partners that come to soak up all of that Cetus magic. And it’s all packaged in 360 degrees of windows for all of that sweet, sweet vitamin D.

The whole project is the epitome of the teamwork and make-things-happen attitude we have at Cetus. The mammoth task of getting Cetus into our new home had members from every department working day and night on all of the finer details to make the dream a reality. And all while making sure that all the daily tasks and huge projects continued as normal. Now that’s multitasking.

So, what does this mean for our extended Cetus family- the very people and organisations that give us the reason to get up in the morning? Now, we finally have the room to think. Cetus is made up of geniuses, whether they’re techies, sales people, Marketing or administration. With the space to think, plan and execute the strategies that we spend so much time working on, we can work on bigger things. The Cetus team is growing, and this building allows us to do that without compromising the well-being of the existing team.

With an emphasis on collaboration, we’re looking forward to having the brightest minds from our partners and partner vendors come in and work alongside us. With all of the teamwork, space to think and sparkly new everything, the motivation at Cetus is at an all-time high. More than ever, we’re ready to prove that what we have at Cetus is more than just some IT solutions to help your organisation run smoothly. We are part of your IT, from development stages to building and deploying your perfect solution, and we remain part of your IT long after it goes live. This new building and everything that comes with it is not just for us, it’s for all of those organisations, IT teams and end users that make up the wider Cetus family. This is a new chapter in Cetus history, and it’ll be the biggest yet. So strap in and join us for the latest crazy ride.
