Unfold team celebrating at awards after winning best digital design

Team Unfold celebrated success on 14th October 2021, taking home the title of “Best Digital Design” at The SPARKies 2021. This was awarded for the transformational work we completed for clients Sherpr.

The SPARKies is one of the year’s most hotly anticipated tech awards ceremonies in the South West. Since Harry won ‘FutureSPARK’ back in 2019, we’ve been nominated for several other categories (including ‘Tech Leader of the Year’ this year). The ceremony was held at The Showroom on Bath Road and was joint hosted by the TechSpark team and comedian Stephen Bailey (who had all of us in stitches).

Sherpr came to us with two problems;

  • Their back office operations were not sustainable. Many of the tasks required to process customer orders were still manual, and man-hour intensive meaning they had very little room to scale-up.
  • Their content-management system was also difficult for their back office team to manage, forcing them to resort to developer support to even make the smallest content updates.

We built a custom web app, admin portal and marketing site for Sherpr in just 10 weeks. This completely transformed their business. As well as automating all of the time-intensive back office tasks, we also created an editable CMS through which they could update and manage their products without constant developer support.

As well as immediate savings in overheads, Sherpr were also able to process far more clients with their new reliable and automated booking system.

Following the work we completed for them, Sherpr achieved their first ever 6-figure month and hit an annual run-rate of £1.2m.

“From beginning to end, the team at Unfold have been great to work with. Communication has been easy and any changes we needed to make during the build process were welcomed and perfectly executed.” – Andy Watson, CEO of Sherpr
