Here at projectfive, we always like to try and do things a little differently. So instead of celebrating our own special dates, we decided we would like to shine the spotlight on our clients and mark their anniversaries instead! After all, if it wasn’t for our customers, we wouldn’t have a birthday!
At the end of April, we were delighted to make a visit to the GSA office, to thank them for being a loyal customer of ours for 10 years!
GSA is a Government licensed Approved Inspector, providing Building Regulation approvals for all types of building work. In the last 17 years, they have provided services to thousands of building projects, ranging from multi-million pound new-build schemes, to small-scale fit out works.
Our MD, Steve, made the visit and presented co-founder, Peter Shattock, with a cased bottle of Silent Pool gin as a thank you, to mark the occasion.
“I remember when we first met Peter. We’d moved into our first office in Bagshot. We’d built the walls and fitted out the meeting room and needed the work to be formally approved. GSA were recommended to us, and they provided a great service. A couple of years later, they’d grown their business to a point where they needed someone to look after their IT, and they gave us a call.
That’s the great thing about doing business locally – you meet nice people and make friends with them. Then, when the timing is right, they become your customer. No need to ‘cold call’ anyone or try and sell all the time. Do the right thing and everything works out!”
Peter was delighted with the gift and said,
“10 Years – doesn’t time fly! Projectfive remains a great partner to our business, we really feel that we get a small company personalised level of service from what is now quite a big company. Many companies fail to deliver this sort of level of service as they grow with their own success, but I’ve very pleased to say that is not the case with projectfive. Great company, great people, thanks for everything and here’s to another 10 years.”
“We really like working with GSA. They’ve been a great customer over the last 10 years. Always pleased to see us and keen to thank the techies when they’ve done a good job. We’re looking forward to the next 10 years, too!”
Happy 10th Anniversary, GSA!
p.s Because we’ve only just come up with this idea, we know we’ve got customers who’ve sailed past their 10th anniversary, and we missed it! Don’t worry… we’ll be there to celebrate with you when your 15th anniversary comes around 🙂
