Yorkshire’s Art of Cloud has doubled its turnover and staff numbers over the last 12 months.

The Horsforth-based Salesforce and CRM consultant says its revenue doubled to £750k and it’s now targeting £1.5m for the year ahead.

At the same time its staff numbers increased from 15 to 30.

“People have become used to doing almost everything online, and this trend will only increase in 2021,” explained Art of Cloud CEO Ben Stevenson.

“By helping clients to implement cloud based solutions, we support them in operating completely remotely from anywhere in the world. Servicing our clients remotely and allowing them to service customers online has been paramount to our success in 2020.”

Among its clients are Rolls Royce, GHD and Formula-E.

“One of our biggest challenges through COVID was that our team wasn’t getting together to bounce ideas off each other over a beer or a game of Mario Kart,” he added.

"The way we remedied that was to set up virtual coffee rooms through Google Meet. Which you can dip in and out of as you would any other room to have a chat with people in there or bounce an idea off someone.”
