It’s our 10-year anniversary!
We have recently celebrated our 10-year anniversary as a company.
We would like to thank all of our clients and contacts for your support over the years.
How we began
OutserveWeb was founded in 2008 by Philip Oakley, who had identified a need among knowledge-based services for more integrated systems and wanted to help clients reap the benefits of working in the cloud. Phil says,
“On 16th July 2008, I started renting a desk at Wolverhampton University
– just me, a laptop and lots of big ideas!”
We are now based in Schott House at Astonfields, Stafford. OutserveWeb is a Partner with cloud accounting software company, Xero, inventory management software provider, Unleashed, and e-commerce platform, Shopify.
Managing Director, Philip Oakley, says,
“We now specialise in helping our clients to sell online, and our partnerships allow us to serve our clients even better with all the support they need.”
Our 10-year anniversary celebrations
In celebration of our 10-year anniversary, the whole team went out for a meal and some drinks at The Bod in Stafford. One of our team members also brought in a chocolate cake with candles.
OutserveWeb’s Marketing Manager, Rachel Robb, says,
“It was a fun day of celebrations and it was good to spend time together outside of work – and we should definitely have cake in the office more often!”
