A Round up of 2012

by Katherine

Firstly Happy New Year from the team at Codify!  2012 was a busy year for us including welcoming nine new customers and seven new team members.  This included the return of Lisa Thomson who previously worked for us as Project Delivery Manager.  Lisa left in 2009 with a move into academia before re-joining us as Operations Director. 

Codify also continued its support for growing talent in Aberdeen by taking on a new placement student from Aberdeen University and two secondary school pupils for a week of work experience.  In addition we continued to sponsor the Computer Science class prize for the Robert Gordon University (RGU) and sponsored a team from RGU to travel to Ireland where they came 2nd in an international programming competition.  Encouraging talent is something we are proud of at Codify and a number of our team have come to us as graduates or worked for us on a university placement.

2012 also saw the launch of MAX Business Software, our sister company, who are developing an off-the-shelf business management system, complete with SAGE integration, targeted at small to medium companies. 

For Graeme, our Managing Director, October meant a trip to Redmond the home of Microsoft to attend the annual Build conference.  Build is aimed at developers and allowed Graeme to gain a wealth of knowledge and insight into the latest features and direction of the technologies we use.  The generous Microsoft also gave all delegates a pre-launch version of the Nokia Lumia 900 phone and a Microsoft Surface tablet!  Needless to say Graeme became the envy of the team on his return to the Aberdeen.

December brought the Christmas party which didn't fail to disappoint with inventive secret Santa gifts and a Christmas themed challenge.  We seem to be a very imaginative bunch at Codify with very thoughtful gifts given.  Highlights include Louise's annual Robbie Williams calendar (thoroughly defaced with moustaches) and Peter's homemade Lego kit of a Codify software developer, complete with instructions and Codify logo.

This year's team challenge was to decorate a gingerbread man in the style of a fellow employee and the winner was decided on likeness and creativity.

The results were very impressive although some were slightly scary!

We are looking forward to an equally exciting year ahead here at Codify and would like to wish all our customers, suppliers and friends a happy and prosperous 2013.
