North East based software innovator Excelpoint has undertaken a brand review and unveiled a new corporate brand identity and website thanks to funding from NBSL.

The new brand identity reflects Excelpoint’s commitment to achieving its vision of empowering organisations worldwide to create efficient enterprise-wide business systems and workflows. With a global client base, Excelpoint is further expanding its reach and entering new sectors nationally – knowing that their business model can compete on both cost and service – two vital ingredients of the brand.

To reflect this, a new strapline has been introduced, “smarter software solutions” to represent the commitment and experience the team brings to the world of digital transformation.

Excelpoint have accessed grant support from business support agency NBSL via the North East Business Support Fund – which is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund - and were able to call upon creative services agency, Lemon Top, to develop a website and brand identity that reflects the core values, future strategy and enhanced customer experience.

The rebrand follows Excelpoint’s relocation of its head office to a new custom-designed state-of-the-art office within The Work Place on Aycliffe Business Park.

Ian Brown, Managing Director, commented: “The new website and brand identity come at a time when we are evolving as a business and expanding our global reach. Our new identity better reflects our market position in the no-code software sector and demonstrates the experience we bring to our customers across the world.”

Ian added, “It is an exciting time for Excelpoint as we continue to develop and grow as a business throughout this difficult time. We felt that now was the right time to invest in our marketing strategy to create a brand which will help us to achieve our strategic growth plans, and that reflects our market position in the no-code software sector.”

The business is leading the way in the no-code software sector, implementing solutions to realise cost savings, improve efficiency, enhance the customer experience, improve data accuracy, automate management reporting and drive employee engagement.

The Excelpoint technology has evolved over 25 years and drives the business processes of globally recognised brands including Minova Global, EDF Energy Cyclife, Mitie, Kaefer, NHS Trusts, Anglian Water, HMRC, Hanson, Balfour Beatty, NATS, Taylor Hobson and Denholm Industrial Services.

Jonathan Barnes, Funding Advisor for the project said: “Many businesses have used the last few months to bring in service providers to update their websites or review their strategic ambition to ensure their business models reflect the new normal. We’ve been delighted to support Excelpoint as they continue to grow their national – and international – customer base.
