A TECHNOLOGY firm based in Bewdley has bounced back after its offices were severely flooded in February and, thanks to business booming during the pandemic, has just taken on new staff.

Inturi Technology Solutions, now based at Bewdley Business Centre, has seen demand for their services rise exponentially since the coronavirus outbreak as more people started working from home.

CEO Clare Kays said: "We were flooded severely in Bewdley in both February and March and our riverside location, although historically unaffected, was this year.

"The Environment Agency would not let us back into building forcing us to look for alternative options, so we had two months without a base but were very fortunate to secure larger premises at Bewdley Business Centre which have since proved to be more advantageous.

"It was a disconcerting time for many of us."

Inturi is a Microsoft technology partner and was able to help companies adapt quickly to remote working and took on several new clients during the first lockdown.

The company can licence, install and configure Microsoft Dynamics 365 for both online and on-premises installations.

To help cope with the surge in demand for tech solutions, Inturi has hired two new employees - marketing manager Zoe Foster, who moved back to the area from Oxford, and local resident Callum Jones.

Clare added: "The damage was extensive to our office from the flooding so we are so proud to take on new employees this autumn.”
