large-scale projects frequently run over time and over budget. This is partly because
current technologies are unable to handle the large quantities of associated data
in user-friendly ways. BOXARR takes a different approach. The small but global
software company develops solutions for mapping complex interdependent systems
that enable its customers to make faster, more efficient decisions. Since 2016,
BOXARR has benefited from the Royal Academy of Engineering’s SME Leaders programme,
which has provided the team with leadership training and support at an
important stage in the company’s growth.
Specialist workshops and training offered by the SME Leaders programme have helped to build the team’s leadership skills. This has included coaching support in finance, a critical area for a business in the scale-up phase.BOXARR solutions are currently used within the aerospace and defence industry, with clients such as Boeing and Airbus. As the company expands into new sectors, several directors and managers at BOXARR have benefited from being connected to a valuable network of experts at the Academy. Access to training in communication skills has also helped with fundraising and reaching new sales contacts.
By supporting the development of its leaders, BOXARR is better positioned to engage with new markets as the company grows. Its software platforms bring together large quantities of data in one place so that companies can model, visualise and analyse operations. As a result, BOXARR solutions could have a significant impact on large-scale infrastructure projects, a high-value, global industry.
“There’s no longer a need to accept the inefficiencies of the tools we currently use for complex projects,” Alasdair notes. “BOXARR offers innovative ways to model and plan complex challenges and improve the way we create solutions in the future.”
