Invotra have been honoured in the Digital Leaders 100 list

‘The 2015 Digital Leaders 100 list honours the highest digital achievements from across the UK’s public, private and non-profit sectors, celebrating individuals and organisations who are leveraging digital to transform the UK’s public services and its social and economic opportunities’

We’re thrilled to be short-listed for 3 awards.  The Digital Leaders programme received 700 applications at the beginning of the year, so being in the final 100 is an achievement worth celebrating.  Winning would be the icing on the cake after a very busy year of project delivery.

The right apprentice & trailblazing SaaS application - a match made in heaven


As the elections loom and the key political parties advocate their differing manifestos, one of the elements that there isn’t too much of a disparity on is their recognition on the value of Apprenticeships.

With The Conservative Party wanting to create another 3 million apprenticeships, & Labour endeavouring to encourage an equal number of apprenticeships as university applicants within the next decade it’s immense validation regardless of who you support.

More than just an Intranet

Having come from a marketing agency background I was used to understanding clients requirements quickly and developing campaigns on the fly.  So, getting to know Invotra wasn’t going to be a problem...famous last words.

Understanding ‘the product’, it’s an Intranet...tick, it’s open source...tick, it helps internal communicators and employee engagement...tick tick… Then I think, ‘but what’s Invotra’s USP?’.

The question that can make professional’s shudder.

Invotra Class 2014/15

Invotra class of 2014 / 15

We’re so proud that our Apprentices are part of a group of trail blazers!  We’ve always been proud of them, but now we are SUPER proud, prouder than Mr Proud from Proud world.  Why? Because they will have their day and be recognised in front of family and friends like all other academic students.  No longer will ‘Apprenticeships’, look like the ‘Degrees’ slightly down trodden relative!

Ok, ok, stop it, thats not the Bacon you’re now thinking of, and no it’s not that guy on the EE advert. The man responsible for this quote is in fact; Francis Bacon, an English philosopher, inclusive of many other facets to his name, one of which being a Viscount!

Big changes for HMRC software updates and applications

In June 2014, as part of a HMRC’s Intranet replacement project, Invotra worked with the Digital Communications Team to tailor the publishing process, in order to improve the way HMRC manuals are maintained.

For (probably much needed!) reference, manuals contain guidance prepared for HM Revenue & Customs staff. The department publish these for taxpayers and their advisors, in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Working with workflows

Workflow is a common term that’s thrown around in business. Many people are scared of the mere thought of trying to iron out a workflow, and start asking questions such as ‘How do I account for such a magnitude of people?’, ‘How do I align every step of this process to work for everyone?’, ‘How do I make sure people follow the process in the first place?!’. It’s at this point you need to stop yourself and begin thinking about the most important factor around workflows in general. The answer: simplicity.

Lost without digital

For many of us, young and well, older lets say, growing up meant that we would use a number of tried and practiced methods for helping us as individuals get by on a daily basis. If this meant relying on an arranged time to meet someone or reading a map in order to get from one location to another, it worked...ish. This time will seem not so long ago, and part of us will miss the sense of achievement certain aspects that way of life gave us.
