ICEconsult has moved

On the 27th of May ICEconsult‘s headquarters in Iceland moved to a new office in Bæjarháls 1, 110 Reykjavík.

The new offices are more spacious and more suitable to ICEconsult‘s needs. They contain more meeting rooms, more space for each department to grow and now all of ICEconsult‘s departments are located on the same floor.

ICEconsult chose an open office setting for the new headquarters, since it is known to encourage communication and informal collaboration beween employees. The open office setting makes it easier to expand and will also be less expensive to maintain, whereas maintenance and renovation costs will be kept at a minimum.

MainManager‘s success leads to second place in Fastest Growing Company Award

On 3rd of May the minister of education, science and culture handed ICEconsult the the Federation of Icelandic Industries award „Vaxtasprotinn 2012“ (e. The startup 2012) for being the second fastest growing company in its size catecory in Iceland.

The main milestone on the path to getting this award is the release of MainManager Version 10, which enabled MainManager to be full-fledged, fully web based FM software. Things are now moving fast in Denmark, Norway and UK and we expect to add Sweden and Australia soon. The MainManager team is growing slowly but surely, and the count is now close to 40.

We are now working on many extremely exiting new features. Among those is new workflow oriented user-interface that will increase visibility and productivity. This addition is planned to be included in the release this fall. MainManager will be present on EuroFM 2013. Be sure to visit our booth to get a sneak and peek of the exiting new features.
