It was inevitable. Eventually, just about every successful company has to take the leap and uproot and move its office. For a growing company like ours, moving to a bigger office space is almost a rite of passage and is a commitment to our employees, partners, and customers that Crank's story is evolving and our future is bright. Our new office has space for us to double in size, and we plan to make full use of that.
But moving can be daunting. With so many logistics to manage and the potential for things to go wrong, we've put countless hours into planning and anticipating to minimize any disruption to our customers and our business.
Tomorrow is the big day! We have bins stacked high full of beloved desk essentials, all anxiously awaiting their new, bright, beautiful home.
So, why did we have to move?
Simply put, we've run out of room! This is a good thing. We've been growing to better serve our customers and to continue to evolve Storyboard to make it the best possible GUI development framework for embedded UI designers and developers. Not just good, but the best.
We've been joking over the past couple of months that any additional Crankonauts (Crank Software employees) would have to work in the washroom, server room, or coat closet. The idea of double-decker office spaces was floated and, rightfully so, shot down. We've completely outgrown our boardroom and lunchroom. We've been having meetings wherever we can find space. It's been getting harder to find places to put our bikes. Time to move!
Also, the new office is closer to the mountain bike trails.
How does the move affect our customers and partners?
We are working hard to minimize any potential disruption. The move will happen tomorrow and it will be business as usual on Monday. We will still be responding to calls and emails promptly during the move. Our phone number and email address remain unchanged:
Our shipping address change is effective immediately, so please update your records with our new contact information:
