Fast start to 2014
InFX Solutions has attracted some of the very best talent in the area and doubled its team over the past twelve months, adding new team members to all areas of the business; this first month of the year we have taken on another six... and we are still looking for more! Over the past six months we have doubled the number of software developers on the team; who can now deal with ever greater challenging opportunities that come our way. Last year we set up our new Design and Creative department who along with our Marketing Services team will continue to deliver focused user experiences with leading edge designs. With this expansion we have now taken all of the office space on the three upper floors vacated by Hastings Media Centre at 17-19 Robertson Street.
A quick refresh
We have a new website coming this year which will blow you away but while you're waiting for that, we've given our current site a refresh and hope you like the update, let us know!

InFX become Carbon Neutral
200 Tonnes offset. From 2013 we have committed to planting trees each year to offset our Carbon footprint completely. We feel this is very important for our business and the environment. We already use the highest specification hardware to minimise hardware requirements and reduce electricity usage but this move puts us ahead of our calculated 160T per annum with 200 Trees planted in 2013 alone. Every September we will re-calculate our carbon footprint and plant more trees than we have used carbon per tonne!
