We live in a fast-paced world and people’s attention spans are a lot smaller in the Digital Age. If you have a lot of documents to display on your website, it can make your website run slower, which could mean the loss of potential clients – both because they may get bored, but also because a slow-loading website can damage your performance in search engine rankings, meaning fewer people find your business. Customer IDRsolutions, based at our Churchill Square Business Centre in Kings Hill, makes it easy to display documents without clogging up your website, giving you speedy loading times.

How it started  

IDRsolutions was founded in 1999 by Mark Stephens: ‘We now employ 12 people and have over 200 clients worldwide including US/UK governments, Pearson education, Jive, Zinio and many small businesses. Customers include other software companies, banks, aerospace companies, publishers – anyone with documents they need to display. 

‘Jpedal, our first product, was a PDF library to help software companies work with PDF files, which we were very proud to license to Adobe for use in its ColdFusion product. BuildVu, our latest product, is a toolkit to convert PDF and office documents into high-quality HTML5 for easy integration and display in portals, websites, software application in any browser on PC, Mac, tablet and phone. If you have lots of documents to display, you need our software!’ 

Finding a new home  

When IDRsolutions was looking for new business accommodation, a CapitalSpace office in Kings Hill was a natural choice: ‘With its quiet, high-quality offices and fast internet, it suited our needs. After previous experiences, easy parking and good transport links were also very important. We were also really impressed with the efforts the Kings Hill team made to welcome and accommodate the IDRsolutions team. Since moving in, we have come to really value the Kings Hill business accommodation team, who helped us set up a second office and are always trying to help and anticipate our needs. 

‘We never feel like tenants and regard Kings Hill as our home. We have met lots of other residents in the kitchens, and the summer barbecue and charity cake sales are must-attend events. We are very happy here and we have loads of options to grow the business, so I think this will be our home for a long time to come.’ 

IDRsolutions have a wide range of clients who have are obviously very impressed with their products they provide with many testimonials on their website, such as: ‘Awesome product and even better customer service.’
