Origination CRM has always been proud of the fact that as a business we can combine tradition, history and experience with fresh, modern ideas and up-to-the-minute technologies.
These characteristics have shone through not only in our staff culture and work practices, but also in our beautiful building at 9 Birkenhead Street.
Those staff, clients and friends who have come to work with and visit us over the last 24 years have often remarked on the wonderful ambience of the old building, with its exposed brickwork, high ceilings and funky art deco furnishings.
It was therefore with no small measure of sadness that we received the news that our landlord wanted to renovate the building and that we had to move on.
We have however managed to secure a fantastic new building just around the corner in North Fitzroy, which also has exposed brickwork, high ceilings, and some wonderful opportunities for us to revamp our working spaces and mix things up a bit. They say change is as good as a holiday!
As expected, the move itself was not without its challenges. Knocking through walls, rearranging telecommunications services, sifting through a quarter century worth of memories, archives and relics, and deciding how best to set up our new home were but a few of the tasks keeping us all very busy.
But of course through all of this the show must go on, and there was a fair amount of blood, sweat and tears devoted to keeping our core business working smoothly while our physical offices were disassembled and rebuilt around us.
We are happy to say that we have now settled comfortably into our new abode and we look forward to a long and prosperous residence at 141 St Georges Road, North Fitzroy.
