Having rebranded from Software Box in 2020, this York-based software licensing specialist now has its sights set on achieving B-Corporation status, which recognises firms for balancing profit with purpose. Headed up by industry stalwart Phil Doye, the MoD supplier clocked up revenues of £238.3m in calendar 2020 (a 16 per cent pro-rated rise on the previous 16-month period). A recruitment drive pinched its bottom line, however, as net profits fell to £1m (compared with £2.4m in the previous period).
