A decade ago, Colin Bryce embarked on a journey fueled by a passion for tech and a vision for a more collaborative, secure and sustainable way of working, which led to the creation of Cobry.
Having worked in a variety of roles, including education, engineering, and finance, Colin experienced the limitations of traditional technology solutions and recognised the future in cloud-based technology, and more specifically Google Cloud.
Today, as we celebrate Cobry’s 10-year anniversary, we take great pride in our transformative partnership with Google and our commitment to empowering businesses to thrive in the digital landscape. Read on to find out more about Cobry and our evolution.
Embracing the Google Cloud Technology
When Cobry was founded in 2013, the Cloud was still unfamiliar and scary, and many businesses were unsure of this new technology. However, Colin’s vision was clear - Google Cloud technology held the key to the future. He saw its ability to enhance collaboration and streamline processes for businesses. Google Workspace and its ease of use provided the ideal foundation for companies to focus on what’s important for their strategy and growth rather than resolving technical issues.
As Cobry grew, we started adding more services to our offering, including the Cobry Compass: our pathway to unlocking data-driven success and enabling organisations to make informed decisions.
Creating a Thriving Environment
We take pride in not only being at the forefront of technological advancements but also in creating an environment that nurtures our team.
Colin's vision for Cobry extended beyond technology. Having experienced various work environments throughout his career, he was determined to create a company culture that prioritised the well-being of its employees.
Cobry is a place where everyone is encouraged to grow, learn, and contribute their unique talents. We have numerous incentives for our employees, including:
- A 4-day work week
- Remote-first working
- Tea and coffee subscriptions
- Cobry book purchase scheme
- Enhanced sick pay
- Support for carers, among others
In addition, Cobry believes in providing opportunities for young people from all backgrounds. Every year, we welcome new interns and apprentices, allowing them to learn and develop skills, gain experience in a highly desirable field and earn professional qualifications.
Celebrating Our Achievements
As we look back on the past ten years, we celebrate the numerous milestones we have achieved along the way. We have helped more than 450 businesses transform, improve their efficiency, and embrace new ways of working.
With the same passion and enthusiasm that fueled our beginning, we move forward, embracing the ever-evolving landscape of technology. Being a trusted Google partner remains our focus, together with delivering innovative solutions and driving success for our clients.
“It’s surreal for me to think that we’ve been in business for a decade now - but we’ve only reached that milestone thanks to our amazing team and customers. Even though it’s been ten years, it still feels like we’re just getting started. The next decade is going to be even more exciting!”
