Build It BetterJune 1, 2007

A sporty team from Enable based in Timothy’s Bridge Road recently found themselves up against some of the toughest physical and mental challenges the corporate world could throw at them.

Enable competed in ’The City Challenge’, a gruelling one-day team adventure. Enable was pitched against more than 50 teams, including some multinational giants such as Microsoft, Google, BT and Lloyds TSB.

With the impressive backdrop of Bletchley Park, Milton Keynes once famous for its wartime ’Enigma’ code breaking triumphs, Enable’s first task was to crack 16 codes in one hour. Alan Neill shone when it came to puzzle solving, earning his team precious time tokens. The teams fitness and physical endurance was also put to the test with an assignment to collect ’air time’ tickets and then tear around Campbell park on bikes, flying from one checkpoint to another in order to collect points.

Alan Neill, Enable Infomatrix Director commented, "Despite punctures and considering the might of the competition Enable achieved a fantastic 15th position overall. Thankfully we’d put in the hard yards running on Stratford’s Greenway and cycling up the Welcome Hills."

Jack Cantwell, Business Development Manager added, "This was a great team building event. We recommend other local businesses joining us next year."

The hardy foursome more accustomed to increasing their client’s productivity through implementing browser based business software, included Enable Informatrix Director, Alan Neill as well as Jack Cantwell, David Newman, and team captain Ewan Gibb.
