Tech company renovates new space
A growing software company has completed a renovation of its new office in Grand Rapids.
SalesPad said yesterday it formally finished work on its new 30,000-square-foot office at the three-story Atrium Building, at 3351 Claystone St. SE.
Its office is on the top floor and the main floor.
The software company’s lease was one of the main reasons for the building’s renovation, as SalesPad CEO Pete Eardley is one of the partners in the building’s ownership group, Atrium Partners.
With 97 employees, SalesPad outgrew its previous 17,000-square-foot space in Eaglecrest Office Park, at 3200 Eagle Park Dr.
With a new cloud product set for launch, SalesPad President Matt Williams said this should be the company's office for the foreseeable future.
“Our consistent growth over the last thirteen years has resulted in quite a few moves,” Williams said. “The new office marks a significant milestone for us. It allows us to continue growing our team and offer a more cohesive work environment that supports collaboration between employees and customers, inspires creativity and boosts productivity.
“It also allows us to facilitate more software trainings, workshops and demonstrations.”
The company currently has open positions listed at its website.
Nearly all interior walls were removed on the top floor, creating four workspaces and a central gathering area. Wireless audio-visual equipment was installed in all conference rooms, and office furniture was included from Grand Rapids-based West Michigan Office Interiors and Grand Rapids-based Custer.
A 40-person training center is also included.
The office features custom artwork, a restaurant-style soda machine and a shuffleboard table.
The exterior of the building is also receiving a complete landscape overhaul.
SalesPad has created enterprise distribution software since 2004 and will launch SalesPad Cloud this summer.
“We took the key operational ERP elements from our desktop solution and made them available to even more businesses by moving to the cloud,” said Jeremy Boogaart, VP of business development, SalesPad.
