As a child, Dean Benson was obsessed with figuring out how things work. It’s a fascination he still holds today and, combined with an entrepreneurial mind-set, has led to some insanely innovative ideas.
Throughout college and university Dean set-up multiple businesses, from software and programming to consultancy, but it wasn’t until 1998 that he launched multi-award-winning Visualsoft.
Visualsoft employs more than 200 people and creates solutions for over 1,000 retailers who want to build and grow their business online. As one of the UK’s pioneering digital agencies, they provide e- and m-commerce, online marketing services and support to a diverse range of traders from enterprise clients and high street chains, to boutiques and independent stores.
Famous for their bold spirit, the company has one polarising objective: ‘to empower retailers to give their customers the ultimate online shopping experience’.
It’s from this that Dean has been able to create a culture of exploration, excellence, and collaboration, where their working relationships make a real difference to both clients and the bottom line.
Such is the level of trust at Visualsoft that staff receive unlimited holidays, flexible working hours, free breakfasts, protein shakes, tea, coffee and fruit, alongside subsidised gym memberships; as long as they get their work done!
