Boston — Paperless Parts, the leading sales and quoting platform for custom part manufacturers, today announced the opening of their new headquarters in Boston, MA. Recognizing that continuous momentum is critical when growing a startup, Paperless Parts is investing in a collaborative and productive office environment that fosters teamwork and motivation. With the team size tripling over the last 18 months, and plans to grow another 3x over the next 18 months, creating a space for the team to come together is more important than ever.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced companies into a remote working environment over the past year, and while employees learned how to be productive from home, Paperless Parts believes that the movement for businesses to go fully remote is short-sighted and could have a long-term negative impact on the team and the culture of the organization. There is a misconception that working from home will provide a better work-life balance. The reality is that working from home has removed boundaries for many employees and has resulted in working longer hours and feeling isolated from the team and mission. With the new office opening, Paperless Parts employees are finding a new source of energy, inspiration and drive for the work they do every day.
“At Paperless Parts, we are continuously innovating, and nothing replaces in-person conversations and brainstorms,” said Shannon Sullivan, Account Executive at Paperless Parts. “What I enjoy most about being back in the office is high fiving a teammate after a call goes well; it really gets me fired up. It is electric when someone closes a deal and rings the bell—there is nothing like it. This newfound energy makes me want to come to work and really show up every single day.”
The new office not only provides Paperless Parts employees with an environment for collaboration and growth but was also built with its customers in mind. Over the last 12 months, the company has grown its customer base by 10x, and a key ingredient for this success is forming strong relationships built on trust.
“At Paperless Parts, we believe that relationships matter. In order to build really good lasting relationships with colleagues and customers, in-person interaction is critical,” said Jason Ray, Co-Founder & CEO of Paperless Parts. “We have invested in a new office because it is important for new employees to be immersed in our culture and our passion, and to feel a sense of belonging immediately. Providing our team with a reason to be more excited to come to work has a huge influence on the success of the company. Ten percent more excitement and commitment from 50 people is the equivalent of adding 5 more people to the team.”
The new office provides the following benefits for employees:
- Open-concept floor plan for easy collaboration and organic conversation
- Multiple rooms for larger meetings and areas to focus
- Hot desks for those who decide to come into the office a few days a week
- Snacks, coffee, and beer on tap
- Located across from North Station and TD Garden in the heart of Boston’s West End
The investment in new office space is an example of the company’s continued drive to break down barriers and make a difference for its employees and customers. With the company’s hybrid approach, employees of Paperless Parts have the flexibility to work from home and come into the office.
