We look at life as a series of adventures that excite and thrill, while expanding knowledge and maybe creating new stuff, in business it’s the same, here are some of the adventures we’ve been on and some we’re still on.
Since 2006 RockRoland has worked with Legacy.com the worlds leading Obituary hosting company. The task was to explore the viability of Legacy’s services outside North America. During the time working together we successfully introduced the product to the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. Later facilitating acquisitions which extended services into France, Germany Poland and Italy then further growing the business into Spain and Denmark. Continued research into expansion into other markets such as India and Africa, were undertaken too.
As the markets changed RockRoland also managed the sale of parts of the business to streamline operations. Legacy continues to grow and the International business remains an important and valuable contributor to that growth.
Rental yields rise and fall. Landlords want their property occupied at the best possible return and tenants want to rent the best property their money can buy. Bidomo.com is a site that seeks to meet both those desires but allowing bidding to take place on rental properties, meaning that the landlord achieves occupancy at the best available rent and tenants get the property they want at the price they are prepared to pay. Bidomo is a RockRoland business.
