About Phew

Where did the name Phew come from?

21 years ago, our Managing Director, Matthew, started a company with the aim to make some truly inspiring websites and systems, whilst providing a premium customer service. That is still the case, but over time, it has also evolved into an organisation that creates sector-focused digital products that enable organisations to manage processes better, unlock data, and improve outcomes. In this video, Matthew explains how he came up with the name ‘Phew’.
