ENTERPRISE Minister Arlene Foster has congratulated Lisburn-based IT specialists, the Xperience Group, on recent export successes and growth through acquisitions.
During a visit to the company, the Minister heard how the Xperience Group has won new contracts worth over £100,000 within the construction industry in Glasgow and London.
The company has grown significantly over the last few years as a result of acquisitions and now employs around 90 staff in Lisburn, Peterborough and at a recently opened office in Glasgow.
“Xperience has taken a strategic approach to building key areas of expertise and successfully establishing itself as an expert IT provider within the UK marketplace,” said Mrs Foster.
“In achieving this it has been supported by Invest Northern Ireland which helped it to develop a three-year growth strategy, improve the skills of its employees and strengthen its technical infrastructure.”
The company’s success is the result of developing innovative software modules targeting the construction and service sectors and proving, said Mrs Foster, the existence of “opportunities for ambitious and focused local businesses.”
Director Patrick Leggett said: “We have a clear and targeted approach to growing our business through new technologies and have developed specific core software applications and cloud computing expertise.”
“The role that technology plays within the administration and efficiency of any business is set to rise and we want to significantly increase our share of this market across these islands.”
