Software development company Tascomi is set to create at least 10 jobs as part of a strategy to increase its foothold in the English and Welsh markets in a expansion plan backed with £600,000 from the Growth Loan Fund.

Tascomi specialises in providing web based software solutions for local authorities across the UK and Ireland. Its solutions are used in the electronic management of services such as public protection, building control licensing and citizen engagement.

“Last year we expanded our business into Wales and England, securing a major contract with the Welsh Purchasing Consortium, including up to 19 local authorities in Wales,” said MD Richard Martin.

“We now hold a 35 per cent share of the Welsh market. This year we would like to penetrate these markets further.The business has gone from strength to strength and we feel the time is right to add to our exceptionally talented workforce.”

Looking ahead Dr Martin said: “Canada is another market that we have been looking closely at breaking in to. We have plans to attend trade shows over there in the next quarter which we hope can help us build good contacts. We are an ambitious company with aspirations to expand into new markets. We’ll also be launching a new piece of planning solutions software later this year.”

Jenna Mairs, investment manager at WhiteRock Capital Partners, said: “Tascomi is an exciting local company with plans to take its solutions around the world.

“Richard and his team are committed to continually developing their products and are the kind of company the Growth Loan Fund is keen to support.”
