Local Software Firm Expands With Support From Invest Northern Ireland

Sep 14, 2006

Local IT firm Stiona Software Ltd based in Belfast has announced a recent expansion with support from Invest Northern Ireland.

The expansion will allow the company to design sophisticated IT systems tailored to individual client needs within Northern Ireland and avoid the high costs associated when working with a client directly on-site.

It will also create eight high quality professional IT jobs that will double the company’s current workforce.

Commenting on the planned expansion company Director Jason Malone said:

“We have managed to build a strong client base and now need this additional element of the business to fully exploit our exporting potential. With the new team of software developers we intend to employ we will be able to take on larger client projects and increase our competitiveness.”

Invest Northern Ireland has offered the company financial assistance of £62,680 towards the total project costs.

Congratulating the company on the expansion Maurice Patterson, Regional Manager of Invest NI’s Eastern local office said:

“This project represents a significant development in the growth of a local firm which has strong exporting capability. In helping Stiona to expand we are helping the company to develop the extra edge that will allow them to win more customers outside of NI and stay one step ahead of their competitors.”

Set up in 2004 the company has implemented large scale IT solutions for blue chip companies including Halifax Bank of Scotland.
