Global Success Beckons for Local HI-Tech Company

Mar 28, 2006

Invest Northern Ireland is helping a small, local internet and e-business consultancy to become a specialist provider of software solutions that will trade in global markets.

With Invest NI’s support, Fluent Technology has launched “Origin”, its innovative, web-based decision support software in the UK and Europe. Origin is a user-friendly statistical information management system that allows policy makers, researchers and analysts to store, share and scrutinise data in a straightforward manner that enables them to make stronger and more informed decisions.

“Northern Ireland needs to build up a stock of new businesses that are developing pioneering technology and have global sales potential,” says Donal Durkan, Invest NI’s Director of Creative and Design-based Industries.

“The team behind Fluent Technology has shown a high level of entrepreneurial skills, the ability to manage risk and the appetite for rapid growth. Invest Northern Ireland is eager to help the company with marketing and product development to help it achieve its ambitious plans.”

It is anticipated that the company will create five new, high-quality jobs by the end of 2006.

David Cordner, Business Development Director of Fluent Technology, says: “We have identified a gap in the market for a data warehousing product specifically tailored to assist both local government and corporate users in making informed decisions”

“Invest NI’s support has allowed us to accelerate product development and employ a dedicated sales and marketing executive to pursue and exploit the substantial global market opportunities.  We’re confident that within 12 months we will have achieved our growth projections.”
