BELFAST SOFTWARE FIRM WILL DOUBLE WORKFORCE AFTER £1MILLION INVESTMENT AND SURGE IN CUSTOMER DEMAND

WorkPal, a mobile workforce management software company, has welcomed an influx of new business as more firms seek better communication solutions

A Belfast-headquartered software company will double its workforce over the next two years to meet unprecedented demand for its unique communication software product which allows businesses to communicate effectively and efficiently in remote working setups.

The decision to grow the firm and invest heavily in all areas of the company came after increased demand for WorkPal.

WorkPal is a powerful mobile workforce management software tool which is revolutionising how businesses operate in increasingly remote working setups. It replaces traditional methods for keeping track of teams and operations with software that streamlines the arduous processes of times gone by.

The investment will allow WorkPal to double its team to over 50 employees in the next two years. The jobs will span software development, consultancy and technical support roles that will allow a larger team to reach even more clients locally, nationally and internationally.

To complement the recruitment drive, WorkPal has injected £250,000 into a marketing campaign that will strategically target new customers and expose the new way businesses can work and communicate effectively when working remotely.

This will help grow the existing client base that spans over 500 businesses here and abroad.

Ian Megahey, Sales Director at WorkPal said: “Our customer base has grown rapidly this year as significant numbers of businesses actively look for innovative ways of communicating with their teams in increasingly remote working setups that have otherwise been foreign to their usual way of working. 

“As a result of this new demand, we attracted a huge boost in customers, from not just local nations but globally so we have invested £1million and embarked on a recruitment campaign to double our workforce in a programme that will allow that growth to continue at the speed and vigour it’s at now. 

“We have also invested because while we believe remote working is a by-product of the current pandemic, it is very much going to be a legacy of it too. The quick move into lockdown earlier in the year has made us all aware of how important it is to be adaptable and have the right tools onboard.” 

Set up in 2011, WorkPal’s most recent financial results for 2019 show a turnover of £3million. This year those sales are expected to be in excess of £5million.

Mr Megahey continued: “We have just completed our golden quarter with Q3 of 2020 representing our best ever performing financial period. We’ve seen the uptake of WorkPal surge by almost 350% during the last year alone but we are confident that a new realisation of keeping communication tight among workplaces is key no matter what the social and economic climate.”

WorkPal is part of the Barclay Communications Group, which has been at the forefront of business-to-business mobile, hosted and fixed-line telecoms for more than 20 years.
