Godel on target to achieve £5 million sales revenue by 2015
Manchester-based ‘nearshorer’ Godel today announced that revenues grew by 20% year on year in FY2012 as the company grew its UK based salesforce, made significant investment into its second software development centre and continued to invest in Minsk, Belarus to cater to demand.
Revenues grew from £2 million at December 31, 2011 to £2.4 million at December 31, 2012. The company has ambitious plans to hit revenues of £5 million by 2015, and sees no reason why that wouldn’t happen.
“It’s been another outstanding year for trading at Godel as we continue our strategy of growth and investing back into the business – we’ve seen no let up in demand at all,” explains Neil Turvin, chief executive, Godel.
“We’ve invested significantly in our second software development centre in Belarus which is helping us manage the demand for our nearshore software development services from many high profile clients as well as doubling employee numbers in the UK in sales and marketing as well as in recruitment and HR.
“Over 70% of Godel’s business comes via referal – a fact we’re very proud of and one that continues unabaited during the current recession. Our steady growth aligns with our decision to only work with clients on projects which are regarded as mission-critical.
“The clients who work with us take advantage of our high quality technology expertise which they find difficult to source in the UK but are also able to make cost savings from nearshoring part of their software development delivery which means that their return on investment and speed of deployment is enhanced – we’re large enough to scale, but small enough to care.”
Godel has added a high profile list of clients in the last twelve months including; Tesco, Optionis, The Co-operative Group, Aveva, Earthport, Morson Group, iMeta, SIG, CSL – the sofa specialist, MITIE Group and CACI
Nearshoring is becoming the prefered method for sourcing hard-to-find technology expertise for company’s in the UK. Minsk provides a two hour time difference, staff who speak fluent English and have a hungry ethos to work with English companies whilst being excellent problem solvers and talented software engineers.
