A CO Tyrone tech company is to quadruple its workforce this year as it looks to increase its presence within the global pharmaceutical industry.

Visiblegy Limited, which is already working with one of the top 20 global pharma companies, is recruiting 11 staff in 2019 as part of expansion plans into the multi-billion pound industry.

The start-up, based at Omagh Enterprise Centre in Gortrush Industrial Estate provides solutions to the healthcare industry to deliver insights that will lead to patients getting better treatment outcomes across diverse health profiles.

The business' software platform XLens delivers insights which support the effective launch of new drugs into the marketplace.

Speaking about the expansion Visiblegy director, Mark Bradley said:

“Our software platform 'XLens' is aimed at eliminating the billions of dollars of revenue leakage that the pharma industry experiences when new products are launched onto the marketplace. We have received encouraging feedback from customers to date and are aiming to generate further sales over the coming months."

The new jobs, two of which are already in place, cover a range of positions including software programming, marketing, sales and managerial roles.

The major investment is being supported by Invest NI and the body's western regional manager, Ethna McNamee hailed the announcement of new jobs as "very positive news" for the local area.

“Visiblegy is an impressive young business with high growth potential. The significant export contract secured in its first year of trading is a valuable endorsement of the importance of its technology to the global pharmaceutical industry," she said.

"We are committed to helping this business achieve its targets and maximise the global opportunities which exist for its innovative technology.”
