Lisburn firm Xperience IT to invest £1.5m and create 16 jobs to increase sales

DIGITAL transformation specialist Xperience IT is to invest £1.5 million and create 16 jobs as part of plans to expand its business offering with a new IT service platform.

The Lisburn company provides cloud computing and managed IT services, as well as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) software to SMEs in the private sector.

Xperience IT, which has benefited from £96,000 of support from Invest NI towards the creation of the £40,000-a-year high quality IT and sales jobs, is aiming to increase its presence in the GB and Ireland construction sector with a new service platform.

It currently employs 90 people at offices in Lisburn, Peterborough and Glasgow.

Managing director Iain O’Kane said: “Our goal is to drive business efficiency through best-in-class digital transformation solutions.

“From engaging with our customers, we’ve identified a gap in the market for a management information tool for the construction industry. This will help it to increase efficiencies, speed up payments and manage purchasing over multiple sites.

“To embrace the opportunity to develop this new innovative product, we need to quickly grow our team and Invest Northern Ireland’s support will help us to achieve this.

“Our new staff will help us to develop the new platform and give us the capacity to secure new contracts with construction companies across GB and RoI, along with promoting our other products and services in these markets.

“Over the next three years, increasing our technical expertise will be critical to our growth and expansion strategy. We know that our people drive our business solutions, whether that be through trusted expertise or emerging talent, and our new team will be no different.”

George McKinney, director of technology & services at Invest NI, said: “Xperience IT is an ambitious company that has identified a new opportunity to grow in the construction sector.

“The competitive salaries on offer are testament to the impact and value the team will have within the company. Once in place, these jobs will contribute £670,000 in additional annual salaries for the economy.”
