Intact Software Plans to Expand into US by 2013
Intact Software, (Dundalk, Ireland) a pioneering developer of business management software, has announced ambitious expansion plans to establish the company as a global brand with the introduction of its new software solution, Intact IQ, to an international market.
Aggressively positioning itself in the UK, Nordics, Australia, New Zealand and Middle East, Intact Software intends to enter the US and Canada in 2013 and aims to quadruple its turnover by 2014.
INtact Software already has a strong presence in Ireland, UK, Malta and Cyprus, with over 2,000 customers incorporating sites ranging from 5 to 200 users. The international expansion is being fully funded internally by Intact Software.
Intact Software CEO, Paul Marry, comments: “We have chosen these markets because of the current and continued growth relating to business management software within the SME sector. With significant opportunities within each of these geographical markets, we are currently in negotiations with potential channel partners in each of these regions. Many of our partners are burdened with inadequate software offerings that are incapable of meeting the exact needs of end users, are costly and time consuming to implement and in-flexible towards on-site tailoring and alterations. What attracted partners to Intact Software were the genuine financial, increased time availability, productivity and flexibility benefits our products offer them.”
Intact Software is reinforcing the expansion with a serious recruitment drive and intends to increase staff numbers by over 25%to drive the company’s international growth. To oversee its UK expansion, software veteran Geoff Thompson will join the Intact Software team as Business Development Manager.
The company’s international expansion plans follow the successful launch of its Intact iQ software, a highly tailorable business management solution that can be delivered and implemented up to five times faster than comparable competitors.
Marry added: “Intact iQ has been created as a direct result of feedback on key requirements from our customers and the industry as a whole. Exceeding all end-user requirements, Intact IQ eliminates the need for numerous isolated systems and service providers. The software will never need to be replaces as it will scale and grow alongside a customer’s business. The beauty of Intact iQ is that it can be customised onsite through the Intact iQ Agility tool without the need for lengthy and costly development procedures. This flexible and scalable approach ensures that standard related downtime is eliminated for both end users and our channel partners. Intact iQ is very much based around the principle of ‘Single Investment – A Solution for Life’, and this is exactly what we provide and intend to aggressively introduce to a global market.”
