Lisburn-based digital transformation specialist Xperience will be hiring IT and sales staff as part of its expansion plans.
Xperience, a digital transformation specialist based in Lisburn, is to invest more than £1.5m in a new IT service platform. As part of its expansion plans, 16 new IT and sales jobs will be created in Northern Ireland.
The company works with private-sector SMEs on cloud computing, managed services, enterprise resource planning and customer relationship management. Its clients span a variety of industries, from construction and facilities management to manufacturing and distribution.
Xperience has three offices across Lisburn, Peterborough and Glasgow, and currently employs more than 90 people.
Through its latest investment, it is aiming to grow its presence in the construction sectors in Ireland and the UK. The company’s managing director, Iain O’Kane, said that the 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,” he said. “This will help it to increase efficiencies, speed up payments and manage purchasing over multiple sites.”
Making this new product offering possible will require the company to grow quickly, he added. “Our new staff will help us to develop the new platform and give us the capacity to secure new contracts with construction companies across Ireland and the UK, along with promoting our other products and services in these markets.”
New hires will also be responsible for building on Xperience’s core products and increasing sales opportunities. The roles will have average salaries of more than £40,000.
Invest NI is supporting the job creation through funding of £96,000. George McKinney of Invest NI described Xperience as an “ambitious company” that has identified a new opportunity to scale.
“The competitive salaries on offer are testament to the impact and value the team will have within the company,” he added. “This is a welcome investment in Northern Ireland’s IT services cluster, and particularly for the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council area.”
