A creator of award-winning company secretarial software has just signed an agreement to work with a software delivery consultancy, located five minutes from its offices in central Ipswich.
Inform Direct has entered into a new partnership with IJYI to take its cloud-based offering, already used to manage the company secretarial requirements of over 100,000 companies, to a new level of functionality.
Over its six-year history, the software has been adopted by accountants, solicitors, property management agencies and businesses nationwide.
IJYI will work with Inform Direct to enhance its popular and evolving product still further, with new features to meet and surpass customer expectations.
Henry Catchpole, CEO at Inform Direct said: “There are a number of important synergies between our own business and IJYI. Both have been established for a similar number of years, are experiencing rapid growth and are Ipswich-based. Very importantly IJYI shares our own collaborative teamwork approach, has a wide range of technical capabilities and has already worked on a number of large, complex projects.
“From such a strong position, we are confident that they will deliver quickly without compromising on quality and can accelerate future development, bringing a fresh perspective on improvements. Last but not least, we are also delighted that they share our commitment to deliver excellent service for customers which has always been the cornerstone of our culture at Inform Direct.”
Martin Dumbill from IJYI added: “IJYI and Inform Direct are natural partners both in terms of our shared passion for delivering excellent quality software and also our commitment to collaborative working. The East of England is a great place to do business and we are immensely proud to be a part of the digital community here in Ipswich. This partnership demonstrates how local companies can work together to strengthen the local economy. We are delighted to be working alongside the team at Inform Direct and are excited about what the future holds for this partnership.”
Over the last few years, Inform Direct has won prestigious national accolades for its software including Practice Software Product of the Year at the British Accountancy Awards. In 2016 it was named one of the Future 50, as one of the most innovative businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk.
IJYI was born in 2014 when industry experts Chris Pont and John Nicholson came together with the joint vision to improve software delivery processes and outcomes for organisations across the UK and beyond. Since 2014 IJYI has grown rapidly and expanded its services portfolio to include software delivery, DevOps consultancy and cloud consultancy.
