Graham O’Rourke, Co-Founder & CTO, Aphix Software said, “Following on from a very successful year for the business in 2016, our focus this year is to triple our growth via rapid expansion in the UK market. Based on the demand for our products, we are delighted to announce that we will create 25 new positions within the next three years at our HQ here at the Millbank in Drogheda.
Our customers are large wholesalers who have ambitious plans for growth and expansion. They see digital ordering as a key part of their strategy to reduce costs, scale their business and deliver the best in customer service. While Brexit poses a serious threat to wholesalers in the UK and Ireland, it also makes it more important than ever to invest in digital solutions including web and app ordering. We can help wholesalers achieve competition advantage, significantly reduce costs and increase online sales.”
CTO at Aphix Software, Mark Reilly added, “Recruitment is already under way for a variety of technology-based roles including software and app developers. Driving investment into the region is a key focus for us, providing a significant boost to employment and benefiting the local economy.”
