Aspire has announced it has increased turnover by almost 60% in the last 12 months to achieve record results for a 7th consecutive year.
The company saw turnover rise by 58% in 2013 from £3.8m to over £6m, and is bullish in predicting growth of at least 30% for 2014.
Managing Director Nigel Begg said:
“I am delighted that the company is continuing to grow at such a significant rate. Just as importantly, our client retention rate remains at over 98% and we have also attracted many new clients in the UK and Europe.
“We remain intensely focussed on outstanding technical delivery, service and support as well as helping our clients to make significant cost savings. In the last year we have helped clients save up to 30% on their IT budgets and our innovative approach has resulted in an increased demand for Converged Solutions.
“We have also seen an increased demand for fully managed services and now effectively provide an outsourced IT department for many businesses across the UK, from start-ups up to multi-nationals applying the same best of breed technology to all their businesses.
“Employee numbers rose by more than 25% during the period and we expect technical and service recruitment to increase by a further 15% in the next 12 months to support continued planned growth.”
Sales Director Michael Errington added:
“We are a people business and much of our success can be attributed to the talented team at Aspire. In the last 12 months we have continued to attract the most experienced technologists from the region and beyond to work at Aspire. For us, it’s not just about the technical products and services we supply, but more about the overall solution we deliver and the way in which we deliver it.”
