Lisburn based IT company Xperience was established way back in 1969. Since 2011 the company has embarked on an expansion programme that greatly enhances its skill set and product portfolio and confirms its position as a leader in IT development in Northern Ireland. Its broad client base benefits from its key partnerships with IBM, Microsoft, Pegasus, Exchequer and Cisco.
Already enjoying success through these partnerships, Xperience group acquired Belfast based Cloud Computing specialist TCS Ltd in 2011. With this acquisition came an increased focus on Cloud based technology and a number of major corporate clients including Local Councils and Government Agencies such as PRONI.
“Key to increasing our Cloud offering was the ability to provide a Belfast based Data Centre,” said Iain O’Kane, MD of Xperience. “Through the acquisition of TCS Ltd, we can now offer this service which is already contributing to a growing client list. By offering clients the ability to store their data in a locally based Data Centre, we are ensuring fast and secure access through Northern Ireland’s high speed broadband network while alleviating concerns about important data being stored in locations outside of Northern Ireland.”
“The field of Unified Communications continues to be a developing area and our team have been receiving recognition from both Microsoft and Cisco. In day to day business, Unified Communications can enable the receiving of voice messages in an e-mail inbox, facilitate phone calls from a laptop computer, and transfer calls between a smart phone and a desk phone. Areas such as time management, desk top and home/office video conferencing and travel cost reduction will continue to drive the adoption of Unified Communications by local businesses.”
“In 2012, we acquired English company DMC Software Solutions based in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. The transaction is part of a targeted growth campaign to build market share locally and in GB markets. DMC are the third largest Sage partner in the UK and give Xperience an excellent foothold in the English marketplace."
“DMC is an award winning Software Company providing customer relationship management and financial software solutions to a wide range of SME’s throughout GB. With its experience in providing financial software, Cloud solutions and a strong customer base, DMC is a great addition to our group. We continue to build our expertise in robust IT solutions and our commitment to growing our business in NI and GB markets,” concluded Mr. O’Kane.
Xperience is very well positioned to support Northern Ireland businesses in their desire to control costs by providing innovative technology solutions. Xperience can provide a vast range of products, knowledge and expertise to suit clients large and small in both the public and private sectors.
