Codify secures almost £500,000 in new contracts since April
Aberdeen-based IT company, Codify, has won nearly half a million
pounds worth of work since the new financial year began in
Specialising in database software systems, predominantly for the
energy industry, the firm has won various projects including work
for Talisman, TAQA and Entier to deliver a variety of custom built
line of business applications.
These consistent successes have meant that Codify has been able
to bolster its existing team of 15 with five new members of staff,
including four software developers and a pre-sales business
The business, with premises in Aberdeen's city centre, has been
operating since 2000 and has proudly maintained close links with
local schools, linking up with Aberdeenshire Council for their work
experience placement programme, and Robert Gordon University, where
over half of Codify's staff graduated from.
Katherine Rutherford, Codify's Sales and Marketing Manager,
commented: "These contract wins are a testament to our ability to
not only deliver software that is right for companies across the
energy industry and beyond, but our effective support network which
we continually offer our clients, even after the software is put in
"Our new starts begin at what is undoubtedly a very exciting
time for not only Codify but the IT industry in general. We are
seeing an increase in demand for custom software as the innovative
companies in Aberdeen struggle to find off the shelf software that
matches their exact needs.
"Another area of growth we are seeing is for PC touch
screen applications for use in an office environment.
Previous growth in this area has been hampered by the lack of
practical and affordable hardware; however the technology is
finally catching up with the demand as a result of an explosion in
affordable device sizes. In addition, Windows 8 will be launched in
October and with it brings a new interface better suited to touch
screens, introducing touch to the mainstream PC.
"Although perhaps not always suitable for data input intensive
applications, a touch screen is ideal for viewing and investigating
information. They can offer a rich, intuitive user interface
where you can delve into a specific area at the touch of the
screen, encouraging investigation and discovery of
information. This is a definitely an exciting area for growth
and it will be interesting to see how it evolves in the
