We’ve been acquired!

by Mark

On the 6th of March 2020, Codify joined the Sword group of companies. Being acquired is a big event in our history, that took months of planning, but ultimately concluded against the backdrop of Covid-19. It was unexpected timing!

Shortly after we announced the news to our team & customers, we were packing up our things and heading home for lockdown. Now that the country is phasing out of lockdown, we want to make sure everyone knows our exciting news.

We bring our expertise in custom software development to Sword. We will continue to operate as a separate business unit, under the same management team – but now part of a group with over €213 million turnover, a presence in 22 countries and over 2,300 employees around the world.

This is an exciting time in our 20-year history. Being part of a large group will help us to grow and flourish. Sword are well-known in Aberdeen and beyond. We’ve already been introduced to customers in other sectors & geographies and have started working on projects for some of them.

Sword’s core values are a great match for our own beliefs. Keeping things simple, looking after the team and caring about great customer outcomes are all values that resonate with us. We look forward to growing the Codify team and continuing to lead the way in how custom software development should be delivered.

For all our existing customers it is business as usual. You’ll be looked after by the same team operating the same processes as before. We’ve had many years of success doing this and have no intention of changing the formula. Our focus is unchanged – designing, building and supporting custom software applications for web, desktop and mobile.

We’re excited to see what the next 20 years brings! 

We would love to hear from you. Get in touch by email or phone us on 01224 261600.
