Contract Wins Broaden Reach of Software Company

Scottish business software specialist Codify has expanded its overseas reach with two Scandinavian contract wins.

The Aberdeen-based firm has signed agreements to provide packages for Norwegian companies Norsk Helikopterservice and Acona.

Codify managing director Graeme Humphrey said: "Our software is being used across the world by clients in different sectors, but these contracts represent new ground for Codify in that they are our first Scandinavian-based clients.

"It is a very positive step for us into a market in which we see great potential. The company's growth up to this point has been supported by our strong track record and we aim to mirror that in Norway by working with Norsk Helikopterservice and Acona to deliver innovative solutions true to the Codify ethos."

Norsk Helikopterservice will benefit from a bespoke package to meet its needs in the aviation sector, specifically in the planning and management of helicopter flight schedules, whilst Acona, a drilling and well operations specialist, will adapt the Codify T1 template to fit with its data management requirements.

Graeme Humphrey added: "T1 is an exciting development for us which has grown in popularity throughout 2013. Providing a template option may appear to contradict our expertise in providing tailor made software for businesses - but it actually dovetails perfectly with what we do.

"T1 is not an off the shelf product, it is simply a foundation upon which the building blocks can be laid to create a solution for an individual client. What the template does is provide a cost effective option with proven functionality, something an increasing number of clients are embracing as the bedrock for their own unique system."

Codify, with an experienced and growing development team, moves into 2014 buoyed by a successful year in which the firm's client base increased and a number of other significant developments took place. Among those was winning ISO recognition, with the company awarded ISO9001 accreditation late last year, after a rigorous assessment process.

Graeme Humphrey said: "Achieving the ISO standard is a feather in the cap for the whole team and it reinforces the strength of the systems and procedures we have in place. We recognise the importance of ISO accreditation as a benchmark for quality in the market in which we operate and the process itself has been very valuable in underlining the good work which has been done over the years to ensure we are in a strong position to continue to thrive."

Codify, established in 2000, builds custom software with a range of applications which include logistics, health and safety, recruitment and tool rental management. The company has become established as a specialist in the oil and gas industry, with a team of more than 20 working from its Aberdeen office.
