LEADING IT automation specialist PowerON has seen its turnover almost double to more than £2 million.
Launched two years ago, with Grimsby’s Steve Beaumont as co-founder, has offices on Europarc, where a third of the team is based.
It has now recruited 11 new team members during the past year, taking its total headcount to 27.
The company, which also has a presence in York and Surrey, provides powerful IT management and cloud automation solutions to organisations of all sizes.
It also became one of only a few firms in the world to be invited to join Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) Elite Partner Team, and now assists the world’s largest software maker in developing both new and existing products.
PowerON has also recently acquired the intellectual property rights for cloud-based IT infrastructure monitoring product, Tibana from Nubigenus, which has now been incorporated into its product suite.
“This will support our continued drive to bring our product business to the fore, with several very innovative subscription based products that we have developed coming to market this year,” Phil Mercer, Mr Beaumont’s co-founder, said. “The last 12 months have been hugely successful and we completely outstripped expectations following notable contract wins across both the public and private sectors.”
