Aberdeen-based business applications support firm Escone Solutions has secured a raft of new and renewed business contracts worth more than £500,000 as it continues to expand its business and its team across both the North-east and the rest of the UK.
Its most recent win is with Your Housing Group, one of the UK’s largest housing providers, who have signed a consultancy contract agreement to improve its existing systems and processes.
Denholm Seafoods, Transport UK (formerly Abellio Transport), Bromsgrove District Housing Trust, the Scottish Football Association, and ScotRail have all signed up to Escone Assist, Escone’s remote helpdesk which provides ‘business as usual’ support for business-critical applications such as OpenAccounts and eBIS. Newport City Homes has renewed its support and services contract for a further three years.
The new agreements have boosted Escone’s growth plans for its client portfolio across a range of sectors, including transport, food and drink, and housing, as well as oil and gas.
Meanwhile, the company’s headcount has risen to 16, with four new appointments in the past year alone, resulting in a recent move to a larger, more appropriate office premises.
Mike said: “The past year has been very exciting for Escone. We have put a lot of time and effort into building strong, meaningful relationships with our clients with the result that they feel confident in the work we do for them, helping them produce the results that they want.
“We have also continued to develop the team, bringing in new colleagues with varying degrees of experience, offering them opportunities to enhance their skills by giving them exposure to big client projects and external qualifications. Together, they are a very talented, dedicated team that brings new ideas and a high level of commitment to Escone.
“Moving forward, our business growth and development plan includes increasing Escone Assist’s market share, introduce Finance BI Dashboards to market and continue to help OpenAccounts and eBIS customers to get the most out of their applications.”
