Growing software firm relocates to larger base

THRIVING software business ELF Productivity has moved into larger premises in Wigan as part of ambitious plans following a period of record growth.

ELF, which has developed employee time and attendance software over 30 years, has moved from Skull House Lane, Appley Bridge to a bigger building at Ceequel House at 2 Smithy Court on Smithy Brook Road.

The move will enable the firm to increase headcount and attract new clients to its blue chip customer base, which includes Allied Bakeries, Steinhoff UK, The Trafford Centre and NHS logistics.

The specialist firm writes all its leading-edge software in-house and has doubled turnover in the last five years.

In high demand from companies with 200 or more employees, ELF’s specialist software includes fingerprint and face recognition ‘clocking-in’ systems.
The firm’s ELF ‘Ceequel’ technology, is one of the most technologically advanced solutions available in the industry and caters for unique shift patterns or complex pay guidelines.

Based on Microsoft’s SQL Server technology, the software co-exist seamlessly with companies’ existing systems and infrastructure in both public sector and blue-chip organisations.

ELF’s managing director, Paul O’Brian, said: “Our dedication to customer support and highly adaptable, dynamic products have made ELF one of the fastest growing time management companies in Europe.  The new offices reflect our corporate image and will help us to realise our plans for aggressive growth.”
