Recruits drafted in to support expanding software business
Software provider Adventoris has welcomed eight new team members across multiple departments to further support its growth plans for 2021.
The Huddersfield-based company diversified its product offering last year to support businesses further during the pandemic through its SwiftCloud platform, resulting in 100% growth in 2020 and a predicted turnover of £2.5m for 2021.
Appointments have been made across the development, marketing, implementation, and business development departments, with Steven Bamford joining the firm as business development manager after he was made redundant from his previous role at JLA supporting the hospitality and leisure sectors.
Bamford said: “The pandemic hit the hospitality and leisure sectors hard and, like many others, I was made redundant.
“It was a huge change to go from a thriving industry working with successful clients like the Savoy Hotel in London, to everything grinding to a halt.
“When I saw the opportunity at Adventoris I was excited, the company has a fantastic offering helping to support businesses in these difficult times.
“Having held previous roles working with hospitality, leisure and automotive clients, I am familiar with the struggles and challenges faced within these industries when it comes to their sales and ordering processes.”
In addition to Bamford, two other business development managers have been appointed to bolster the firm’s growth plans for this year.
As well as expanding the business development team, four implementation consultants, a developer, and a marketing assistant have also been brought onboard.
CEO and founder of Adventoris, James Clarkson, added: “I’m thrilled to welcome our new recruits to the team.
“Thankfully, the tech sector has stayed afloat throughout the pandemic and we have been able to continue supporting distributers and wholesalers to adopt a more digital approach.
“Digitised processes are continuing on an upward trajectory which Covid-19 has only accelerated, especially for B2B trade.
“We’re seeing many who were hesitant to adopt new technologies now keen to do so in order to survive and we are glad that we are able to assist businesses with this transition.”
