Tier 2 Consulting, Hertfordshire’s leading web development specialist, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month and the team is delighted with the news that 2012 is set to become one of its most profitable years since its creation in 2002.
The software company, based at the Business & Technology Centre in
Stevenage, specialises in the development of high quality web
applications and systems integration services.
Over the last 12 months Tier 2 Consulting
has secured a string of exciting new business wins, including new
projects with global pharmaceuticals company, GlaxoSmithKline and major
insurance brokers, Lloyds of London.
GlaxoSmithKline was so impressed with the project it has also renewed
Tier 2’s support contract, which is now in its 10th consecutive year.
Following these recent account triumphs Tier 2 is now actively looking
to expand its local development team to support several new projects
over the next few months.
Andy Kennedy, Managing Director at Tier 2 Consulting,
comments: “Obviously we are all delighted to be celebrating our 10th
anniversary this month and I can’t quite believe how time has flown. We
started out as small business that focussed on delivering quality web
applications and we have kept that ethos right up until today. I think
some of our success could be attributed to the dedication, skills and
hardworking nature of people from this region and the fact our whole
team is client facing. We don’t outsource all of our projects abroad,
our team is UK based, and our clients always deal with us. If you have
an experienced local team that works closely with the client it will
almost always deliver high-quality software efficiently. I have always
felt that to deliver high quality software you need to speak to the
actual people working on the project.”
He added: “We are all looking forward to an exciting six months. We have
recently created a new delivery manager role for one of our technical
consultants and are planning to find two more senior web developers from
the local area to join our growing team.”
Tier 2 Consulting's
recent projects have included the development of a genetic toxicology
tracking system (GETIT) for GlaxoSmithKilne, the design and development
of a web-based platform to deliver high-quality legal subject matter to
the general public and legal advisors for a legal services provider, and
the development of online learning and assessment tools for the dental
students at King’s College, London.
With unique industry partners including Red Hat, the world’s largest
provider of open source technology, Tier 2 is able to maintain the
highest levels of technical skill and experience in Red Hat's JBoss
product range. The team also provides bespoke training, consultancy and
development services to global companies.
