SAP consulting specialist targets global blue chip clients

December 12th: Belfast consulting company su53 Solutions Ltd is aiming to increase its export sales by 70 per cent to the UK and by 30 per cent to the US through a targeted programme of marketing activities supported by Invest Northern Ireland.

The company wants to exploit its position as a leading provider of governance, risk management, compliance and security services to companies that run SAP software. su53 is already ranked as one of the world leaders for such consulting, with several global companies as its clients.

su53 Solutions is investing �112,800 to raise its profile across the UK, Europe and North America and to create six new high quality jobs. Invest NI has offered over �30,000 of support. The company is hoping to achieve a 70% growth in exports to Europe and 30% to the US.

Oonagh Hinds, Manager of Invest NI’s Eastern Regional Office, says: “su53 Solutions already counts some of the biggest brands in the world among its customers. This investment will help it to drive new business opportunities through an integrated marketing campaign which aims to acquire six new blue chip customer deals per annum.

“The company is also further developing its solutions and services particularly within the risk management space. This combination of innovation and export focus puts it in a strong position for future growth.”

su53 Solutions Ltd was established in June 2006 and provides IT services that help its clients manage risk to reduce costs, automate process conformance, and enhance their status as a trusted business.

Gavin Campbell, su53 Founder and Innovation Director, says: “su53 has uniquely developed the concept of holistic end-to-end services for its clients covering governance, risk and compliance. With support from Invest NI we have developed Governance, Risk & Compliance assessment tools that we are both selling and using from our Belfast based Global Support Centre as a managed compliance service, which has been very successful.

“The support we are receiving for this current investment will allow us to move forward quickly and to roll out a number of key marketing activities, which we are confident will lead to a significant increase in turnover for the business.”
