MGISS has doubled its turnover in the last two years creating three jobs despite a difficult economy.
MGISS, based here in at Baltic Creative, delivers a full range of geospatial solutions and services that help businesses capture, analyse and visualise spatial data with intelligent asset management software and hardware mapping solutions. It is expanding to support a growing customer base in the UK and beyond.
The company, which has more recruitment planned for 2018 to fuel further growth, independently advises on smart use of data, technology and digital transformation. This allows organisations in the Infrastructure, Environment and Energy sectors manage their assets more efficiently.
Recording significant profits over the last 12 months, all of which is to be reinvested, it is expanding the business to include additional sales and technical staff from apprenticeship to senior level.
This is despite a forecast for UK growth to slow to 1.5% in 2017 and 1.4% in 2018 with risks to growth still weighted on the downside given the uncertainties associated with Brexit.
Managing Director Mike Darracott said:
“The consistent hard work of our team at MGISS has paid off this year and we are delighted with this fantastic result! We are reinvesting continually in all areas of the business, enabling us to expand and provide job opportunities for young people such as our new apprentice Luke, as well as our new business development and geospatial sales consultant roles.”
“We have been working with some great clients this year and are proud to be a first point of call for many companies managing assets in the water, gas, electricity, highways and environmental services industries who are embarking on digital transformation programmes. We have been able to transfer organisations from working on paper or with paper maps to working digitally, enabling them to capture data smarter and to the highest accuracy. We’ve also upgraded others to enable improved workflows between the field and the office saving them time and money, whilst boosting productivity and reducing risk.”
