Birmingham-based IT company On Device Solutions (ODS) is set for growth after raising an undisclosed amount in what is its first round of private investment.
The IT consultancy specialises in enterprise mobility products and services, helping businesses improve productivity by giving them anytime access to the information stored in enterprise systems like SAP.
The funding, injected by a single investor, allows On Device Solutions to triple its team across India and the UK, increasing from 32 to 100.
The cash injection also enables the IT consultancy to bolster sales and marketing efforts for its myJobCard product.
Navdeep Singla, director at On Device Solutions, said: “Receiving this level of support from an investor gives us confidence to think long term, investing in new product development, enhancing our offering as an IT consultancy and making continuous improvements to our existing product portfolio.
“As a result of the raise, we’re looking to expand our existing client portfolio, which currently spans the UK, UAE and Nordic regions.
“With this expansion comes a capability to take on bigger, more complex projects, driving growth and taking us to the next level as a company.”
The myJobCard 2.0 mobile app has been integrated with business suite S/4HANA from software company SAP.
The software has been made available on the SAP App Center in a bid to support mobile asset management, boost productivity, and enhance workplace safety and reliability.
Established in February 2011 as a consulting business, On Device Solutions is headquartered in Birmingham, with almost a third of its workforce operating in the UK.
On Device Solutions was founded by three SAP Mobile architects – Navdeep Singla, Murali Yeddula and Anup Rathi.
The IT company chose to base its UK office at the Innovation Birmingham Campus in October 2017, joining the prestigious Barclays Eagle Labs incubator programme.
Reflecting on the development of the business through the incubator, Navdeep added: “Our relationship with Barclays really helped us build credibility in the eyes of investors.
“Being closely linked with an international brand like Barclays and benefiting from its structured business support framework improved the operations of our business and the external perception of our brand.”
