Software giant invests in Birmingham and London

A leading software provider is growing its presence in the UK with the opening of two new offices in Birmingham city centre and London.

The expansion by Advanced Computer Software Group Ltd. (Advanced) is part of its ambitious plan to recruit more than 1,000 members of staff in the next 18 months. 

The group opened its new national headquarters in Slough’s Ditton Park near Heathrow Airport in October and will open its new Birmingham office in March.

Advanced is leasing the entire third floor of the newly-refurbished Mailbox, a 45,000 sq ft space, which is Birmingham’s largest commercial accommodation on a single floorplate. 

Gordon Wilson, CEO, Advanced Computer Software Group said: “Advanced is a great company with ambitious growth plans to become a world class business.

“Our investment in these new cutting edge facilities is part of a major recruitment drive, which will see the business grow by a third.

“It is also part of our wider strategy to foster more collaborative working, while further driving expansion.

“Our new headquarter offices provide a fantastic working environment for our staff and are excellent facilities to showcase to our customers.

“These are exciting times for the business and our employees are energised by all the opportunities that are on the horizon.” 

Advanced employs more than 2,000 members of staff and provides healthcare, business and learning management software and services to 20,000 customers.

The group was recognised for sales growth recently, after securing a ranking on The Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 league table for the first time.

It has also grown its revenue to more than £200m in just six years and was acquired by private equity firm, Vista Equity Partners (Vista) for £750m in March.

Advanced is recruiting for a number of positions including sales, professional services, software development and customer services.
