SaleCycle eyes further growth in 2016

A software firm in Houghton-le-Spring with offices in the USA, France and Singapore, is eyeing further growth for 2016 after landing a number of new blue chip clients.

SaleCycle, headed by founder and CEO Dominic Edmunds, offers shopping cart recovery services to major online retailers across the globe.

Having already worked with companies such as Virgin Atlantic, Ralph Lauren and Hertz, the company has recently secured a number of new major contracts with brands including Puma, Kenzo and Size?.

Six years since it was formed in 2010, the company now employs 135 people across its four offices, serving over 500 clients globally.

Edmunds is now expecting the company to continue growing its headcount this year and is investing in the region’s talented workforce.

Speaking to BQ, he said: "The SaleCycle recruitment events in December were a great success with a number of positions already filled as a result and many more conversations with candidates still ongoing.

“It was a brilliant opportunity for the team to meet some ambitious and talented individuals here in the North East.

“Our growth is continuing apace in 2016 fuelled by fantastic new clients such as Puma, Swiss Airlines and Kenzo.

“This continued growth means we will be recruiting for a variety of opportunities across our teams this year."

The company’s continued growth has been aided by a £350,000 grant in 2014 from the Let’s Grow Regional Growth Fund, delivered by BE Group and UNW LLP. 

Simon Allen, Let’s Grow programme manager at BE Group, added: “We are delighted to be supporting SaleCycle with this significant expansion to their operation in Sunderland. 

“This is just the type of business we need in the region, creating high-skill jobs and contributing to our reputation as a centre of excellence in computer software development.”
