Dynamic Edge targets London growth with acquisition

Aberdeen-based technology business Dynamic Edge has acquired an IT firm as it looks to grow the business in the London area.

The acquisition of Waytime Technologies brings the total number of staff to 33 and creates new scope for the business to add to its mid-tier and large company client base. Dynamic Edge now has more than 300 clients across the UK, from Southampton to Wick.

All eight staff at Waytime, which is based in Leatherhead, Surrey, are being retained. As well as its Granite City HQ, Dynamic Edge has offices in Inverness and Dundee.

Rob Hamilton, CEO at Dynamic Edge, said: “We sought a business with similar expertise, values and commitment to customer service as Dynamic Edge. Waytime is an ideal fit for us in all respects.

“In addition, it has a number of oil and gas clients in the London and Guildford areas and that was also a factor in moving forward with this deal.  We’re looking to take the business to the next level.

“Dynamic Edge has grown year-on-year for the past eight years. We initially considered the Central Belt for our next expansion but opted for the London area, partly due to its strong connection with the oil and gas industry.

“There is huge scope for a proactive IT business; one that is constantly reviewing operations and providing a number of key, managed solutions. The addition of Waytime gives us access to the south-east of England market but it also has clients in other parts of the UK. We’re delighted with the deal.”

Dynamic Edge was established in Aberdeen in 2009 and has since expanded into Inverness with the acquisition of Alchemy Plus Business Solutions. The company also extended its interests to Dundee in 2015.

CEO Rob Hamilton moved to Surrey in August with plans to grow the business in the region and will be based at Waytime’s Leatherhead office.

Waytime directors will remain with the business as consultants, and the company’s name will also remain due to its established reputation in the region.
