Record start to the year for software business

A South Shields-based software firm has achieved record sales amounting to almost £300,000 in just one month.

Despite the current economic climate, January has proved a fruitful month for DEF Software.

The company has won a host of contracts to newly acquired public sector clients across the UK.

The software contracts include DEF software systems for local authority planning, which helps improve efficiency of the planning application process.

DEF Software founder David Frame said: “We are very proud to have had such a successful start to 2011 as we move into our third year of trading.

“The business we have had in January alone has put us well ahead of our target turnover for 2011 / 2012 of £1m.”

Since it began, the firm has seen great success and as a result quickly set up its sister company DEF Apps servicing the private sector, meaning DEF is now working lucratively in both sectors.

The firm is continuing to expand it’s reach across the UK and is starting their financial year with an order book just short of £900,000.

Mr Frame added: “It is pleasing to see this achievement is from all-new clients, which demonstrates our strength of reputation is growing within local authority circles.

“DEF Apps has also taken off alongside very productively within the private sector and I believe we are well within reach of meeting the two businesses’ combined target of £6m by 2015.”
