Workforce management software firm, WorkPal, signs £100,000 deal
WorkPal, a Belfast headquartered company that has created, sells and installs a powerful workforce management tool to businesses around the world, is celebrating its largest international contract win in its 10-year history.
The company has taken on a three-year £100k deal to supply power generation solutions provider, Edina, with its highly acclaimed WorkPal software, which will see it used to consolidate the workflows of staff across the company’s global operations.
This includes over 100 service technicians and office administrators across Edina sites in the UK, Ireland, India and Australia.
The company, which reached out to WorkPal during the initial Covid-19 lockdown, has many service technicians working from its sites and out on the road. It realised in the first quarter of 2020 that it needed a platform that would allow streamlined, daily access to engineers timing and location information and chose WorkPal to fulfil these requirements.
Speaking about the deal, Ian Megahey, Sales Director at WorkPal said: “We are delighted to work with Edina to solve any issues it has with workforce management so it can focus on what it does best, being a leading power generation specialist and EPC solutions provider for the engineering, installation and after-care support for gas-fired distributed power plants and standby mission-critical generation.
“It’s timely that this deal, our largest international contract yet, was confirmed as we begin a rebrand of WorkPal which turns 10 this year. Over those years our reach has widened and our client portfolio has grown beyond our expectations.
“We have grown from a small team of five to operating in four locations; Dublin, Glasgow, New Jersey and at our Belfast HQ. We now employ 25 people across the business, which we expect to grow even more in the next few years. We are also now looking at a new office location in London, where some of our biggest clients are located.”
