IT company targets slice of the European market

A Londonderry company is investing over £100,000 to exploit business opportunities in Europe and further afield.

Cornerstone Automation Systems was formed earlier this year by Sean McNicholl, a recognised expert in software systems that assist large and medium sized companies to automate, sort and handle substantial volumes of computer data more cost effectively.

Invest NI is providing £30,750 to assist the company's substantial marketing activities and to facilitate the recruitment of two management level employees.

Des Gartland, manager of Invest NI's north west regional office in Londonderry said that the investment will also help to establish the region as an important centre in the area of data automation, sorting and handling and reinforce the city's position as a developing European city for specialist software services. "There is clearly a very extensive market opportunity for the business which will also benefit from Mr McNicholl's knowledge and overall leadership," he said.

Mr McNicholl said that his company has linked up with a US leader in this important technology, CASI of Texas, to offer their expertise in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

"We are able to offer a very broad spectrum of existing and potential clients a full turnkey solution including business-to-business, business-to-dealer and business-to-consumer technology," he said.
