Novosco secures £500k worth of business after deals with three other Northern Ireland companies

By Margaret Canning

Northern Ireland IT firm Novosco has won business worth over £500,000 with three major home-grown firms.

The company, which is led by Patrick McAliskey, is now providing services to equipment manufacturer CDE Global, medical dressings firm TG Eakin and disability aids company Leckey.

Novosco, which is based in the Northern Ireland Science Park, provides managed cloud services to companies and organisations in the public sector.

It carries out work for about 60% of the Top 100 Companies in Northern Ireland - and has now been brought in to review and upgrade the IT systems of three new firms.

Managing director Patrick McAliskey said the firms were "amongst Northern Ireland's most innovative companies, with fast-growing export businesses and expanding teams".

"IT plays a key role in their success and we are helping them ensure their systems are robust, dynamic and agile as they continue to grow," he said.

"For instance, our work for TG Eakin will provide their staff with a remote access solution that will enable them to work anywhere in the world via an encrypted connection, delivering a desktop environment from their datacentre," he said.

It's also developed a new IT infrastructure for Leckey, which uses virtual reality to help the business in its work with users and customers.

Novosco has been in business for more than 20 years and now employs around 120 people. It was named Overall Business of the Year at last year's Belfast Telegraph Business Awards.
