Ulster firm finds an app for making profits rise

By David Elliot

A Holywood firm grew profits by 10% over the last year by tapping in to the demand for mobile and tablet applications.

Origin Partners provides applications for use on Apple and Android devices.

The company expects to see profits boosted by a further 25% this year after picking up a contract with Glasgow Underground.

"Amidst challenging economic conditions we've grown from an ambitious start-up company to a serious contender competing with the biggest firms in the UK and Ireland," said technical Director, Jerry Staple. "As an entirely self-funded and indigenously-owned business, that's a significant achievement."
