SUNDERLAND Software Centre has proven a perfect match for a new business.
Technically Compatible Ltd, a company which uses skills-testing technology to help companies find IT professionals, has moved into the centre as it gears up for growth.
The business, which was previously a sister company of The Test Factory, has taken up a new base as part of plans to expand.
Carl Jones, managing director, said: “Technically Compatible really does offer game-changing technology.
“A CV cannot show the technical ability of individual applicants, and that’s where our technology comes in for clients, allowing them to set their measures and create a test that will assess job applicants’ skills, and help determine their suitability for the role.
“We know that the market is vast and we’re already starting to become established.”
The company already boasts blue chip clients including Coca Cola and KPMG. Coun Paul Watson, leader of Sunderland City Council, said the company was just one of a growing community of technology firms helping to put the city on the map right around the world.
He said: “Technically Compatible is a really exciting young business, with huge growth potential and scalability.
“The software sector is one in which we see high growth, and the success of these companies in Sunderland in this field shows that we are an area that perfectly supports their needs.
“Sunderland Software Centre was purpose built to support software companies, so I am sure it will be the ideal base for Technically Compatible to develop and grow.”
