itelligence UK Invests £800k, Plans 30% Staff Growth in Glasgow


Glasgow/London, 30 July 2013 – itelligence, one of the UK’s leading international
full-service providers for solutions in the Applications, Analytics, Cloud and Services
environment, is investing £800,000 on new office premises and a 30% increase in
staff over the next 1 to 3 year period, at its Glasgow office.

The Glasgow office, located on St. Vincent Street, is responsible for providing a local
UK based SAP consultancy service with 48 current employees of whom 32 are
based in Glasgow and the remainder at client sites. itelligence clients, both new and
existing, receive exceptional ongoing service and support, not only during the
implementation projects but during the whole operations period. This combination of
exclusive SAP focus, breadth and depth of technical and application support services
and worldwide hosting capabilities is second to none.

Justin Brading, Managing Director of itelligence UK confirms the company’s
commitment to the Glasgow office and says, “We are investing in our UK solution
centre because we believe there is a high demand by both midsize and the smaller
corporate organisations for local rather than offshore support. Having UK consultants
that are expert in both the technologies and industry sectors that can provide support
measured in 30 minute time periods is highly attractive to the market place.”

Karen McLaughlin, UK Group Customer Services Director who lives locally in
Renfrewshire says, “Over the last 6 years we have invested in growing our team and
staff numbers have quadrupled, as we support over 200 Business Analytics
customers across the UK. We have now outgrown our current premises and are
keen to provide a more modern and spacious office for our staff.”


“We have planned a spare 30% capacity in the short term, and our goal is to attract
qualified SAP and Business Analytics Consultants to join us. Our key strategy is to
offer a local SAP application and technical support that is part of a global capability,”
she adds.

Kazuhiro Nishihata, Executive Vice President, Managing Director, Global Business
NTT Data Corporation, opened the new Glasgow office on Monday 22nd
July, along
with Justin Brading.
