EDINBURGH – 20th March, 2015 – LogicNow has today officially opened its new Edinburgh office at Exchange Crescent. The move to Edinburgh’s Exchange District is part of LogicNow’s continuing expansion in Scotland. LogicNow has offices and customers across the globe, including North America, Brazil, Australia, and Europe. Reflecting its strong business growth, the company is currently recruiting staff across all disciplines and is looking to continue to grow its global presence, with a new focus on Asia.
LogicNow provides over 12,000 Managed Service Providers and IT support companies with the integrated management platform that delivers comprehensive remote monitoring and management capabilities with integrated email security, hybrid cloud backup and recovery, and full-featured service management functionality. LogicNow was founded in Scotland in 2004 as HoundDog Technology, which was subsequently acquired by GFI Software in 2009. LogicNow was created as a result of a restructuring of the business units of GFI into separate companies in 2014.
The office opening was attended by Councillor Frank Ross, Economy Convener, Edinburgh Council, Alistair Forbes, General Manager of LogicNow, and members of the LogicNow team.
Cllr Frank Ross, Economy Convener, the City of Edinburgh Council, said: “This month saw Edinburgh record the strongest increase in the number of permanent jobs across Scotland, and one of the sectors that is fuelling this growth is IT. Edinburgh is now home to a growing number of successful technology companies, from small startups to those, like LogicNow, with customers across the globe.”
Alistair Forbes, General Manager of LogicNow, said: “We have seen tremendous growth in our business over the last five years, fuelled by innovation in our product range and our disruptive business model. The global trend towards IT outsourcing by small and medium businesses has seen the market opportunity grow for our customers and us. In addition we have grown our market share dramatically to become a world leader in our space. Our base in Scotland has been at the heart of this global expansion and over the last few years the thriving software technology scene in Edinburgh has provided an ideal base from which to drive that growth.
“As a software company, LogicNow depends on attracting the best people, and Scotland’s world-renowned universities and international outlook make continuing our investment and growth in Edinburgh a natural choice. Our new office is part of our ongoing drive to make LogicNow a great place to work and to recruit the great talent we need to maintain our position as a sustainable high-growth business.”
