Financial technology specialist ION has capped off a tremendous period of growth, with a record £1.3M contract win.
Following a strong 12 months for Newcastle based ION, the business has secured a three-year contract with Quotient Sciences, a global drug development and manufacturing accelerator. The project will focus on transforming Quotient’s CRM and Financial technology stack, to create a unified cloud platform that will support the company in its growth journey.
Quotient Sciences provides integrated and tailored drug substance, drug product, and clinical testing services that span the entire drug development pathway. Having all these services under one organisation allows them to save their customers precious time and money in getting new medicines to patients faster. Headquartered in Nottingham, Quotient Sciences currently has over 1,200 employees across 7 locations in the UK and US.
As a specialist in lead-to-ledger technologies, ION works with mid-market businesses to deploy advanced accounting, billing, and CRM cloud applications. Having previously worked with Alnwick-based Arcinova, ION was selected as the technology partner of choice when the organisation was acquired by Quotient Sciences earlier this year.
Managing Director, Rob Mathieson said: “ION is delighted to be partnering with Quotient Sciences to deliver this transformative project. Their industry-leading solution will bring all company activities and intelligence into one platform, improving efficiency and driving growth across their business.”
This new project award comes off the back of a strong period of growth for ION which has seen the team expand to 42 employees over the last 12 months.
“The demand for skills is so high right now and that’s why we are proud to have such a talented and dedicated team. We don’t take this for granted and have focused our energies on ensuring we can attract and retain the best people. This also includes expanding our ION Academy Programme to help get more young people into tech careers.
The Quotient project will involve utilising all these great skills across our business. As a team we are very excited and can’t wait to deliver a great result for Quotient Sciences.”
