MACS Software, a leading international specialist in warehouse management software, has achieved a place on the Growth Accelerator programme, a government-backed initiative aimed at ambitious businesses and designed to help them double in size within three years.
The Growth Accelerator is a partnership between leading business growth experts, including Grant Thornton UK LLP, Pera, Oxford Innovation and Winning Pitch, and the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills. It helps business leaders that are passionate about growing their business and achieving their ambitions. The programme has the ability to open doors to external funding, seize new business opportunities, boost innovation and leadership and provide network connections that will help the business grow quickly thereby adding value for its customers.
As part of the selection process, MACS Software was assessed by the programme’s growth managers to establish the company’s suitability for the programme. The assessment looks at every aspect of a company’s operation including its capacity for growth and the potential for growth in its marketplace. Only successful, progressive companies with highly skilled, dedicated staff and experienced management are accepted on the programme.
Tony Liddar, Managing Director of MACS Software, is very pleased to have been accepted on the programme. “Not only does this give us a tremendous opportunity for rapid growth over the next few years, it is also testimony to the strength of our business today and the capabilities of our workforce and management,” he said. “It’s a really exciting time for us all.”
MACS Software recently celebrated 21 years in business during which it has carved a reputation for reliability and innovation in the supply of WMS for retail and wholesale customers, third-party logistics companies and dropship operations.
Earlier this year, following a devastating earthquake and subsequent cholera outbreak, MACS sent in reinforcements to get the SCMS (a delivery partner for USAID) warehouse, which despatches vital antiviral drugs, back to full operational capacity.
We all celebrated MACS Software’s 21st birthday recently with a staff trip to the Sutton Elms Go-Karting circuit in Leicestershire in order to let off a little steam. Some of the team showed a natural aptitude for thrashing around a race track – a far cry from our day jobs designing software for some of the world’s leading corporations.
