New deal helps technology company push into Europe

    Crimson Tide mpro5

    IT’S all change at one of the town’s leading digital firms as they sign a €1million deal in The Netherlands with one of the world’s largest facilities management companies.
    The news comes at the same time that Crimson Tide announced their move into larger premises in Tunbridge Wells. They now work out of Oakhurst House, part of the old Mazda building on Mount Ephraim, on a ten-year lease.
    And earlier this month the company released the latest version of their main product, mpro5. The versatile piece of mobile software effectively helps streamline a company’s back office functions by feeding through real-time data from staff on the ground that can be quickly analysed and recorded.
    This new iteration of the software is three to four times faster and offers users great customisation options. Organisations as diverse as the Metro Newspaper, St James’s Hospital in Dublin, Nestlé and local councils utilise the mobile-compatible software to track orders, file audits or monitor medication. In total, it is now in use in over 100,000 locations.
    Foundation
    The recently signed Netherlands contract is worth a minimum of €200,000, with the potential to rise to a maximum of over €1million, and is for a 48-month period. The service will begin in September; until then, the other company cannot be named.
    Crimson Tide Executive Chairman Barrie Whipp commented: “We have been making a number of strategic growth investments internationally, and this contract represents an excellent foundation for our expansion in Northern Europe. It continues the pattern of overseas growth that saw the firm more than double their pre-tax profits last year.
