A UK software firm is creating 80 jobs at a new Belfast base as part of a £5.5m investment.
Futrli is setting up a new delivery centre in the city. The firm, set up in 2014, supports more than 1,200 accountancy firms and 45,000 small businesses globally with software as a service (SaaS) products.
The latest, Futrli Platform, designed for small businesses, utilises artificial intelligence and machine learning to turn business data into actions, helping small companies manage the business of doing business. The new jobs will boast average salaries of more than £30,000.
Invest NI has earmarked £440,000 towards the creation of the new posts, while the Department for the Economy will provide Assured Skills training up to £406,000.
Hannah Dawson, founder and chief executive of Futrli, said “Customer demand is rapidly accelerating as we continue to scale our release of Futrli Platform. Our new delivery centre in Belfast will be a huge asset to the business as we seek to make it available to small businesses globally and revolutionise how small businesses work.
“The tremendous wealth of local talent, access to top universities and proximity to our GB base were key factors in our decision to locate in Northern Ireland. Invest NI’s support has helped us to accelerate recruitment for this project and we are very much looking forward to expanding our team here.”
