Fast-growing Data Quality software specialists Datactics welcomed Simon Hamilton, CEO of Belfast Chamber of Commerce, to open its latest office at One Lanyon Quay, tripling its office space in the landmark building. The new facility will house the tech firm’s Client Services arm supporting Datactics’ global customer base across financial services and the public sector.
“It’s great to be expanding our space for our staff here in the centre of Belfast,” said Datactics CEO, Stuart Harvey. “Northern Ireland has become an internationally recognised FinTech and RegTech centre of excellence, and we are glad to be working together as a team and growing our staff numbers. We are seeing benefits for our clients and staff as we collaborate and share in the extended and more spacious office.”
Hamilton has returned to open a new Datactics office for the first time since 2016, when the then 10-strong software firm first moved out of the Titanic Quarter’s Science Park. Now numbering nearly 60 employees, Datactics has built this growth on strong financial performance, which saw it ranked the 17th fastest growing tech firm in Deloitte Ireland’s Fast50 in 2020.
“Belfast Chamber is delighted to see an excellent, homegrown business like Datactics expanding its footprint in the city,” said Hamilton.
“In these uncertain times, it is reassuring that businesses continue to invest in Belfast and view our city as the ideal place to grow. At the beginning of the pandemic, many were quick to jump to a conclusion that the office was dead. Whilst working practices may indeed change, having such a great space for the Datactics team to innovate and collaborate here in the heart of Belfast is brilliant to see. Belfast Chamber strongly believes that Belfast has a bright future as a tech city. Businesses like Datactics are at the centre of our city’s economic renewal and I wish Stuart and the team all the best as they continue to grow.”
