A specialist software developer from the northwest of England has plenty of cause to celebrate its fifth anniversary having recently expanded its operations to the Southern Hemisphere.

Although Liverpool-based Zeus Tech Solutions has enjoyed a year-on-year growth in UK customers since its formation in December 2016, the company’s specialists are also now demonstrating their digital dexterity Down Under.

The innovative business, which is part of the Spirant Group and specialises in leveraging technology to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of companies across a broad spectrum of sectors, is currently supporting several prominent health and insurance firms in Perth, Victoria and Sydney.

Despite being headquartered tens of thousands of miles away from their new Australian customers, the nature of the work is familiar territory for Zeus’ team of developers, according to Managing Director Stephen Lucas.

“Technology has made the world a much smaller place and the fact that our head office is in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle does not prevent us from building, customising and implementing software solutions that will be used on a different continent,” he said. “Good ideas and great customer service are not constrained by geography.

“Our skills travel well – domestically and internationally – and I am delighted with the trajectory Zeus is on. We’ve come a long way in a relatively short space of time and demonstrated, against a backdrop of a global pandemic and wider economic gloom, that our services are valued and helping other businesses to flourish.

“It’s been a fantastic first five years and the next five promise to deliver even more success.”

In November, Zeus doubled the strength of its team of expert Proclaim and .NET developers when it provided career lifelines to several of the 200-plus people made redundant following the collapse of the Pure Business Group. The Jordan Street consultancy also boasts business interests on the Isle of Man and has attracted a series of enquiries from the Middle East.
