North East technology and scale up entrepreneur Rob Mathieson is using his skills and drive to set up a new business that aims to be Europes largest and most effective provider of Salesforce Managed Services.
In an industry where most of the UKs certified people and consultants are in London, Rob wants to buck the trend and make the region a force to be reckoned with!!
In its first 6 months of trading Ion Industries Ltd has achieved some great milestones;
- Ion is the first registered consulting partner in the region
- They secured investment from 3 of the region's leading business owners
- Employed 3 new full time team members and the look out for new recruits (Interested? Check it out here)
- Oh and best of all he has employed the services of a great accountant!!
Many of you may not know that Salesforce is currently the world's largest CRM provider with 18.4% of the global market (we love a good stat!). It is not only an incredible sales management system, but also a platform which entire businesses can be built on.
Rob is very clear on the vision he has;
Our philosophy is very simple, ION believes that for every business to be successful there needs to be the necessary technology platform. This allows your company to grow and thrive, making the most out of your investment and resources, maximising your returns when you'll need it most.
We are lucky to be able to meet some of the region's leading business builders and Rob has the tools to be one of them. He is very passionate about the north east and the software industry and therefore has identified a significant shortage of Salesforce staff within the UK.
