PODFather chose to relocate from its South Gyle HQ after a period of high growth meant it needed more space to grow. The software firm eventually settled on nearby Haston House, leasing 8,296 sq. ft of second floor office space in a 10-year agreement.
Haston House will give us flexibility for growth. We have significantly added to our team in the past year and this will continue across 2019...Colin McCreadie, Managing Director, PODFather
The deal will allow the company to grow its headcount by around 50%. Starting life as an electronic proof of delivery tool, the business now offers customers a variety of functions designed to replace paper processes with a digital application, including planning and safety compliance to earthworks ticketing and tracking waste.
PODFather’s solutions have been used by clients on major projects across the UK including Crossrail, Borders Railway, Glasgow’s Shieldhall Tunnel and the M25 motorway-widening scheme.
The firm currently employs 48 members of staff in both sales and technical development roles and is actively recruiting for a number of roles.
