A US-based software company has chosen Scotland for its new European headquarters.
Invisors, which delivers services for global human capital management platform Workday, has expanded overseas with an office in Glasgow.
It provides initial deployment, optimisation and ongoing support services in the UK, Ireland, Canada and the US for Workday’s full suite of products, including financial management, adaptive planning and prism analytics.
Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, Invisors opened its new office – located on Queen Street in Scotland’s largest city – after working closely with organisations such as Invest Glasgow, Scottish Development International (SDI) and Skills Development Scotland (SDS).
The firm has hired 20 employees across the UK, half of whom are based in its Glasgow office.
It is targeting incremental growth in employee numbers as it develops its presence in Europe.
Matt Smith, operations lead for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at Invisors, said: “I’m based in the Glasgow area, so was pleased that our due diligence indicated that Glasgow would be a strong location for our plans.
“We have seen a lot of value so far in the local talent we have attracted and the support we have received from local partners”.
Scotland an ‘attractive destination’ for inward investors
Mark Hallan, director of global investment at SDI, said: “Invisors is an innovative company enjoying rapid growth and it’s great news that the firm has chosen Glasgow to continue its global expansion.
“As part of our ‘Team Scotland’ approach to attracting inward investment, we’ve been pleased to work with our partners across the public sector to support Invisors with their decision to locate in Glasgow.
“The company’s presence in Scotland has steadily grown since the opening of the Glasgow office, demonstrating the talented workforce that exists in the local area.”
Marion Beattie, head of skills growth and inward investment at SDS, said: “People and skills are amongst the key elements businesses consider when deciding where to invest, and SDS is proud to work as part of Team Scotland in helping employers such as Invisors to locate here.
“Scotland offers a highly responsive skills and education system which is geared to meet the needs of employers, making us an attractive destination for inward investors.”
