Innovantage Marks Year of Growth with Plans for Internationalisation


2017 marks a year for continuous growth for Innovantage. In the next 12 months the company is set to launch in Italy, Netherlands and the USA. The first step upon this international journey has already begun with the product being released in Germany with many companies already utilizing the Insight tool.

Underpinning this growth was the acquisition of the business by Symphony Technology Group, bringing them into a family that also boasts Temp Buddy, Bond International and Job Rapido.

This collective of companies has allowed Innovantage to further enhance the business by tapping in to data sources from around the globe, adding millions of vacancies to their platform. For the company headquartered in Cardiff this step into the European landscape is one which they hope to be extremely successful.

The first step on this journey was to launch the Insight platform in Germany. They have been running test trials with a select few agencies. In the coming months the insight platform will be rolled out nationwide throughout Germany. Early signs are that the trial has been successful and the feedback has a resounding tone that this platform is going to become a game changer in the German market.

Richard Turner, CEO, said:

“We are delighted to be taking our software into Germany, this is the first step on a long journey for us into international waters. The support of our partners across the group has been integral to these recent developments. We are driven to ensuring that all of our clients have access to the most up-to-date technology in order to help their recruitment business succeed, grow and ultimately drive revenue.”

This foray into international waters has meant the company is actively looking to recruit across different regions of the world with them currently seeking talent in the technology, marketing and sales sectors.

For a small company in Wales to a major player in the international recruitment scene the future looks bright for Innovantage and we are all keen to see what progress they make over the next 24 months.
