Welcome To 2016

All the members of staff here at Zircon Software would like to take the opportunity to welcome everyone into the new year, and that we hope to see plenty of clients, old and new, throughout 2016.

Despite the changing of the years our core business and philosophy remains the same. We develop and integrate software solutions that satisfy your most demanding business and technical requirements, but take particular pride in the quality of our work and attention to detail. Our drive is to satisfy all of your requirements with no unnecessary fuss, stress or expense.

2015 was a year of growth for Zircon; we increased our turnover by just over 40% through the continued support of our strong customer base, and the addition of some new clients.  As always we have done a large amount of work for Siemens and Knorr Bremse Rail UK, two of our most long standing clients.  Alongside this we have also provided solutions to a variety of problems for some of our ‘newer’ clients, which ranged from the continued support and enhancement of our client’s core products to the development of completely new systems and software components.

At the end of 2015 we had taken on three new employees which included Danny and Stuart, our two new placement students studying for degrees in Computer Science and a new assistant in the Marketing Department.

‘Last year was a very good year with increased turnover and profits. Thanks to all of our customers who gave us the work and to Zircon engineers who did it. This increased level of business indicates improvement in the financial outlook which is good for us all. Our work has been expanded beyond our traditional rail market to include payment systems, remote monitoring and process control.

Hopefully we can continue this trend this year and can continue to do an excellent job for our existing customers and attract some new ones!

I hope you have a very happy and prosperous year and I look forward to meeting you soon.’

Brian Hunt

Managing Director
