Rotherham’s Connected Data Solutions targets South East expansion

Clover House, Whitstable, will become home to Rotherham-based Connected Data Solutions new South East division

A Rotherham-based software development company which has pioneered new ground-breaking technology to protect members of staff in the workplace during emergency evacuations, is expanding its operations with the creation of new South East division.

Founded by experienced software developers Paul Chatwin and Andy Ford, Connected Data Solutions is headquartered at Moorgate Crofts Business Centre and helps businesses to manage their workforces more effectively by integrating different HR and Financial systems and procedures, enabling the company to operate more effectively.

Since launching the business in 2015, Connected Data Solutions has been responsible for pioneering ‘Roll Call’ – a unique and ground-breaking software system designed to protect employees during emergency evacuations.

The company’s new South East division will operate from Whitstable, Kent and create up to five new jobs. The centre will be used to support the company’s growing national portfolio of clients which includes 3M and Epson as well as providing additional capacity as the company continues to invest in developing its own range of products.

In addition to producing its own range of products, Connected Data Solutions also acts as a delivery partner for the global software developer Kronos, a leading developer of workforce management software.

The new South East Division will be headed by co-founder Paul Chatwin, whilst Andy Ford will continue to oversee operations from the company’s Rotherham-based headquarters.

Paul Chatwin, Director, Connected Data Solutions said:

“Launching a new South East division for the business is an important part of our future growth plans. I grew up in the area and felt Whitstable offered an excellent platform to continue growing our business.

“Since launching the business, we have developed a national client base, and our Roll Call software, the result of more than a decade of research and development is helping to ensure companies with large numbers of employees are accounted for quickly during emergency evacuations.

“We’re at a very exciting time in our business journey and with a number of new products currently in development, our new office will support our operations in South Yorkshire and we are planning to create a number of new positions within both locations”
