Soft­ware firm moves in at park

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

A LEAD­ING provider of soft­ware so­lu­tions to the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try has moved to Tyther­ing­ton Busi­ness Park.

Fourth has more than 1,000 cus­tomers in 57 coun­tries and pro­vides com­pa­nies such as Pizza Ex­press, Jamie’s Ital­ian and Trav­elodge with ‘cloud-based’ soft­ware that can be ac­cessed any­where and gives cus­tomers full con­trol of their spend­ing in key busi­ness ar­eas in­clud­ing labour, in­ven­tory, HR and pay­roll.

The Tyther­ing­ton based part of the com­pany, which man­ages com­pany pay­rolls, has re­lo­cated from Win­ter­ton House in Mac­cles­field to Green­way House, which pro­vides dou­ble the of­fice space for up to 150 staff.

The 8,205 sq ft sec­ond floor of­fice, owned by Or­bit De­vel­op­ments, will al­low the com­pany to ex­pand its oper­a­tions.

Es­tab­lished in 1999, Fourth was the brain­child of se­rial restau­ra­teurs Derek and Ed­wina Lil­ley.

The duo de­vel­oped a va­ri­ety of soft­ware prod­ucts that could help busi­nesses gain max­i­mum con­trol over their two key costs – labour and stock.

They started out in the busi­ness cen­tre at Beech­field House on Lyme Green Busi­ness Park, then moved to the ad­ja­cent Win­ter­ton House in 2010, tak­ing 4,478 sq ft on a five-year lease.

Sh­eryl Cox, head of bureau ser­vices at Fourth, said: “Our growth strat­egy at Fourth has al­ways been sup­ported along the way by lo­cal land­lord Or­bit De­vel­op­ments who have helped us se­cure the right of­fice space for our busi­ness to grow”.

She added: “It was im­por­tant to find a space that we could make our own and fit with our cul­ture. We love our new space at Tyther­ing­ton, it’s a great place to work and we look for­ward to grow­ing our fan­tas­tic team here.”

The com­pany is cur­rently hir­ing for four po­si­tions: a pay­roll man­ager, a trainee pay­roll spe­cial­ist and two ad­min­is­tra­tors, and plan to re­cruit more staff in the next fi­nan­cial year.

Paul McLeman, di­rec­tor at Or­bit De­vel­op­ments said: “We are de­lighted that Fourth chose to move to another Or­bit of­fice within our Mac­cles­field port­fo­lio.

“Tyther­ing­ton Busi­ness Park is an ideal lo­ca­tion for a grow­ing busi­ness with plenty of on-site ameni­ties in­clud­ing a Premier Inn ho­tel, Kid­sun­lim­ited nurs­ery, Spring­wood pub and Sub­way fast food out­let. In ad­di­tion there is plenty of car park­ing for staff.”
