Azzure IT secures €­200,000 Sheffield Regional Growth Fund Grant

September 4, 2014



Leading UK Microsoft Dynamics NAV software provider, Azzure IT has secured grant funding from the Regional Growth Fund to help support its aggressive growth strategy and increase staff count.  Over the last three years, Azzure has trebled its number of staff and its turnover to become one of the UK’s leading Dynamics NAV providers. The £3.2 billion Regional Growth Fund (RGF) is a government initiative supporting investment in the private sector to safeguard existing jobs and create new ones. Azzure IT has been awarded €200,000 by the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to part-fund additional staff recruitment and training.

LEP only awards grants to the most worthy projects and Azzure went through a rigorous multi-stage application process, including external audits. With aggressive bidding from other businesses, competition was tough, but Azzure’s proven track record, coupled with its continued ambition to grow, won the funding.

Craig Such, Managing Director for Azzure commented: “To be awarded this RGF grant is a tremendous recognition of our achievements to date, as well as our plans for the future. This grant will really help us fund the acquisition of new talent and support the investment we make in the rigorous training of those new members of the team.”

The funding has already helped Azzure employ eight new members of staff including project managers, developers, and sales and implementation consultants.

With a strong team behind it, Azzure is not only helping local businesses such as Universal Drilling, OSL Group, Moon Climbing and The Stitch Factory, but also organisations further afield, including the National Labour Party, and it is gaining industry recognition for its work as a result. Azzure was the fastest company to reach the prestigious status of Microsoft Gold ERP Partner, awarded to those who meet the stringent set of criteria - training and staff qualifications, customer satisfaction and overall business performance.
