A SPECIALIST in retail software has expanded to create six jobs.

Transalis has extended its city office based in Portsmouth Technopole to add to its 25-strong team.

Adam Swanson, sales director at Transalis, said: ‘We need the extra office space because of increasing demand from countries in mainland Europe, as well as the UK.’

The business is a leader in digital transformation and helps its 3,000-client base trade electronically without the need for paper documentation.

They include household names such as retailers Argos, Universal Music, Superdrug and Microsoft.

Record growth has been made by Transalis after relocating sales to the Technopole from London two years ago, with an increase of customers in mainland Europe.

Mr Swanson said: ‘Given the international trade dimension, it is fitting that our larger offices overlook the international port.

‘We will be recruiting locally for additional technical staff – preferably undergraduates – and a further two staff for the sales team.’

Transalis is among 42 registered firms at Portsmouth Technopole, just off the southbound M275, with nearly 200 people employed between them and 92 per cent occupancy.

The company first moved into the serviced offices centre nine years ago.

Stephen Brownlie, the senior centre manager at Portsmouth Technopole, said: ‘Transalis is another inspirational example of an expanding company, flexing the space up to suit its growth without the cost and time-consuming hassle of moving elsewhere.’
