A Cramlington software provider supplying road haulage transport management systems has made several key appointments to support expansion plans.

Mandata (Management & Data Services) Ltd has appointed five new staff to technical support, account management and marketing roles.

The investment in additional resources will help it meet a growing demand for its systems.

Elliott Craddock and Jonathan Parker have joined as software support programmers.

Craddock has spent over 10 years in the haulage industry and will work alongside computing graduate Parker to provide second line support to Mandata’s customers.

New account manager Richard Bird, meanwhile, will be working with customers throughout the Midlands and Northern Ireland. Other new appointments to the Cramlington office include sales administrator Lisa Evans and Stewart Parry, who joins the Northumberland base as warehouse support programmer from Mandata’s Ross office.

The company now has plans to recruit additional software expertise as it gears up to take advantage of growing market opportunities in the haulage and logistics sector.

Chief executive Mark Norcliffe said: “We are committed to investing in people to propel the business forward and advance our products. Each new team member will have an important role to play in our growth.”
