The Exeter based Blur Group has said that the global expansion of its business to take on multi-million dollar projects has happened ‘more quickly’ than envisaged.
In a trading statement ahead of its annual results being published in April, its said the value of projects submitted to its Global Services Exchange has now passed $150 million.
Two thirds of this sum total have been secured since September 2013.
Blur, which relocated its headquarters to Exeter in August and moved onto the city’s Science Park last month, has developed the digital – known as s-commerce – platforms upon which it delivers a professional skills exchange.
Its Global Services Exchange has more than 35,000 business users across the world registered to either offer their services, or dip into its pool of design, marketing, accounting, technology and legal experts.
Blur, which is still recruiting and set to employ 100 Exeter based staff by the end of this year, has also announced that it will begin the phased roll-out of an updated s-commerce platform – blur 4.0 – later this year.
The group’s chief executive Philip Letts said: “Not only did we see a strong finish to 2013 but 2014 has really seen us quick off the blocks and creates the right start for our increasing focus on enterprise customers this year.”
