Mobile app developer Waracle is set to increase its Dundee team after its seven-figure acquisition by a major IT consultancy.
The South Tay Street-based operation has been taken over by Edinburgh-based Exception but will continue to operate as a standalone firm within the wider group.
Exception specialises in delivering long-term IT solutions to clients in financial services, government, the police and utilities sectors.
Chairman Martin Burke said the addition of Waracle would allow Exception to offer a “complete digital and mobile solution” to its customers.
Exception currently has a workforce of around 250 staff and it is anticipated that Waracle wil;l also build its workforce under its ownership.
Waracle chief executive Chris Martin said: “Exception’s bigger footprint will allow us to expand our services more quickly in growth areas and bring agile thinking to Exception’s existing clients.”
