“Manchester-based VST Enterprises has appointed 10 new sales consultants to its new business team, bringing its number of employees up to 30, in response to the company’s rapid growth and continued plans for expansion.
Based at various locations including the USA (New York, Reno & Chicago), India, Isle of Man, Singapore and Kuwait. The team will be responsible for liaising with blue chip companies and governments with the aim of creating opportunities for VST Enterprises’ versatile scanable technology, VCode, where it has the potential to revolutionise new industries.
The appointments come as the company reaches the final stages of its fifth round of funding at a £30m pre-money valuation, following the opening of its first US office in New York. The company is also due to open a second US office in Reno later this year.
VCode was developed by co-directors Louis-James Davis and Andy Gilbin and allows any mobile handset user to gain a range of information instantly and securely. By downloading the app, scanning a VCode takes the user directly to a company’s website or portal.
The versatile technology is currently being used to reform information delivery in many sectors including document delivery, car park payment systems, and oil shipping.
Louis-James Davis, chief executive and founder of VST Enterprises, says: “It has been an amazing year for the company and our expansion rate has been incredible considering we’re still in the start-up phase.
“It feels like now is the right time to expand our new business team, and I have no doubt that they will play a huge part in our goal to establish ourselves as a global leader in scanable technology.”
Among the new appointments is Ian Grieve, Gordon Livingstone and Timothy Wright III.
The VCode app is compatible with all iOS and Android smart phones and tablets and, unlike traditional bar or QR codes, VCodes can be scanned from any screened media, from distances of up to 100m and virtually any angle. Furthermore, each code is completely unique to eliminate the problem of mainstream counterfeiting.
