Another year of growth and success for Datalinx

Following on the worldwide success of Datalinx Warehouse Manager for Sage Enterprise Management (Sage X3) and to meet the demand for specialist industry functionality, Datalinx has opened a dedicated R&D hub in an additional building on the office campus. 

The expansion comes less than 3 years after the company outgrew their previous offices where they had been for 15 years.  Located in the beautiful surrey countryside, but only 9 miles from London Gatwick Airport, the new offices in a unique and charming converted barn provide more space and improved facilities for the Development team.

The Datalinx R&D building has been fitted out to the requirements of the Datalinx team and will enable them to better meet the needs of our Sage Enterprise Management end users and business partners.  This move has also enabled other Datalinx teams supporting Sage 200 and Sage 500 / 1000, to expand within the main HQ building, which has improved audio and visual facilities within the enlarged training area.

As the year progresses, the company looks forward to welcoming more customers.
