Quadratica (UK) has announced that it has significantly increased its business with HM Prison Service, Belfast Airport, and within the USA.

As part of its expanding business opportunity with HM Prison Service, Quadratica is creating ground-breaking courses for a new pilot scheme initiative which began trialling in a number of prison establishments earlier this year. HM Prison Service’s new pilot scheme aims to deliver online CBT courses for HM Prison Service staff over a variety of topics, from entry-level training to higher-level programmes.

Also, Quadratica is now providing fire safety training for all operators at Belfast International Airport (BFS). This scheme is believed to be the first of its kind in the country and ensures that all personnel employed at BFS will be trained via CBT to a consistently high standard.

In addition to the ongoing work in the UK, Quadratica has been chosen to develop the technology required to provide a high fidelity X-ray simulator capable of delivering image recognition training for the latest multi-view X-ray equipment and whole body imaging (WBI) scanners for a major US client.

These contract wins build on the success of the company’s growth this year. Chris Grey, MD of Quadratica, said, “Our recent success with HM Prison Service and the Belfast fire and rescue service opens up our product range from X-ray machine and aviation security training to innovative, computer-based training products. Quadratica’s in-house course delivery platform can handle any course content, with a comprehensive administration module that allows full tracking of students’ progress from start to finish. The new contract for multi-view X-ray and WBI simulator development underlines our ability to compete internationally and build on the work we have already developed overseas.”

The company recently received the second part of an investment of £250,000 from Partnership Investment Finance (PIF) – a commercial fund part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and European Social Fund Programmes – and the Yorkshire & Humber Equity Fund.

PIF’s investment manager, Alison Stevens, said: “We are delighted that Quadratica has been successful in winning these two important deals. We recently completed the second part of our investment after the business surpassed its revenue targets, and our investment now seems to be producing results.”
