About the business

Celebrating its 10th year in business, Youmanage is the developer of the UK’s leading HR platform and is the only company in Scotland to develop comprehensive, all-in-one HR software. Designed for organisations with up to two thousand employees, the firm’s ground-breaking people management system provides managers with all the tools, data, processes and guidance they need in one place.

Not only has Business Gateway helped us to improve our internal functions to ensure we deliver the best service to our clients, the varied support has allowed us to expand at a much faster rate.

How Business Gateway has helped

Chief Executive, Nick Pye originally contacted Business Gateway Forth Valley in 2012 to access start-up business services such as one-to-one business advice, innovation support and marketing expert support. Since then, Business Gateway has supported Youmanage to take on a graduate developer through Scottish Enterprise and ScotGrad, which bolstered internal development processes in the early days of growth.
