Richlyn Systems, the Sheffield-based software and website specialist, is playing a key role in the growth of Leeds-based business centres specialist Evans Easyspace.
Blades Enterprise Centre-based Richlyn was already providing specialised software for Easyspace's former parent the Evans Property Group, when Evans Easyspace was laun-ched in 2000.
The Sheffield company set up an integrated website and property management system for the business centre company, which now runs 65 centres across the UK, all supported by Richlyn's IT software and services.
Richlyn also provides website and software packages for Evans Easyspace's clients.
"Richlyn designed an extranet which is in effect a virtual business community for our clients, operating on several levels from a single centre to the national network," says Evans Easyspace finance director Bradley Cooper.
"A company can buy goods and services from a neighbour, or from a supplier on a different site; a client in Yorkshire can do business with a client in Scotland or the Midlands."
The Evans Easynet website also allows businesses to check invoices online, advertise for staff, access details of public transport services and keep in touch with local and national news.
"We encourage our customers to use the site as their homepage. It adds real value to the services we offer."
