cakeStockport-based enterprise software solutions provider Cake Solutions is planning to take space at the Tech City development in east London later this year.

The move follows on from the company’s first south east base in Oxford which it opened last March.

Cake was established in 2001. The company deploys primarily open-source software for the platforms it creates for clients in central government and the NHS and increasingly for companies in the gaming sector.

Current projects include creating a system to improve productivity for a major manufacturer and technology for financial institutions designed to speed the authorisation of payments made online or via a mobile phone.

For the current year ending in April, the company is forecasting sales of £1.4m and the company is targeting sales climbing to £2.5m next year.

Staff numbers are now up to 22.

Last year Cake also took an equity stake in mobile games developer Quip Media based in London and one current project involves an update of Quip’s iPhone game Landlord.

Guy Remond, managing director of Cake, said: “Landlord is just the start of a stable of games planned by Quip Media. We aim to be long-term partners of Quip Media to support their continued development and success.

“With our locations in Manchester and Oxford we are well placed to work further with the digital and creative sectors.

“We are using leading-edge technology and working on some of the most advanced systems out there.”
