Jayne Archbold, a former Sage executive, has been appointed as the Chair of Notify Technology.

The company, which specialises in health and safety software, has made the move as it prepares for international growth.

“Notify’s vision is to create a safer, healthier world by providing simple, smart, secure technology.  This is an exciting time to join the business and I’m looking forward to working with the team to innovate at every level,” said Archbold, who spent 18 years with Sage, most recently as CEO of its mid-market European division.

She’s currently CEO of Iptor Supply Chain Systems in Sweden and a  Non-Executive Director of Saberr.

Notify is backed by the North East Venture Fund (NEVF), supported by the European Regional Development Fund, managed by Mercia Fund Managers. In November it received £500k from the NEVF.

“Jayne is a proven technology leader. Her understanding of the compliance software market and experience of working within high growth companies across international boundaries will help us to drive the business forward,” added Duncan Davies, CEO of Notify Technology.
