This business started out by doing research for the Ministry of Defence, working on sophisticated equipment such as signalling systems for ground-to-air missiles. But after the fall of the Berlin Wall, defence budgets were cut and Detica had to find new business. It started to help companies such as Centrica and National Express implement software for managing customer relationships.
The Guildford company has raised its profits 38% a year from £2m in 1998 to £5.1m in 2001, when it employed 220 people. It recently announced that it plans to float on the London Stock Exchange in April 2002.
