Hello, I’m Tom Simmons, Analyst Developers Team Lead​er at Aberdeen-based business analysts and software specialists nSYS Services.Tom 04

nSYS is made up of a team of highly experienced business analysts and software specialists who work closely with the company’s clients to help them enhance their business processes and, ultimately, increase efficiency and reduce costs. The firm’s wide range of solutions enables it to cover the full financial arena, including purchase to pay, data management, financial management and professional services automation.

My official title at nSYS is analyst developers team leader, a role that will see myself guide and mould the development team as we look to embrace the latest technologies and methodologies to provide the best solution possible to a client. It’s a fast-paced, ever changing environment that we work in so staying abreast with the latest developments, trends and technologies is key.

I’m looking forward to incorporating our systems into the very latest technology, focusing on touch screen, mobile devices and cloud computing, to allow nSYS to continue to be at the forefront of innovative business processes in Aberdeen and further afield.

I worked for nSYS for five years after graduating in Computer Science at Robert Gordon University as well as prior to that as a student. As you can imagine, there have been some big changes since my time then as developments in technology and processes rapidly increase. The company has invested heavily in IT infrastructure alongside subtle changes to the main product lines allowing nSYS to move with the digital era that we are currently living in. More specifically to my own role, there have been changes in the development languages used, as well as the development team playing a greater role in winning new company business.

LOVE: Achieving what I set out to do; I think the greatest feeling for any developer is the finished, working program and a happy customer.

HATE: Not being able to provide the best solution I can.

BEST THING EVER: The better half or steak & chips!

INTERESTS OUTSIDE WORK: Walking, cycling, photography and computers
