‘Fast Track 25’ is an invitation only business club organised by Swansea Bay Business life, and this is the second year running for the programme, which is designed to highlight the stars of the Swansea business world.

Businesses are chosen for the Fast Track programme by an expert panel, who seek to reflect the type of businesses needed to ensure economic prosperity in the South West Wales region.   Codel Software are a good example of a welsh business with excellent growth and a great product that is able to reduce costs for other employers.

Their flagship product, Activ Absence, has a growing market share.  There has been a marked increase in demand for absence management software as businesses seek to reduce their operating costs, Activ Absence streamlines staff holiday administration and helps organisations drive down the cost of absence.

Adrian Lewis, Commercial Director for Activ Absence said “It’s great news for us, we regularly get national praise for our innovative cloud-based software, so it’s nice to know that word of our success is finally reaching Wales!”

Adrian’s team will join the brightest and best local businesses in attending the Fast Track 25 official networking event at Marriot Hotel in Swansea on July 9th. The event is due to feature a series of inspirational speakers including former rugby legend Robert Jones and regional director at Thomas Carroll group.

Wyn Jenkins, Managing Director of Seren Global Media said, “As this elite business event rolls into its second year, it has built up momentum and is becoming even more of a vibrant networking of like-minded business people.”
