Belfast-headquartered Lightyear, the automated purchasing and accounts payable software company, was ranked 11th overall and the highest-ranking Northern Ireland company in this year’s Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking of the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in Ireland.

Lightyear consolidates purchasing, bookkeeping and bill approval within one intuitive cloud platform.

With many organisations adopting a digital-first strategy, Lightyear has helped finance teams across the world make the shift to digital, as well as save up to 80 per cent in time and costs. As the market leader in the Accounts Payable market, Lightyear is the ideal automation solution for fast-growing large SMEs and mid-market businesses.

Lightyear is on course to achieve 100 per cent revenue growth in 2022, fuelled by new customer segments across a range of industries, including hospitality, education, health and aged care, life sciences and many more.

Lightyear’s chief executive, Chris Gregg, credits this exceptional growth to “the Lightyear team for their commitment and innovation in product development and to our customers who have collaborated with us throughout this growth period by providing feedback that has helped shape our current and future product”.

“Having bootstrapped the company since 2018, we are thrilled to rank as one of the fastest-growing technology companies in Ireland. It shows that the team’s hard work is really paying off and that our growth strategy is working,” he said.

This tops off an excellent award-winning year, which has included Gartner FrontRunners, Capterra AP Shortlists, GetApp and Software Advice Most Recommended and Best Customer Support, as well as Belfast Telegraph’s Best Place to Work in IT Awards.

Looking toward the future, Lightyear is expanding into new state-of-the-art offices in Sydney and Belfast, as well as expanding its footprint into North America in 2023.
