DCSL GuideSmiths to go ‘One Beyond’ for clients following rebrand

Software development and digital transformation specialist to ‘accelerate the digital future’ on next step of ambitious growth journey

Multi-award-winning software development and digital transformation specialist, DCSL GuideSmiths, has rebranded as One Beyond, following a record period of business growth.

The firm’s new proposition aims to propel customers beyond their existing digital ambitions by combining its established heritage with perpetual innovation to drive intelligent business growth that is both long-lasting and transformational.

The launch of One Beyond follows 160% revenue and headcount growth in 2021 and represents the next step of the business’s ambitious growth journey, following a double-digit million pound private equity investment in December 2020 and DCSL’s subsequent acquisition of GuideSmiths in March 2021. The team now consists of more than 350 specialists across the UK, Spain, Romania and Hungary, cementing the firm’s position as an international bespoke software development power-house.

The rebrand also coincides with the expansion of the business’s service offering, with capabilities now encompassing large scale bespoke digital transformation, team augmentation, delivery of discrete Agile projects, Cyber Security and AI services.

Nick Thompson, CEO of One Beyond, said: “It is sad to say goodbye to the ‘DCSL’ brand name, something that has served us well since our inception in 1994, but since our private equity backing in 2020 and acquisition of GuideSmiths last year, it was always our ambition to adopt a new, modern and inclusive brand to take the business to the next level.

“The rebranding to One Beyond is preparing our company for the next stage of growth. We have huge ambitions for the future, including continued strong organic growth in revenue, headcount, further acquisitions to strengthen our capabilities and the diversification of our service lines.

“I am really proud of One Beyond, a name that represents us in the market as we are today: one global team, putting quality and service at the forefront of everything we do, going one beyond for our clients and enabling them to generate a competitive advantage and accelerate their ambitions.”

One Beyond’s highly competitive services are leveraged through an optimal blend of international delivery centres either UK-based or nearshore, all operating under the firm’s best practice methodology and with a partnership approach, to generate consistent and superior quality products and services.

The business is trusted by global brands such as Costa, MailOnline, Bourne Leisure, Centrica, Smith & Nephew, Pearson Education and the Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
