Explorer to acquire RedSky IT

This week’s Contract Journal reports that RedSky (formerly Ramesys) is in the process of being sold to a Canadian software group which it calls ‘Explore’ (it’s actually Explorer). It adds:

Explore’s [sic] operating format is a total contrast to that which exists currently at Redsky, with everyone in the Canadian operation working from home in a “virtual-type” operation. Some are reported to use their garage as their work-base.

This probably won’t cause too many problems at RedSky – some employees already have previous experience of home-working, through necessity…. Just over a year ago, Redsky staff had to be evacuated from their Hemel Hempstead offices following an oil depot explosion (see post).
