Tech-savvy entrepreneurs Peter Layland and Richard Campbell have launched their innovative app set to revolutionise the way that local businesses and consumers make appointments, following an investment of £200,000 in a bid to meet growing consumer demand.

Sortsy, which was officially launched to the Northern Ireland market in June, provides companies operating in the service industries with a quick route to market and allows them to directly engage with customers across Northern Ireland.
The new app will give businesses, both large and small, a platform to market their services to consumers, receiving bookings, and fill appointments directly based on consumer demand.  

Having already made an investment of £200k and created 7 new jobs to date, Northern Ireland’s latest tech start-up has big ambitions for their product.

Speaking about the new company Peter Layland, co-founder, Sortsy said “The idea for Sortsy was born out of sheer frustration as I tried to find a qualified and trusted trades person in Northern Ireland.

“Working with Richard and the newly formed Sortsy team we have developed a product which will offer businesses the perfect online channel for promoting and growing their business with a relevant local audience, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The app will also deliver exceptional customer service to NI consumers – it’s a win-win situation for everyone”.


Speaking about the new app, Richard Campbell, co-founder, Sortsy said, “From the very beginning I could see the potential in this product.  It is something I could see myself using all the time, so being a part of the team creating it and building it is just the icing on the cake”.

“Our product has infinite possibilities for the local businesses it can help grow and even create. From sole traders to multi-nationals, from plumbers to hairdressers and dentists, once started Sortsy can be expanded and assist virtually any type of business”.

Sortsy launched in Northern Ireland in June with over 400 trade professionals. Unlike other apps that offer just one genre or industry, Sortsy will be adding new industry sectors and additional business services to their platform very soon, and as they grow business users’ opportunities will grow also.
