BASDA – The Business Application Software Developers Association – is the only industry association explicitly focused on supporting the issues of business software development organisations. Joining BASDA means Intelligo will benefit from being part of a collective and influential industry voice, becoming more efficient and effective in today’s highly competitive market place. As a UK trade body, BASDA operates through representation and collaboration to ensure that the voice of the UK business software industry is heard by some of the highest levels within UK government, policy-makers and industry media.

What was our reason for joining BASDA?
We joined BASDA because we wanted to be able to access the organisations pooled lobbying power and the fantastic UK payroll domain knowledge. We saw that this would support our goal to continue to improve our client experience and to predict UK market development trends better.

What value do we hope BASDA will bring to our business?
We believe that by having a closer working relationship with BASDA we can deliver increased value to our clients. We do see additional business and partnering opportunities from being part of a wider software development community.

Are there any particular topics that BASDA is championing that we are particularly interested in?
Like most organisations in both the UK and Ireland, we are very keenly watching all Brexit related developments. With the risk of a hard Brexit appearing increasingly likely, we are particularly interested in seeing how cross border payroll arrangements will work.

What are the current challenges within our industry, and how can BASDA help our company as the voice of the industry?
With the current pandemic, the burden and pace of legislative compliance have increased exponentially during 2020 and will continue into 2021. We believe that working with a focussed, reactive and flexible software provider will assist UK companies in managing their transformation process through stability and on to recovery.
