Liquidators at Begbies Traynor are fighting to save an educational software business that was forced to close its doors.
Mary Currie-Smith and John Kelly, partners at Begbies Traynor’s Cambridge and Birmingham offices, have been appointed liquidators to Logotron which traded as Widgit Software and Speedwell.
The firm had offices in Cubbington, near Coventry and in Chittering, near Cambridge.
The businesses stopped trading on July 22 and all 48 staff were made redundant.
Mary Currie-Smith said that the company’s assets were for sale, with initial expressions of interest having already been received.
“Widgit specialises in producing educational software for autistic children in a language of some 2,000 symbols that autistic students find it easier to work in.
“Speedwell provides educational software for clients, including the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales,” she said.
“Widgit has an international presence and its products have a worldwide market so clearly there are opportunities there and we are actively seeking interest in both Widgit and Speedwell.”
