Aiming for Growth, Software Solutions Company iRely Relocates HQ from Indiana to North Texas

The leading provider of back-office software solutions for petroleum, agriculture, and commodity trading and risk management industries has a global team of around 450 employees. Its new HQ in Irving's Las Colinas will leverage the region's "rich talent pool" and "thriving technology ecosystem." the company says.

iRely—a leading provider of back-office software solutions for petroleum, agriculture, and commodity trading and risk management industries—has relocated its headquarters from Fort Wayne, Indiana, to the Dallas suburb of Irving. 

Established in 2008 as a spinoff of Summit Software, iRely has a global team of around 450 employees. Its recently opened HQ at Williams Square in Las Colinas is currently staffed “by a select few full-time team members,” the company told Dallas Innovates.

“However, we have ambitious plans to significantly expand our presence and look forward to seeing our Dallas office grow in the near future,” the company added.

iRely cited a number of reasons for its HQ move to North Texas, calling it “a prime location for global business operations due to its well-connected transport networks, including the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.” The company said its new HQ will facilitate smoother international travel, enabling iRely to strengthen its global partnerships and better serve its international and domestic clients.

Another key reason? The region’s “thriving technology ecosystem.”

“By relocating to this vibrant tech community, iRely aims to foster closer connections with other industry leaders and leverage new technological advancements to enhance its product offerings,” the company said.

The new HQ will be a cornerstone for iRely’s continued expansion and innovation, the company added, leveraging Dallas’ reputation as a leading tech center and providing iRely “with access to a rich talent pool and state-of-the-art technological resources, fostering an environment where cutting-edge solutions can be developed and deployed.”

New HQ will serve as ‘central hub’ for iRely’s global ops—and a staging point for growth

George Olney

“Our new headquarters in Dallas is not just a change of address; it’s a strategic move to strengthen our international presence,” iRely President George Olney said in a statement. “This location will serve as a central hub for our global operations, enhancing our ability to collaborate with clients and partners across different time zones.”

Calling the move “a major milestone in iRely’s growth trajectory,” the company noted that it has experienced “significant expansion” over the past few years, driven by an increasing demand for its comprehensive software solutions. The new location will support iRely’s continued growth, providing a “larger, more dynamic workspace to accommodate its expanding team.”

Olney told Dallas Innovates that innovation is a key goal at his company, and a driving reason for its growth.

“Innovation at iRely means constantly evolving our software to incorporate the latest technology trends and customer feedback,” he said. “Our solutions are designed to be agile, scalable, and user-friendly, making them the perfect fit for dynamic industries like petroleum, agriculture, CTRM, and retail.”

iRely has additional locations in Washington; London; Bangalore, India; and Makati City in The Philippines. It says it provides end-to-end ERP and CTRM solutions to over 500 customers in more than 25 countries.
