A fast-growing IT firm has boosted revenues by £1.2m in the last six months on the back of a series of lucrative contract wins.

Edinburgh-based Opal has won substantial work in the retail, education, financial services and creative sectors as it looks to increase its share of the UK’s burgeoning IT services market. The work includes contracts with one of the biggest names in UK fashion and a national retail banking and insurance giant.

British consumers have been rocked by several high-profile data breaches in recent months. Last month it emerged that up to 34,000 holidaymakers at Butlin’s resorts may have had their personal information stolen by hackers. A few weeks later, British Airways admitted its security systems had been breached in a malicious criminal attack on its website, which led to hundreds of customers having their personal and financial details compromised. 

Perhaps unsurprisingly, flexibility is a key buzzword for a company that has the word ‘elastic’ in its name. Launched in 2005, Edinburgh-based Elastic Creative has developed into one of the city’s most prominent brand and marketing consultancies, using a wide range of communication tools to promote client brands, products and services.

A fast-growing IT firm has hit a revenue milestone following a series of contract wins.
Newcastle-headquartered Opal IT has won more than £500,000 of new business in the last six months – a feat that has enabled the firm to break through the £2m turnover barrier for the first time.

A thriving communications firm needs a flexible IT system that can allow the business to grow and flourish.
This has been aptly demonstrated by Guerilla, a fully integrated, results-driven creative and digital communications agency that has expanded steadily since its launch in Newcastle in 2002.
