A Fife based digital learning firm is targeting “significant” growth plans and aims to almost quadruple its turnover within the next five years.
ECom Scotland previously shrugged off the global recession and achieved its 10-year plan objectives which began in 2007.
Since then, the global growth in digital learning has led the Dunfermline firm, which currently has a turnover in excess of £1 million, to target breaking the £4m barrier by 2024.
Managing director, Wendy Edie, said: “We are the most established eLearning company in Scotland and most of our client base use more than one of our products and services.
“Many organisations are now facing digital disruption from a variety of sources and many need to embrace digital transformation to be competitive.
“Others have a digital skills gap to fill and are exploring how learning technologies can help upskill their team.”
The firm currently has more than 100 clients across the public, private and third sectors and has secured a number of recent business wins in the domestic and international markets with organisations including Mencap and Taalunie.
One of the most significant recent clients for the firm is the British Council which has a range of roles on the international stage, including developing a wider knowledge of the English language and encouraging scientific, technological and other educational cooperation between the UK and other countries.
The British Council engages with more than 500 million people online each year and eCom have been selected to create a refreshed online training suite, develop training content and assessments, as well as providing hosting using the firm’s eNetLearn, the firms cloud-based management system.
Employee numbers have grown from three to almost 40 and the firm has also expanded its physical presence with a base in Georgia USA.
Ms Edie said: “We will need to consider other satellite offices to be able to recruit and to support clients as we are seeing an ever-increasing range of geographical locations from our clients in UK, Europe and worldwide.”
