A St Andrews technology firm, which develops card entry systems and membership cards for the events sector, has moved to a new premises to support its long-term growth plans with the backing of a six-figure funding package from Bank of Scotland.
Scotcomms Technology Group (STG) has relocated to a new purpose built 4,000 sq. ft. site. The new location will provide the firm with space to diversify its services in events management as well as expand its client base.
The business’ growth plan has already seen the firm update its android and cloud platforms to the latest technology, enabling the business to take on new clients and fulfill larger contracts in the UK and overseas.
STGs custom card system, TeamCard, generates real-time data about visitors, controls access and eliminates fraud to provide a time efficient and cost effective option for venues. TeamCard systems is being used nationally in stadiums, event venues and sports clubs, including Chelsea FC and Goodwood.
STG also works with Leisure Pass Group to develop and manage a sightseeing city card, CityPass, which offers discounted entry to top tourist destinations across Europe and the United States. Their joint growth plan will see more city tourist schemes added throughout the next year.
Randal McLister, Director of STG, said: “The loan from Bank of Scotland has given us a great opportunity to expand our business. We recently signed a contract with Royal and Ancient Golf Club to provide our membership card scheme to future Open Championships.
“With this new head office, we’re now firmly on the way to making our long-term visions of growth a reality.”
Grant Fraser, relationship manager at Bank of Scotland, added: “We are committed to supporting technology firms like Scotcomms Technology Group as they realise their growth ambitions. We have a team of sector experts who are on hand to provide guidance and tailored funding for each step of the business’ journey.”
