The company will also invest in a range of new cloud-based products during the next two years, enabling local SMEs to compete on a global scale.

Stuart Carson, Sales Director at Rainbow Communications, said “This is a hugely exciting time for us as we maintain and push the growth we have been experiencing over the last number of years. This £1m is in addition to the annual £5m we invest in providing locally based customer care and support.

“As an independent company, we only invest in the technologies that will benefit our customers and we are committed to sourcing the best suppliers and support to ensure the best user experience.
