Having expanded into Shopify development in early 2017, CTI aim to work with a range of e-commerce solutions consolidating on their success with Magento 1&2.

Nick Rhind CEO said:“Increasingly, our customers are working with us on a strategic level throughout their business and not just our strength in development. As our team grows from 80 to our target of 100 over the next six months, this will give us the ability to impact a client’s bottom line quicker and more effectively than ever before, ensuring that our clients still get the service level they have come to expect."

Managing director Dave Beswick added: “We’ve already made leaps and bounds into being able to offer a true enterprise solution – we have the warts-and-all experience over several years working at the cutting edge of technology, but this investment puts us on a path to supplementing this experience and increasing the capabilities of a skilled workforce. We will be able to champion a truly cross-functional team, that not only delivers world-class leading software but also can implement it to best effect when meeting business objectives.”
