Managed cloud communications provider Olive has expanded into Scotland with the launch of a hybrid business hub to serve local business and enterprise clients.
The Scottish team will be led by business sales director Stuart McAlpine, who will manage a team of 12 account managers working in and out of the Olive regional business hub at Academy Park in Glasgow.
In Scotland, the company works with clients including Scottish Friendly and Brewin Dolphin to provide cloud services, unified communications and collaboration tools.
McAlpine said: “The expansion of a local sales and engineering base means that we can better serve the Scottish market with a broad portfolio of mobility and cloud solutions hosted in Olive’s managed service platform, powered by Vodafone, Mitel, Microsoft and Google Cloud.”
Olive has worked with Mitel and Vodafone to design a technology suite at the hub that allows customers to experience product capabilities, with interactive demo’s and strategic project planning sessions.
Chief executive Martin Flick said: “We have been looking to Scotland as a regional powerhouse to expand our reach across the UK and better serve our customers for some time.
“Events of 2020 have forced businesses to think differently about how they operate and communicate by moving into a different and blended way of working, and our teams will continue to work with customers to create a best of breed plan that delivers for our UK wide customers.”
