Managing director Nikola Kelly said: “As we emerge from the challenges of the last year, it is clear lots of large scale and critical projects have been delayed or put on hold.”

The firm said increasing digitalisation in business and public services, cyber protection, artificial intelligence, robotics and big data were having a “big impact” on the Scottish and UK marketplace.

Chief executive Gareth Biggerstaff said: “Launching a new business is something we are incredibly proud of.”

Be-IT’s latest financial results showed turnover increasing to £11.8 million in its sixth full year of trading.
