Global communications tech firm opens office in Edinburgh
Cinos, a specialist provider of integrated audio-visual and communication solutions, has announced its continued growth with the addition of an office in Edinburgh.
The Scottish team serves the emerging market need for a provider that understands the converging AV and IT purchasing drivers. The additional regional presence will fuel job creation and provide increased flexibility to the services Cinos delivers to clients across the healthcare, manufacturing, contact centre, financial and public sectors.
Steve Franklin, Executive Director at Cinos, said: “As the demand for audio-visual and unified communications technology continues to increase, we recognised Edinburgh as a key location to open our first local office to better engage with our Scottish customers.
“We’re proud to have created a number of positions so far in the Scottish market and have exciting plans for our future growth. Additionally, our offices in England, North America and Asia mean we are well positioned to deliver services both on a local and global scale.”
Cinos has been delivering projects, products and services to enterprises and the public sector since 2007. As a recognised supplier on a number of public sector framework agreements, Cinos’s extensive expertise has seen it supply a range of unified communications and video solutions to many entities including police forces, transport, councils, hospitals and NHS trusts.
“With over ten years of experience, our expertise in connecting the dots between AV, UC and IT departments puts us in prime position to help businesses accomplish their digital and communication objectives. Having an office in Edinburgh will further strengthen our ability to develop relationships with private businesses and public sector organisations, especially as IT and AV departments continue to merge. We’re particularly enthusiastic about how the Edinburgh office further reinforces our commitment to Scotland’s growing technology sector,” Franklin said.
The Edinburgh office in St Colme Street will house a team of five and is Cinos’s eighth location, joining its Surrey headquarters, and further offices in London, East Midlands and West Midlands in the UK, in addition to those in Ireland, America and Singapore.
