News : Cloud Move for Call Centre Entrepreneurs
Feb 23, 2015 -- Two of the three entrepreneurs who founded and ultimately sold call centre firm City Park Technologies to Teleperformance in a deal last year have returned with a new venture.
Rod Stuart and Keith Inch, who with fellow director Gerald Murphy, launched cloud solutions company GCI Scotland earlier this month.
Their latest enterprise, which delivers cloud hosted technology solutions to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), has been set a "modest achievable target" of turning over in its first three years of operation.
GCI Scotland works in partnership with GCI Com, an independent network company which operates in a similar way to BT while focusing fully on the business sector.
The Scottish company "piggy backs" on to the products and services offered by GCI, which provides clients with an "end to end solution from desktop to data centre".

"We feel we have got a very strong and credible business to business, sales and service model, partly developed from the contact centre industry.
"There is absolutely relevant experience there, and we know the Scottish market. Keith in particular has run and sold communications companies in Scotland for the last 20 years."
GCI Scotland launched this month with 25 staff across sales and technology roles, some of whom were inherited from GCI Com. It is based at the City Park building in Glasgow's east end.
