A digital agency in Belfast is creating 13 new jobs as it reaches for higher sales in export markets.

Engage creates websites and web applications for companies in sectors ranging from retail to travel, utilities and finance.

Now it has secured support of £97,500 from Invest NI to grow sales in the key export markets of the Republic, the UK and the USA.

Client services director Steven Cassin said: "Our team works with larger organisations across multiple sectors including retail, travel, finance, banking, utility providers and government agencies.

"We deliver content management and e-commerce capabilities using market-leading technologies which create digital marketing agility for our clients."

He said the company created "highly innovative" digital solutions to support business areas such as customer service, e-commerce sales and applications for credit in the finance sector.

"We are delighted that our business is continuing to go from strength to strength. Invest NI's support over the last few years has been paramount to our ongoing success and has helped us to promote 23 new jobs since December 2012, 10 of which have been created to date.

"Due to this support we now sell over 70% of our services outside Northern Ireland."

George McKinney, Invest NI's director of technology and services, said: "I am delighted to be announcing 13 new jobs for Engage, a very innovative company which, with Invest NI support, has grown quickly since it was established in 2011.

"We previously supported Engage to create 10 new jobs and provided it with a range of assistance including research and development, skills development and marketing assistance.

"Through this support, the company rapidly developed its digital business, which has led to this further opportunity for expansion."

Clients of the firm have included the Law Society of Ireland, Co Tyrone equipment company Telestack, the Law Society of Ireland and Cosy Roof.
