Lancashire tech firm CircleLoop has launched in Ireland after witnessing the growth in remote working. 

The cloud-based phone system will power application-based telephony for Irish SMEs in its first international launch, with other countries planned for later in the year.  

Since its launch in 2017, CircleLoop has experienced a continued period of growth in the UK market with its modern-day approach to powering cloud-based telecoms.   

The company has attracted over 5,000 UK SMEs in the process as the transition to the cloud accelerates. 

The firm says the increase in remote working as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic combined with CircleLoop’s instant Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) approach has resulted in a sharp increase in the number of customers from countries outside of the UK, including Ireland, to take advantage of digitally-led communication products that empower staff to work remotely. 

Its business communication features include local numbering, call recording and voicemail transcription.

“It has always been in our growth plans to launch CircleLoop into other international territories beyond the UK and we are very excited about establishing CircleLoop as the go-to small business telecoms product in Ireland”, said Damian Hanson, co-founder and Director of CircleLoop 

“The challenges presented in recent months has resulted in many businesses now grasping the need to implement modern-day business communications and tools that can operate anywhere over the internet.”
