After completing deals with some big players among UK and international businesses, digital marketing company QUBA is focussed on putting themselves and Sheffield firmly on the map.

In the past 12 months QUBA have completed projects with such giants as Toys R Us, London Luton Airport and Text Help.

But the company has not forgotten its roots and continues to support city businesses such as Westfield Health, Irwin Mitchell and Sheffield Steels.

Over the past three years they have invested heavily in technology.

The result is that they do fewer, but higher value projects and have increased turnover dramatically.

QUBA strive to help clients grow by looking for opportunities in their data.

They have had to become a 24-hour business to support their large international business customers, whose websites handle thousands of customers.

Owing to their success, they have had to grow the business substantially and have increased in size from 23 to 37 staff in the past 18 months.

QUBA are developing a very strong reputation as a Microsoft certified web agency.

In the past 12 months they have proved they offer some of the best digital thought leadership and technical support in Britain.

The international arm of their businesses is doing more work, which they predict will benefit Sheffield as a whole in a number of ways.

They predict customers will spend money in the local economy and they promise to plough revenue generated from client relationships back into city businesses who support their day-to-day operations.

In the future, the firm are focussed on increasing turnover substantially as well as developing more highly profitable relationships to grow the company further.

If they achieve their goals, new jobs will be created in the region for aspiring talent and QUBA will deliver further positive public relations work for Sheffield.
