RAINTON Bridge-based IT specialist 4th aspect is creating new jobs as it gears up for a U.S. launch.

The firm has just completed the first stage of a £300,000-plus investment from Rivers Capital Partners and Tweed Renaissance Investors Capital (TRI Cap), a syndicate of private investors based in the Scottish Borders.

4th aspect, which produces software aimed at helping businesses maximise their profile on internet search engines such as Google and Yahoo, was founded three years ago by Dave and Claire Glynn after years of frustration at the lack of a product to help them achieve higher search rankings for clients in their digital services agency. “Securing this investment will enable 4th aspect to further enhance a great product and present it to a much wider audience,” said Dave.

“As part of the expansion we are delighted to be creating three new roles and are currently seeking a sales director, a telesales assistant and a helpdesk adviser.”

Natalia Blagburn, investment manager at Rivers said: “We have seen the company go from strength-to-strength since we first backed 4th aspect last year.”
