Wiltshire creative digital agency RTS Group has received significant business loan support to accelerate its growth, post-pandemic.

The Lacock-based business uses data insights to create bespoke learning and development solutions. Their products aim to help businesses upskill their workforces.

Before the pandemic, RTS Group typically used a blend of digital and face-to-face learning. Now the business leans more towards digital, in response to market demand. Presently RTS is developing some exciting alternatives to face-to-face learning. For example, one solution is a 3D virtual learning solution that simulates face-to-face learning without the need for in-person activity.

Presently, the business is growing at pace. What’s more, the capital injection enables them to further invest in people, skills, and product development. RTS is forecasting further growth with several new jobs in the pipeline.

Terry Dean of Commercial Sense introduced the business to SWIG Finance.

Managing Director Jess Starley commented “The business has gone through some major changes recently. Having successfully pivoted into being a digital organisation, we’re very excited about our new product range. Our Business Manager, Jordan, was great to work with. He was clearly very interested in and supportive of our business, which we felt was a refreshing approach to business support.”

In addition, SWIG Business Manager Jordan Berg said “The pandemic impacted RTS heavily, with disruption to training budgets and the sectors their clients operate in. With a history spanning over 30 years, it was clear RTS was a strong business with an experienced management team worthy of support. It’s great to see how the business has adapted to market changes and how our funding is helping to accelerate their growth.”
