George McKinney, Invest NI's Director of Technology & Services, said: "CARD is a company that has built its success on finding innovative and flexible ways of delivering its services, which has resulted in export growth.

"By investing in developing hi-tech market research systems such as Surveyteam, which was the first iPad-based, real-time market research system in the UK, the company has differentiated itself from its competitors. That competitive advantage has fuelled its recent success and set it on a course for further growth.

"Invest NI has supported the company over a number of years, providing assistance for research & development and marketing, as well as the current offer of employment grant."
