The addition of Encore’s eight-strong software development team takes the number of UK staff purely focused on Digital work to over 50.

Encore has implemented a wide variety of applications and platforms that include: third party social networking services (such as Facebook); integration with legacy software; mobile platforms including BlackBerry, iPhone/iPad, HP WebOS, Windows Phone 7 and Android; intranets, asset storage, and internal collaboration platforms (including SharePoint, Oracle and others) and social media platforms.

Edelman hopes Encore's team of software developers will add depth and breadth to the capabilities of the agency's existing technical development team.

Marcus Dyer, MD of Edelman Digital UK, said: 'This is an enormous boost to the existing team in London and our growth as Edelman's European hub of digital innovation and delivery.'
