Easter treats don’t get much tastier than a new client. And that is exactly what we got earlier this month as Netcompany became the latest client to join us.
One of Denmark’s largest suppliers of the most critical administrative IT systems, Netcompany has been designing and delivering solutions that have dramatically increased user engagement and provided better citizen and customer experiences to improve societies for the last 20 years.
Now emerging as a key challenger in the UK market, Netcompany is already starting to influence IT delivery and improve services to UK citizens across both the private and public sector, including central government departments, and a number of services, finance, production, technology, media and telecoms companies. Mantis has been brought onboard to deliver a communications programme that will support Netcompany’s ambitious UK growth.
Just a few days into our engagement, the team took on its first major communications project – the news that Netcompany had partnered with Danish authorities to launch a new digital solution, COVIDmeter to collect knowledge about the Coronavirus COVID-19 in Denmark. This, coupled with a new app that is being developed by Netcompany for the Danish Government to use as part of its reopening strategy, gave us the perfect opportunity to flex our PR muscle.
Within days the Mantis team had developed press materials and started pitching the story to the media. With coverage on BBC News, a video interview for Netcompany’s CEO, André Rogaczewski, with Civil Service World and an interview with Public Technology.net in the works, plus a stream of other public sector and healthcare press coverage, Mantis started the account with an almighty bang. And we are only just getting warmed up.
Simon Seymour-Perry, Country Managing Partner UK says: “Our ethos at Netcompany is all about bringing the best people together to deliver society critical IT solutions. Our people are the best in the sector. When bringing an agency on board we wanted to find a team that matched our own people in terms of their depth of knowledge of our markets and the ability to influence at the highest levels. Mantis was that agency.”
