C8 Consulting signs up to become part of Pocket App’s New London Lab

C8 joins Volume, Disruptive Mobile and Cab:app in Pocket App’s new creative hub in Holborn.

Reading – 12th January, 2016 – C8 Consulting, one of the UK’s premier PR and marketing companies, is delighted to announce the launch of its new London office. C8 Consulting has taken space in its client Pocket App’s new creative hub located in Holborn.

Pocket App, the UK’s largest independent app developer and client of C8’s, opened the London Lab a couple of months ago. Other partners and customers involved in the ‘Lab’ include Volume, a global provider of digital content, technology and innovation supporting some of the world's biggest brands, Cab:app, who with the help of Pocket App have just launched a new national cab hailing solution that is set to take the market by storm, digital agency Disruptive Mobile, and now C8.

In the summer of 2015 C8 moved to Green Park in Reading in order to further expand the business. The opening of its new London office provides a strong London foothold to complement the company’s established presence in the heartland of the technology landscape in the Thames Valley.

Green Park is home to a number of leading UK and global technology companies including Symantec, Huawei and Cisco, as well as several fast growing SMB organisations. This move has presented great opportunities for C8 to build a number of beneficial working relationships and find long-term contacts in influential and up-and-coming organisations based in the park. The decision to open an additional office in London at the Pocket App London Lab was made for two reasons: its location and also the creativity fostered within the Lab will mean that C8 can again enhance its offerings to prospects and customers alike.

Paula Elliott, Managing Director, C8 Consulting, commented: “We are very proud to announce the opening of our London Lab in partnership with Pocket App. We have had a strong working relationship with Pocket App for nearly two years now and were impressed by its new premises and the creative space that it has developed. This space will be ideal to bring clients in for brainstorming sessions and meetings. It also means that we can play a more integral part in Pocket App’s business and be on hand for other City-based clients.”

Paul Swaddle, CEO of Pocket App, commented: “I am delighted that C8 has chosen to be part of the London Lab. The Lab gives us a larger, more inventive environment in which to design brilliant apps for our clients and with C8’s help, market these to new and existing customers. This will not only strengthen our relationship with C8, but the Lab will also be a shining hub of innovation for the industry that will pave the way for new and exciting digital opportunities.”
