Watt Communications wins more tech business
Watt Communications has welcomed another two technology clients into the fold: Perpetual Power Systems – a power management specialist company, and new IP security company, infoprotect. “If anything we’re even more passionate about what we do within the ICT sector,” says Samantha Watt, owner and managing director. “Thanks to our team of senior public relations consultants we have exciting growth plans ahead.”
Christelle Larkins from Perpetual Power Systems says the decision to partner with Watt Communications was easy. “Watt Communications always delivers and goes above and beyond any expectations set. It is an absolute pleasure working with the team.”
Scott Martin, director, infoprotect says the company was looking for a PR agency with a difference. “We needed so much more than just another PR company with the same old mentality of ‘you say it and we’ll get it printed’. We needed a company who truly understands our business, as well as the industry in which we operate. A well-oiled team which understands our customers and what their hot-buttons are, and importantly, how to push them. We have found this unique combination in Watt Communications.”
