C8 Consulting Appointed as Global PR Agency for VertiGIS

VertiGIS appoints C8 Consulting to drive brand awareness across four key industry sectors worldwide

C8 Consulting, the disruptive-tech PR agency, announced today that it has been appointed by global market leader and provider of innovative spatial asset management solutions, VertiGIS, to work on delivering a media relations programme focused on the national, broadcast, investment and trade media. The goal is to position VertiGIS and its key spokespeople – including London-based CEO, Andy Berry – as experts at the centre of conversations around geographic information systems (GIS).

Headquartered in London, but with multiple offices around the world, VertiGIS is focused on the development of software solutions and services that enable professionals in the utilities, public sector, telecommunications, and infrastructure sectors to connect their business processes with spatial management technology. Based upon decades of industry experience and research into cutting-edge technology, VertiGIS continues to invest in configurable, cloud-ready software that solves real-world challenges for its customers. Since VertiGIS was acquired by Battery Ventures in 2017 the company has been highly acquisitive, with 10 acquisitions under its belt in North America and Europe in the last 7 years, and shows no signs of slowing down, as the company continues to expand its offerings into target industries around the world.

C8 works strategically with global businesses that are actively disrupting their sectors, that are typically in hyper scale growth mode. For VertiGIS, C8 will work to increase overall brand awareness, raise the profile of its versatile portfolio of products and boost VertiGIS’ influence, particularly across the four key industries: public sector, utilities, telecommunications, and infrastructure.

By kick-starting conversations with audiences that matter, C8 is passionate about telling clients’ stories. The media programme with VertiGIS will involve engaging journalists, analysts, key influencers, legislative bodies, and trade associations through edgy and innovative campaigns to secure editorial that resonates with audiences in influential global, national and trade publications.

C8’s breath of industry and media relations experience will enable VertiGIS to amplify its key messages and stay one step ahead of the competition to build its brand and reputation. Ultimately, C8 will deliver value that impacts the bottom line.

Paula Elliott, Managing Director of C8 Consulting, is delighted to be working with such a rapidly growing company: “VertiGIS has remarkable potential. It possesses highly innovative technology and we’re relishing the opportunity to ramp up its visibility across multiple regions. Once we have helped raise awareness of its GIS capabilities, the scope for company growth and development will be even more exciting.”

VertiGIS’ Chief Marketing Officer, Lisa Cottrell, added: “We were keen to find the right agency and people to take our brand forward, and Paula and her team’s approach really stood out. C8 has extensive industry expertise, impressive PR strategies and strong relationships with global media. Their copywriting Content Studio offering combined with their strong media relationships really appealed. The team’s passion for their clients, products, and people really shone through. We are very much looking forward to working with the team at C8.”
