Cantarus Named as Number 24 in The Prolific North Top 50 Digital Agencies 2019

March 2019 2 min read

After another hugely successful year, Cantarus is thrilled to have been named as number 24 in the highly anticipated Prolific North Top 50 Digital Agencies 2019. This is a great move up the ladder from last year, where they slotted in at number 29.

Prolific North’s list celebrates success within the digital industry. In order to claim a spot, Prolific North evaluates each digital agency on financials including balance sheet/shareholder funds, turnover, pre-tax profit, headcount and growth.

Cantarus is an award-winning digital agency that helps clients create and improve engaging digital experiences and deliver exceptional results. Projects comprise of rebranding organisations, building mobile apps, designing websites, hosting and creative strategy consultancy. Cantarus’ notable clients include e-commerce giant Sports Direct and worldwide payment processor, Worldpay. Cantarus is also the 6th largest digital agency in Manchester, as well as a top-5 Manchester independent digital agency, so for them to make such a great spot in the list is a wonderful achievement.

Lee Adams, CEO of Cantarus, comments:

After seeing a remarkable jump from #55 to #29 in 2018 (no other agency gained more places), we’re honoured and delighted to have been named by Prolific North as one of the north’s top fifty digital agencies for the second year running. This reflects another year of fantastic growth – powered by a team I believe is the best in the business – as we increased revenue by 52% year-on-year whilst also improving our profit margins and customer satisfaction ratings. We look forward to continuing to sharpen our focus on partnering with ambitious organisations to create truly exceptional digital experiences that empower them to execute their strategies.”

Recent work has involved Cantarus’ innovative leading app platform for membership, MemConnect. MemConnect is revolutionary for organisations as it is fully customised for each brand and combines content from multiple existing sources all in one easy-to-use app. Cantarus designed and developed an app for retail property organisation, Revo, that allowed the organisation to engage with their members on a more regular basis. Features of the app include a member directory, member-to-member instant messaging, push notifications and engaging surveys. Also, none of the other agencies in the top 50 list have a lower headcount than Cantarus, so this just highlights the productivity of the team.

Cantarus also built the website for the INTO University partner portal based in Manchester. INTO specialises in building global relationships with universities in the USA, China, as well as the UK. Cantarus developed a fantastic online ‘Global Partner Portal’ which ensured that the initial application process was much smoother than the previous handwritten process, and there was a move away from the reliance on paper-based collateral and towards a more digital modernised approach. INTO has seen a huge increase in the number of daily applications and the time spent on processing applications has now reduced.
