Cantarus Shortlisted for ‘Large Digital Agency of the Year’ Award

April 2018 2 min read

Cantarus has been shortlisted for a 2018 Prolific North award in the ‘Large Digital Agency of the Year’ category. The awards recognise the excellence of the creative industries based in the north of England and will be held in the Principal Hotel in Manchester: a fitting venue for what hopes to be a great night filled with talented people chatting about the things that matter to them. The dinner is set to take place on Thursday 24th May, meaning the team will need to move quickly to secure a group deal on some dinner jackets.

Cantarus Co-founder and Managing Director, Lee Adams said of the nomination “Being considered for such an award is an affirmation of all of the hard work from every single member of the team at Cantarus. It would be impossible to deliver such spectacular results to our clients if we could not count on the passion and commitment demonstrated by our people. I’m very lucky to work with a team who love what they do, and also enjoy building long-term working relationships with clients.”

Cantarus has delivered a number of high-profile projects in the last 12 months, including work for WHSmith, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, the Association of Anaesthetists, and the Institute of Directors. The Cantarus approach is based on providing ongoing value beyond project go-live. Cantarus’ investment in its Customer Success team delivers operational support to clients, but also identifies opportunities to help them stay ahead of their competitors.

“That we have been shortlisted as a ‘large’ digital agency, is a monumental achievement in itself. Fifteen years ago, we began as a two-person IT solutions provider, and now – due to incredible growth in the past few years – we are a 34-person digital agency that delivers outstanding work for some of the world’s best-know brands. It’s great to see the list of names that we are compared to in the same category, these are some of the brightest agencies in the business.”

Cantarus’ success has been founded, not only on the quality of its digital solutions, but also on the knowledge and experience in applying the right solutions in the right circumstances.  

“Each project begins with an extensive discovery phase where we get to know the client – and their needs and ambitions – inside and out.” Continued Lee “Once we get to know each other, we then aim to simplify; we want to make sure that the client’s infrastructure, process, and message is easy to understand for both themselves and their customers. By following these principles, we aim facilitate growth and help position the client as a leader in their respective industry.

Lee’s final thoughts “Whilst it’s great to be recognised, it’s not the aim. We produce great work because we love what we do, and we love making our clients happy.”
