What We Do
What people say about us
– Richard Cooper, VP, International Marketing Strategy, FIS - http://www.fisglobal.com/
The appointment of Portfolio Communications following FIS’ acquisition of EFD (eFunds International), formalised our commitment to building a positive media presence for FIS outside of the USA. Portfolio rose to the challenge of raising awareness of FIS’ extended range of products and services – and a couple of years later, added Metavante to the mix.
Although the core programme focused on EMEA, Portfolio has supported FIS as far afield as the Baltics, Asia Pacific, China and South America, producing thought leadership and by-lined opinion articles, proactively pitching stories, and writing and distributing press releases. The team also managed media interviews and industry analyst briefings, ran an awards entry programme and took the lead in bringing FIS EMEA into the increasingly important world of social media and corporate blogging. It has been a pleasure working with them.
– Lawrence Knowles, Vice Chairman, MidlandHR - http://www.midlandhr.com
Portfolio Communications has been a key partner of MidlandHR for many years. The consultancy is especially strong in creating and delivering thought leadership and research-based programmes, playing a major role in building our brand, positioning MidlandHR as a premier provider of industry-leading payroll and HR software and services.
– Howard White, Lead Consultant, Waste2Tricity - http://www.waste2tricity.com/
Portfolio Communications commenced its brief for Waste2Tricity at the formation of the company. The resultant PR coverage, in the first 6 months, has taken Waste2Tricity into the forefront of the environmental energy from waste market and Waste2Tricity is now perceived, deservedly, as the market leader. Having worked with several large PR companies in the past I have been impressed with the dedication and levels of resultant coverage across the broad spectrum of media. I have never recommended a PR company in the past but would have no hesitation in putting Portfolio forward to a third party.
– Peter Titmus, Chairman, Networks First - http://www.networksfirst.com/
Portfolio has proved to us the value of well thought out, strategic PR. Working closely with us to meet our business and marketing objectives, the team at Portfolio has a knack of taking technical issues and translating them in a way that truly resonates with a business audience. Introducing us to PR techniques that we had not tried before, we have been able to elevate network support services as a topical issue within the media and open up new channels of communication with our audiences.
Portfolio has been responsible for establishing regular contact with our partner community through our partner communication, Ntouch, and more open dialogue with end users. More recently, Portfolio played an important role in helping us to establish our social media presence from blogging and Twitter to networking sites and online discussions. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
– John Mills, Chairman, MidlandHR - http://www.midlandhr.com/
Portfolio Communications works closely with MidlandHR, providing us with strategic advice and a robust PR programme covering a range of communication techniques. This has resulted in real and measurable business benefit, including being invited to tender for business as a direct result. Based on the success of the MidlandHR PR programme, we also appointed Portfolio to work for our sister company, ABM.
– Fabio Torlini, Marketing Director, Rackspace Managed Hosting Europe - http://www.rackspace.co.uk/
Portfolio worked with Rackspace for five years. Their experienced team supported us from our launch in Europe to becoming the UK’s fastest growing managed hosting provider. The team’s enthusiasm and creativity helped us win numerous awards including the UNISYS sponsored Management Today Service Excellence Awards and the Sunday Times Best Place to Work Award where we ranked at number six in the Small Business category.
Coverage increased by 500% and Portfolio helped ensure that Rackspace had a reputation that led to recommendation. The team also helped position our spokespeople as industry commentators through press roundtables and speaking opportunities. I thoroughly recommend Portfolio for their professionalism, hard work and people!
