Background

We are now the largest independent web analytics agency in the UK. We have 30+ people in our office near Old Street Roundabout in central London, and are growing at 40% per year.

Our projects range from simple tag remediation and ad hoc reporting, to fully-integrated analytics implementations, automation, predictive modelling and machine learning. We created our product team in 2018 to build new SaaS products which could automate some of our professional services and accelerate global growth.

We launched Uplifter’s beta program in Lisbon Web Summit in Nov 2018 and were oversubscribed with potential customers from a wide range of geographies. We are now working to release version 1.0 in Q1 2019 and grow subscription revenue to a self-sustaining level.
