Nottingham Digital Product Agency celebrates success in turbulent year

AtomicMedia, Nottingham’s award-winning digital product agency, has experienced significant growth in what has been a difficult year for so many businesses.

2020 has seen the agency expand its team, with twelve new appointments made since July alone. The appointments come after AtomicMedia has secured a number of significant new contracts since lockdown began.

One such contract was with construction equipment manufacturers JCB, whomAtomicMedia has recently helped launch a new customer telematics platform.The system allows JCB owners to access real time data about their fleet of machines from anywhere in the world, which has been especially important for security during the recent lockdowns. The launch has been a resounding success and is already being used to monitor over 100,000 machines. Headed up by AtomicMedia’s Technical Director Andy Webber, he said:

"We're really pleased that the initial launch went so well and we're very excited to be partnering with JCB on their next generation of digital products". 

Managing Director Duncan Beiley said:

“Although based in Nottingham our clients are worldwide and the dedicated work of everyone at AtomicMedia during lockdown has enabled our company to successfully turn our clients challenges into opportunities for our business.

“Coming back to the office and seeing so many new team members has been really encouraging. The last few months has produced dozens of unexpected challenges for everyone but we’ve been able to lead, adapt and grow whilst continuing to deliver the level of service we pride ourselves on to our clients. This is a testament both to those who have been with us for years and the new members of our team. I can’t wait to get involved in the exciting projects we have lined up in 2021 and believe these new additions will allow us, and subsequently our clients, to thrive.”
