1. Probably the FIRST ever company to perform search engine optimisation in anger
Back in 1995/6 our co-founder and MD Carl Spencer was invited to audit a piece of software deployed by the Ministry of Defence for evaluating bids for large scale research and development projects involving hundreds of millions of pounds.
As one of only 4 representatives from the entire UK defence industry Carl was then a highly sought after employee within British Aerospace and, later as a freelance consultant helping defence companies write bids to “beat” the software. This being highly advanced optimisation aimed at an advanced search engine working with un-published rules. The largest of these bids being valued at $1.5Bn [yes billion!]
Our co-founder and MD Carl Spencer holds the claim to be the first person ever in the UK to operate a large scale Taguchi experiment. Again, working with British Aerospace Carl first managed an experiment back in 1988 and valued at £200,000 into the improvement of the production process of a strategic piece of equipment used by both the British and US armies.
Carl then went on to assist in 2 other experiments led by other BAE factories before then operating probably the first ever large scale experiment applied in the UK to a research and development project as part of his thesis this being entitled “Design Optimisation and the Application of Taguchi Methods in Shaped Charged Warheads.”
25 years on Taguchi and multivariate testing has become the latest tool in optimising your website to convert existing traffic into more business.

3. First Independent Agency to have Researched the Online Presence of 1.7M UK Businesses
Back in the day when local business where hard to find online, we were the first and probably the only company to have comprehensively researched the internet presence of over 1.7M UK businesses during the UK Online for Business era on behalf of over 20 government agencies.
The work was a huge success and a number of government agencies where able to identify local business that may be eligible for grants and support for online activities.
Before the days of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We created a brand monitoring solution – Yalert. This software was one of the first of its kind in the UK and Europe. It was deployed on behalf of clients during 2005 after development by Carl whilst on a years sabbatical from the business working at Lancaster University at Infolab21.
