2017 was a year to remember for Screendragon. Tech London Advocates recognised us as one of the Top 50 London Creative Tech Start-up Companies of 2017. One of our events – Adapt or Die: What Will a Future Agency Look Like – managed to garner the attention of the London agency community, proving to be a talking point even many months after the event. And, just before the year was out, from across the pond we received one hell of a nod from the prestigious CIO Review – they listed us as one of the 20 Most Promising Workflow Solution Providers of 2017!Read Story

For many in-house marketing departments, the concept of having a quality marketing project management solution in place is a no-brainer. After all, what marketing team wouldn’t want a platform that allows them to collaborate with fellow team members, get better visibility and control of projects and automate key processes to deliver a more consistent and quality output? More often than not however, it’s not the marketing department or even the Head of Marketing who has the power to make that all important, game-changing purchase – it’s “the business”.Read Story

Recently, our Cork team made the move to brand new offices. The new space is a big jump; it's over double the size of our previous premises, has more private offices, more natural light and a lot more character!
With the continued expansion of the company, we needed more square footage and plenty of room to continue to grow.Read Story

They say that all publicity is good publicity but that’s certainly not the case when it comes to the problem of data breaches. This unsavoury trend has seen a sharp increase in recent years and 2017 would certainly win the award of “year of the data breach”. First there was Sports Direct who had to admit to their entire workforce that their personal credentials including their bank details had been stolen. The mobile operator ‘Three’ also had over 200,000 of its customer details stolen. This was in addition to a major data breach in 2016 which put millions of customers’ data at risk. Wonga also fell victim, leaking potentially 245,000 of its customer’s person details. But all of those were mere minnows when compared to Zomato who had a database of 17 million customers stolen and don’t forget the NHS whose data breach could have affected over 26 million patients.Read Story

More and more companies are moving their marketing and advertising in-house. Earlier this year, it was reported that 44% of brands are considering establishing an in-house capability in 2017. Significant cost savings and speed-to-market benefits are deemed as the key drivers behind this move. At Screendragon, we have helped some of our clients make the transition to an in-house agency model through the support of our robust software platform. In fact, we recently shared our experience in this area at a masterclass entitled "How to Build an In-House Agency for Success" at The Hoxton in London.
We thought it worthwhile to continue the conversation with a series of informative posts on our blog. In the first in a series of posts around building an in-house agency, we provide some key tips on how to ensure buy-in for your in-house agency.Read Story

Agencies are taking a hammering lately. They're "too slow", "too expensive" and "not adaptable enough". The in-house agency revolution has further fueled the debate; many brands are asking why they should be paying for external agencies, when they can get the work done in-house seemingly faster, and for less money.
Serving both agency and in-house agency teams, we understand the challenges and triumphs of both. At our London Technology Week event last week "Adapt or Die – What Will a Future Agency Look Like?", we decided to bring both parties together to fight their respective corners – and of course, provide some valuable learnings along the way too.Read Story
