Facetime and footfall: driving in-person engagement with online and digital tools

• 03/08/2018 4:57 PM
We love digital and online tools maybe more than most, but, even with all the increasingly advanced tech available, the most important thing for many businesses is still getting customers through the door. Studies have shown that the vast majority of shoppers still prefer to go to a brick and mortar store over shopping online, and there’s good reason for that. Seeing products in real life with your real life eyes gives you all kinds of information you can’t get from a photo on the internet – it says it’s your size, but does that coat actually fit? – not to mention the sensory experience of shopping, which is a draw in itself.

Planning a wedding can be fraught, but thankfully the rise of online tools is making the process easier by the day.

Appointedd customer The Wedding Gallery - the world's first wedding department store - knows this and has helpfully created a one-stop shop for everything you need to say 'I do', complete with online booking for planning your visit.

Appointedd’s Dispatches from 10 Downing Street

• 11/30/2017 11:13 AM
 Whilst waiting on a delayed King’s Cross train a couple of weeks ago, I saw the announcement in the morning news of a £21 million project, going by the name Tech Nation, dedicated to boosting Britain’s tech sector, as well as the government reaffirming its commitment to innovation in the UK. Along with doubling the number of visas available to the brightest and best talent from around the world, the Prime Minister also announced a new £20 million fund to help public services take advantage of UK expertise in innovative technologies like artificial intelligence.

10 tiny ways to keep productivity up right to the end of Friday

• 11/24/2017 10:03 AM
It is well known that the laws of time and space mean nothing during the last half an hour of work on Friday, which has been scientifically proven (read: decided by me) to be the longest half an hour of the week. One minute it's 4:46 PM and twenty minutes later it's somehow only 4:47 PM. You need to finish up this niggling, fiddly job you've been putting off all week, and it would be helpful to get ahead on Monday, but suddenly here you are, trapped in a slump so deep your chin is milimetres from your navel, moving glacially towards close of business.
