8 Solutions, the UK’s leading data centre healthcare company specialising in the cleaning and decontamination of critical environments has appointed KISS Communications to handle its marketing and PR. The award winning East of England agency will begin working with 8 Solutions on 1 October and will focus on a campaign aimed at raising awareness of the company through PR, advertising, exhibitions and digital. Mark Plant CEO at 8 Solutions said, “8 Solutions services many of the world’s largest organisations, including the majority of the FTSE 100. Data Centres are now “Mission Critical” for most companies and contamination and poor maintenance can cause costly downtime and even invalidate hardware warranties. The marketing campaign will put a strong emphasis on the benefits of preventative maintenance and risk mitigation.” Mark continues, “KISS Communications stood out from the other agencies we saw and impressed us with their understanding of the brief and their inspired creativity.” Commenting on this latest win, Simon Fryer, Managing Director at KISS said, “We are excited about working with 8 Solutions. In a market worth £40 million in the UK, there are huge opportunities for growth. The company has a number of key areas of differentiation and we are looking forward to working with the team to engage with decision-makers.” The KISS team will include Simon Fryer (Managing Director), Richard Bland (Creative Director), Justine Smith (PR Director), Sara Paine (PR Associate) and Sarah Reakes (Strategy Planner).
