We have recently changed webcast providers and, after only two events with Northcote, it is apparent to ourselves and users of the webcast that we now have a far superior product.
The on-site team are proactive in coming up with suggestions and solutions and they work well with our own technical experts. They also make senior management feel at ease. Overall, we have been so impressed with their work that we have recommended them to other departments within our organisation. We rely on our webcast working efficiently and being top quality, given our dual-listing and large audience in Australia, and I have full confidence in the Northcote team to keep delivering a superior product.-- Mav Wynn, Head of Investor Relations, Henderson Group plc
Northcote Internet’s webcasts currently serve as a key component to our Investor Relations results communications process. Bede and his team offer us a versatile approach to our needs and a one stop solution.
Northcote Internet has also produced the videos for our online Annual Report for the past two years. Their creative skills have given our videos an extra edge. The team always receive positive feedback from all involved at Barclays, with complements on their professional, discreet manner. The team know how to make any speaker at ease, creating a comfortable environment for them to speak calmly and give the best possible footage.
Bede has his finger on the pulse of new technology and is always keen to make the most of our webcasts using the best possible solutions. An example of this is the iPad version of our results is now available for mobile use. Tablets are increasingly popular and Bede appreciates the importance of current technology and our image.-- Maritz Carvalho, Associate Director, Investor Relations, Barclays plc
We have had the pleasure of working with Northcote for many years, during which time they have produced all of our investor webcasts.
The team work well with our senior management and they have also successfully delivered projects for other internal departments on our recommendation including videos for use internally and externally.They have helped us enormously in some highly challenging situations, for example working effectively with our IT team under significant time pressure to find an innovative solution to ensure a signal could be transmitted from one of our training centres, whilst also assisting with the live event production.
The team are friendly, approachable and experienced and we trust them implicitly to provide a discrete, professional and high quality service, allowing us to focus on our side of the event.-- Andrew Page - Director of Investor Relations, Centrica plc
Lloyds Banking Group have been working with Northcote for the last 12 years during which time they have effectively delivered webcasts for our corporate results announcements and assisted with other corporate activities. In particular for our capital raising in late 2009 they developed a ground breaking system for restricting access to deal documents. Throughout this time they have looked after us professionally whilst delivering in a calm and efficient manner. The webcasts always run smoothly no matter what and we would have no hesitation in recommending them.-- Douglas Radcliffe, Head of Operations & Reporting, Investor Relations , Lloyds Banking Group
We have been working with Northcote for over 5 years as both a public company and following the transition to a private company. They have looked after us professionally, always being calm and efficient and managing the many personalities involved in results presentations, but also in the more painstaking work to build and further develop our website according to business requirements. The webcasts always went smoothly no matter what new challenge was asked for and they took on the difficult job of hosting our main site when our developers couldn't meet the requirements for professional liability and defined service levels. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.-- Andrew Hanson, Head of Communications, 2 Sisters Food Group
