Blog 53


If like us, you’ve been humming along to festive songs and having mince pies as a snack for the past month, this can only mean that the Christmas is coming! We’re at the end of 2016 and it’s been a great year for us. We hope that you’re all finishing the year on a high note too.

2016 has been a year of great developments for Degree 53. We were delighted to find out we were listed among the top 50 fastest growing digital agencies in the North. We’re determined to keep improving our services and growing our business, and it’s a great indication of what we need to be aiming towards.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with fantastic clients - old and new - throughout the year. One of the highlights was launching Sofology’s My Account system which saw a 20% increase in customer satisfaction in the first month. Our team redesigned the website, which grew the casino operator’s traffic by over 30% and improving the user experience. We also worked on an online banking app for CardOneBanking, aiming to make this function easier and more accessible to everyone. In addition, we’ve continued smashing ongoing improvements and upgrades for Betfred’s betting and gaming services. We look forward to launching more projects that will make a positive change for the businesses we work with.

There have also been internal changes with new hires and our effort to make sure our employees are happy at Degree 53. We’ve created a new breakout area where everyone can chill out and play video games to get away from their desk. We also carried on the tradition of going away on a team holiday, this time to Ibiza, which was a blast. To make it more interesting, we’ve gone on a few walks and even took part in extreme sporting events, like Tough Mudder, Total Warrior and Survival of the Fittest. And, we have now added Darts, Mario Kart and Fifa tournaments to our perks list. Our team is growing and we’ve got some fantastic vacancies available too!

We’d like to thank all our clients, partners, employees and everyone else that we work with for your ongoing support. We hope to continue this in the new year with more awesome projects and new developments. 

The team at Degree 53 would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! See you on the other side!
