Chancellor officially opens Pressglue HQ
Jonathan Farber, founder of the online publishing tool pressglue.com and the main management team welcomed George Osborne into their newly appointed and somewhat pink offices in Knutsford before cutting the ribbon and launching the business in the North West.
Pressglue has been in a structured development cycle for over twelve months and the opening of the Knutsford office demonstrates that the tecnology and the development is reaching maturity
The project first appeared online in August 2011 and its continued developmental growth is due to Co-Founder John Haynes who's £205,000 investment and commercial expertise created early-stage foundation and opperating funds for real viability.
The digital tool is designed to offer Schools, Charities and Volunteer groups an easy way to publish their news content quickly without the need for wasteful printing or heavy technical knowledge.
Jonathan Farber said "We created the software in a specific way so that Schools can now save time and money by neutralising any need to run print or photocopies which are costly resources”
"Most of their websites need real support because Schools also insist on uploading and emailing out 'documents' instead of capturing attention with rich, sharable news content. This is exactly what pressglue offers; A more engaging, easier way to champion the successes of teachers, pupils and parents. simply put you Just Add News"
"Although very exciting, we really can't say a great deal about the next project but, it will add fantastic learning value and equip school leavers and university graduates with a better chance of a job in media or journalism"
George commented: "This is a great way for local schools and charities to keep in touch quickly and without spending money on costly printing and photocopying."
