Earlier this year, the teams from Interactive Red and MoCo Software Solutions hatched a plan to join forces and work as one new brand - Kayo Digital.
By combining the web development skills of Interactive Red's team and the software and mobile app development skills from MoCo Software Solutions, Kayo was born and offers a combined experience of more than 20 years and an impressive client roster.
After completing the integration of our successful teams we then wanted to ensure Kayo's design methodology was as robust and scientific as possible in order to complement our class leading technical ability and decided to investigate the talent Kent had to offer.
We discovered Squiders - an award winning Maidstone based creative agency - and immediately set about discussions to try and bring their talent and resources in-house through acquisition.
On the 1st June 2018, Squiders became part of the Kayo team.
Managing Director - Richard Pilton - explains the decision: "As Kent's number one technical agency we mustn't rest on our laurels. Kayo has grown through acquisition of the very best talent available and after investigation and discussions with Squiders' Director, Kris Jeary, we knew we had the right partner to move forward with. We are over the moon with where we are heading and Squiders' unique skillset compliments our existing team perfectly - the future is looking great for Kayo!".
Kris from Squiders is excited by the acquisition as it gives him access to resources that were previously not available - "I'm delighted, the team at Kayo have a clear direction, it became immediately obvious that we shared the same values of quality and customer service. Our methodologies aligned really well and all of us appreciate the power of proper research and the scientific method in delivering digital solutions that are not only great to look at but work hard for our clients and help them grow their business. I took no time at all in deciding this was the way forward, the way to reach and help the most people".
Kayo are proud to be in Kent and based at the wonderful Kent Science Park, many plans are afoot to help as many Kent businesses as possible harness the power of smart technology through digital, software and mobile solutions, they have everything all in one place and all in house.
