Newcastle Town Centre Partnership

www.visitcastle.co.uk

Newcastle Town Council, Newcastle Town Centre Partnership brings together retailers and businesses, who are all working towards one common goal – to be the best market town in Staffordshire. They aim to develop and sustain a vibrant and prosperous town centre

The Challenge - Create new website to attract new businesses to the town centre, support and promote the existing businesses, promote events and activities in the town. The ultimate challenge was to increase footfall to the town centre.

What We Did - Website designed to appeal to a wide audience and be as intuitive and as accessible as possible, utilising new technologies such as responsive web design to future proof and ensure it could be accessed on any mobile and traditional device. The website features events, deals, news and information on the town centre. Businesses are promoted on the website and each have a dedicated page, where they are able to update their business information, opening times, upload images, add local deals and promote their own events.

The majority of the content is generated by the businesses themselves, with the Town Centre Manager overseeing and moderating the content through a user friendly administration panel. We engaged with local businesses before the official site launch. Businesses were invited to use an online form several months before the website launched. We had a great response from over 100 businesses. This enabled us to pre-populate the website with content before the launch. Many more businesses have added themselves to the website since and early access users have been consistently adding their own deals and events to the website.

The Impact - Launch Web Analytics (First two weeks)
903 - Visitors
5,233 - Pageviews
32% - Browsing with mobile devices
4m 27s - Average Visitor Duration
5.8 - Pages per visit

Acca Tracker – Android App

The Challenge - Creation of Android App to compare betting odds for multiple football matches from multiple bookies. App also needed to be based on iOS version which had already been released. Technical issues which were overcome included mismatch of data between bookmakers and other data providers, meaning odds were not displayed, Caching data 'in-app' rather continuous pinging of servers meant an improvement in reliability.

What we did - App designed to appeal to a sports fans who are looking for the best for their chosen football match. Ensuring the app was robust and scalable meant it would not crash during high traffic times such as Saturday afternoon. The app offers the latest odds for matches in the UK, across Europe and the rest of the world. All major domestic leagues and cup competitions are covered.

Leagues and Matches are easy to navigate. Odds for all key outcomes and clearly laid out. Odds are supplied by major bookmakers and updated in real time to ensure that the latest odds are always available. Fixture listings are also pulled from 3rd party sources and checked at the back end of the app before appearing in the app.
