Our co-founder, Lisa, commented “We’re honoured to have been shortlisted as a finalist in the Salford Business Awards and we think it just goes to show how Media City is helping to shape Salford. Most User Experience agencies are based in London but we feel that Media City has and will continue to bring great opportunities for local businesses so we’re sticking around! Keepitusable now has many well known household brands as clients, including Media City’s prestigious resident, the BBC. We’re a user experience agency which means we help companies to create products and services that customers will love using. We research and analyse real human behaviour and interaction with technology then design around this to create more profitable, customer-centric products and services.”

Paul Wainwright, Chair of The Business Group commented:  ‘Once again we’ve had a record number of entries and our finalists reflect the diverse nature of the vibrant Salford business community.  Choosing the finalists has been even more difficult than in previous years and all who entered should be proud of their achievements to date.  We very much look forward to joining them in celebrating their successes and continued growth at the award ceremony on the 31st May.’

Salford’s City Mayor, Ian Stewart, said:  ‘The people shortlisted for these awards make such a great contribution to this city that it is absolutely right that they receive recognition for the fantastic work they do. Now, more than ever, we need to be supporting our business community, as they have the potential to provide the economic lift we need to bring jobs and prosperity to the city. The achievement of these companies, despite tough economic times, is testament to the great work that is going on in salford.
