Case study: Kayo Digital - Kent Science Park

Having been based at Kent Science Park since 2017, Kayo Digital is a leading technical agency in Kent, which helps its clients to grow their business through research and evidence-based activities. The company has over 20 years’ experience and has grown to a team of 13 digital experts.

Kayo Digital’s clients include Veolia, the NHS, Three and Kent Community Foundation, who they have supported to stand out from the crowd with progressive websites, bespoke software digital marketing campaigns and apps. The company prides itself on advising and helping companies meet their business goals, through technology; enabling them to develop and adapt in the toughest of situations.

Named Sittingbourne Business of the Year at the Swale Business Awards 2019, Kayo Digital’s latest award win was at the UK Agency Awards in November 2020. The company was awarded Best Crisis Communications or Response Campaign for their work with Watts Farm, a food supplier for restaurants, schools and supermarkets that adapted to sell directly to the public during the pandemic. Kayo Digital created a new e-commerce website, with click and collect and delivery capabilities. They also aided and advised Watts Farm’s digital marketing – helping them to get in front of a new audience.

Harry Dance, Head of Digital Marketing, explains why Kayo Digital chose Kent Science Park as its home: “We’ve been based at the park for nearly three years and it’s a great location for our business – centrally located for our team to get to. It also has great facilities and outdoor space, which is great if we ever have clients visit our office.”

With over 200 businesses across a range of sectors, Kent Science Park prides itself on its community of innovators and collaborators. Harry continues: “I’d say one of the best things about being based here is the fantastic business community. Being surrounded by like-minded companies who are also looking to innovate and grow makes it a great place to work.”

He concludes by looking ahead to the new year: “We’re a very aspirational company that is looking to grow and develop quickly. We want to help more companies use technology to develop and innovate and we can only do this by growing our reach.

“We aspire to continue to help businesses grow and in the more online-based world we’re living in, there has never been a more important time to use technology and evidence to develop.”
