North Wales tech company receives honour from Google

A North Wales-based tech company specialising in website and app design has received a rare honour from search giant Google.

Livetech, which is located in Llandudno, has become one of 5,000 official Google Partners worldwide – the only one in Conwy, Gwynedd, Anglesey or Denbighshire.

To qualify for this award, Livetech had to show excellent customer service, and its managing director Paul Levy sat a series of complex exams.

As a result of this achievement, the company’s employees are now able to manage Adwords accounts and can use Google’s branding in its own marketing efforts.

The company claims the coveted accreditation will help it differentiate itself from competing businesses and give peace of mind to existing and future clients.

It’ll also get access to additional services, products and information to assist it in providing the best possible products and services to customers.

Levy, an engineering graduate, set up the firm almost 16 years ago after working in the aerospace industry and as a teacher. In 2015, Livetech moved to the former North Wales headquarters of the National Trust.

He said: “We’re really thrilled to be awarded the Google Partner status, it is a fantastic honour to have this official endorsement from Google which will help us really stand out from the crowd.

“There are only 5,000 Full Google Partners in the whole world with three billion web users – that means Livetech are literally almost one in a million!

“There are a whole host of companies out there offering these services, but there are very few companies that have a proper business focused approach to get the results for people and return on investment and that’s what it’s all about with Google really.

“They want to make sure that you have the technical knowhow and they also want to make sure you’ve got the business case properly in mind.

He added: “New clients will now be able to find us using the Google’s Partners Search to match their requirements with Livetech.

“As Google Partners, Livetech now have direct access to special training materials, direct phone support and product news direct from Google AdWords.

“This helps us to stay active, up to date and to always ensure your Pay Per Click campaigns are fully optimised to deliver the best results possible.”
