The first commercial company to use recently launched Living Archive, Pharos will be using the online platform to tell its own story from 2003 where it all started, to today. The digital exercise will create a legacy which will explain exactly what the company does and what they stand for.
Living Archive is the perfect platform to humanise a company, to store all media in one place and to curate and exhibit projects, work, partnerships and successes, demonstrating your impact. As the user, the company can decide what is public, private and what is channelled to chosen audiences.
Phil Walker, CEO of Pharos Offshore brought in Living Archive, as it is an exciting time of growth and development for the company who have subsea equipment and people working 24/7 around the globe. He said:
“We are in the process of a growth strategy and part of that is to strengthen the brand through use of what we have done and what we do. The Pharos Living Archive will tell the story from being a one-man start-up, to the large company that employs over 70 people in Blyth.
“Living Archive is an exciting way for us to create an understanding between the stakeholders, staff and customers. We can uphold our key messages and the values that underpin our company, in a way that is rarely put out there. It will display our resilience, optimism, and is a strong way to tell our story of authenticity, culture and history.”
