LiveLink were proud to sponsor Best use of IT at the EDT Contribution to Business awards 2016 held in London.
EDT delivers over 30,000 STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) experiences each year, for young people across the UK, with a range of work related learning schemes provide opportunities to enhance their technical, personal and employability skills through industry-led projects, industrial placements and specialised taster courses.
EDT also runs the Year in Industry - paid career development work placements for students completing A levels or as part of a university sandwich year and LiveLink is actively looking to recruit one of the UK's best and brightest through this scheme.
The winner of of the Best Use of IT was Fahad Rage whose innovative and industry leading use of a variety of IT created a mobile app which enables overhead railway equipment designers to enter data in an easy to follow format… and receive feedback which saves installation time and money for those in the field.
LiveLink would like to congratulate Fahad and wish him all the very best in the future.
With this new site up and running we are looking forward to 2016 !

We look forward to posting the latest news here as and when it comes.
I am a Belgian/American who moved to the UK, to study Graphic and Media Design at the University of the Arts London. Having graduated, I wanted to get away from the big city in search for my first job... that's when I came across LiveLink.
I was happy to hear how flexible they were when I requested a Skype interview (being out of the country at the time) and after having met them, was absolutely thrilled to land the job! My work varies across different areas of design, dabbling in some coding and more client facing tasks.
I love that LiveLink has given me the opportunity to explore and enhance my skills in different fields. I also feel very lucky to be a part of such a friendly and inclusive company who have helped me create a new home away from home.
Meet one of LiveLink's development team who is also the founder of Black Girls Tech, Damilola Odelola, told The Voice about the imbalance she has been trying to correct
There's an initiative to get more women in tech, which is absolutely necessary, Odelola says but the industry is blindsiding the fact that there's also not many non-whites in tech. And where there are, they're not usually in high positions.
That's not to say that computer programming and software development are discriminatory environments to work in. They are largely progressive industries and Odelola acknowledges that the support of online tech communities and the generosity of individuals sharing their knowledge.
She's not disheartened. Quite the opposite, it's an opportunity. She says people see what she's doing as a type of activism. She talks about a friend of hers - a black woman who has risen to the position of lead developer in the space of three years - and refers to the hoops she had to jump through. There's admiration in her voice and perhaps a hint of what inspired her to set up her own enterprise.
Odelola encourages those who are daunted by the technical aspects of computer programming to shake off those fears.
The only maths I did was GCSE and I only liked algebra, she says. There is a mathematical element to coding but really it's more about creating something from nothing and making the impossible possible. It's about asking ourselves what tools we need to make this web page flash when it's opened in the browser.
She continues: I didn't know I liked tech until I had to make my own website. I want to get old and young black and ethnic minority women enjoying tech.
Digital company LiveLink Tech Ltd has demonstrated how creative carpet design can set the tone for the whole building at its new offices in Havant.
The company specified 60m2 of Supacord tiles in Graphite, Steel Grey and Red for the refurbished former Havant Council building, working with nationwide flooring contractor Enhanced Floors.
Enhanced Floors recommended that LiveLink chose Supacord by Heckmondwike FB because of its wide choice of colours and its durability
Geoff Youngs, Technical Director at LiveLink, wanted a Space Invaders' theme to his office. He liked the idea of using the floor space to create an eye-catching design, which was possible due to the versatility of Supacord tiles.
Graphite was used for the background colourway, with Steel Grey chosen for the alien’s body and Red for the eyes, creating a result that was inspired by the design of the original 1978 arcade game.
The whole impact was enhanced with black window frames, red window sills and a large glass door etched with a screen shot from the retro game.
Geoff Youngs said
Personalisation is at the core of our business, both for our clients and our clients’ clients. We wanted to create a working environment that reflects both our culture and our strategic priorities. The vibrant carpet tiles gave us the freedom we are used to with computers to personalise the floor with pixels. The result looks fantastic and has generated lots of positive comments from everyone who has seen it.”
Andrew Bradley, Director at Enhanced Floors, said:
We have worked with Heckmondwike FB for over 20 years and Supacord can be relied upon to provide good performance over the long term. It was the obvious choice for us to recommend it for creating the striking impression that LiveLink wanted to create!

Support's Top Tips
Ensure your equipment is running in tip-top condition by purging out old files, ensuring good ventilation around kiosks and running the latest version of LiveLink’s software. Software updates are free in contract and costly when not (in time and money). With Licence and Support Contracts starting from as little as £195 per year / kiosk, it is a vital and cost effective route to long term satisfaction.
David joined LiveLink as Graphic Designer in May. Here are few things he had to say about his new role:
My primary role is to create new product templates for our clients, using previous experience in a customer-facing environment to offer the most friendly and efficient service possible. I also assist with product photography, photo editing and web design. The chance to experience a little bit of everything is the best thing about the job, every day feels like a new challenge.
After graduating from Portsmouth University I set myself up as a freelance illustrator and soon accepted commissions, discovering a talent for graphics that would later extend to web design. I also gained experience in marketing, customer services and operations management and dabbled in bookkeeping and admin.
The amount of collective knowledge here at LiveLink is overwhelming, everybody is an expert in something and I feel privileged to be able to enhance my skills in a nurturing environment where development is encouraged. A career in the design sector has been my ambition for as long as I can remember, and to fulfil that ambition in such an innovative and inspiring company is already better than I could have hoped for.

Watch out for further news soon
Jamie Brown has joined LiveLink to help introduce 3D Design to both the company and its clients.
I'm building high quality 3D renders of our products and getting these models into a library which will allow 3D rotating previews of our products for the customer. We also intend to show products in real life situations such as a living room or kitchen... creating great up-sell potential.
Before joining LiveLink, I worked in television post-production for 8 years, making high profile commercials for well known brands. A switch to video, working within a new department, meant lots of responsibility and diversification. I began to develop 3D modelling and built models, textured, animated and rendered assets for companies such as Nickelodeon, Channel 4, Diageo and even a graphical section for the most recent series of Britain's Got Talent.
I joined LiveLink because of the exciting opportunities offered working with 3D in a field where it's not been used before and the technology is constantly being pushed. The people here are great fun and great at what they do. I'm loving being closer to home and cycling to work along the coastline is an amazing privilege. I'm hoping to help LiveLink push even further ahead of its competitors... and for a few more trips on the company boat!
