Q2 2019

2 EU BUSINESS NEWS / Q2 2019 Editor’s Note , Welcome to the Q2 issue of EU Business News, a quarterly publication designed to provide you with all the latest updates and insights from across the European Union. In this month’s edition, we discover more about how ‘Vlogging’ can be a useful marketing tool for companies and could potentially help them to expand their business. Whilst on the topic of updates in the digital space, 360 onlineprint the Portuguese start-up, specialized in marketing services and products, has announced that it is expanding its sales territory. In addition to this, the firm is now also active in the United Kingdom. This strategic decision has been taken after receiving funds amounting to 20.4 million dollars (15,5 million pounds), which will be also used to extend their range of products and invest in technology and R&D. Also in this issue, Applause, one of the worldwide leaders in digital quality and crowdsourced testing, has recently released the global findings of its annual Retail Quality Report. It shows that global retailers are failing to keep up with consumer expectations for optimised digital experiences. Elsewhere in this edition, local MSP and Scottish Government Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Economy and Fair Work, Derek Mackay MSP has revealed two prototype homes at Taylor Wimpey’s Dargavel Village development at Bishopton. These prototypes aim to respond to customer feedback and gather information, changing the way one of the UK’s largest housebuilders hopes to build homes in the future. The team here at EU Business, we truly hope that you thoroughly enjoy reading this month’s edition and look forward to hearing from you.
