Their expertise helps to enhance the effects of the PR and marketing campaigns of their clients and involves working with some of the most well-known and successful media platforms in the world. With just over fifty team members, Lift Consulting has an enviable track record, earning it the distinction of the most awarded communications consultancy in Portugal. In short, Lift understands what it takes to deliver client value at the very highest levels of extremely competitive industries.


Lift are experts in PR, not IT

Streamlining the process of creating and managing communication across multiple clients while allowing for future growth became an issue at Lift. They considered building their own in-house solution to expand their PR capabilities but quickly realized that the necessary skill sets were outside their core competencies. Pivoting from PR to IT was not the optimal use of their time and resources. Deciding it was better to focus on their core mission and look for the right partner to deliver what they needed, Lift began to consider their options for a full suite of PR tools.
