Glide is a real-time, web based solution designed to cater for the needs of PR and communications teams in the digital age.
Glide was formed in 2003 by CEO Sam Phillips. After working with PR departments and journalists on a regular basis, Sam identified the need for a web-based system that would make life easier for both the PR teams and the media and the concept of Glide was born.
Since then, Glide has grown rapidly into the thriving business it is today with a permanent staff of 30+ and over 65 major clients, including: Barclays, Sony, Sainsburys, eBay, npower, John Lewis, Network Rail, Eurostar, O2 and the government’s new distribution service.
Glide is backed by venture capital funding from Alcuin Capital Partners, a strong partnership that has enabled Glide to invest in the technology and people necessary to continually evolve the product so that our clients can stay on top of new challenges facing the PR and communications industry.
UPDATE: Glide was acquired by NASDAQ OMX in October 2011 for an undisclosed sum. http://www.globenewswire.com/newsroom/news.html?d=235616
