Commenting on the remarkable success of the North East service, Community Web Editor Alison Nicholson says: “We go the extra mile to ensure community groups get what they need from their website, no matter what it entails. Reputation, trust and personal service are vital.
"Newsquest North East is a high profile, customer-oriented business. CommuniGate staff are in the ‘front line’ interacting with the public and we take this responsibility very seriously indeed.
“The success of CommuniGate is a graphic example of the powerful synergy that can exist between print and web.”
