Now in its seventh year, the eCommerce Awards for Excellence is the most prestigious evening in the ecommerce calendar. Last night, the awards celebrated the very best the industry had to offer from ground-breaking innovations and campaigns to customer service excellence and revenue growth.
This year’s awards saw an unprecedented number of high quality submissions which made the judge’s job far from easy. The judging panel consisted of Google’s Director of Retail, Martijn Bertisen, eDigitalResearch’s Head of Business Development, Neil Callaghan, and Business Matters Online Editor, Rebecca Jones.
In a press release which was released this morning, the eCommerce Awards for Excellence commented:
“The evening was a resounding success, especially for Periscopix, a Merkle Company, who walked away from the evening with no less than three awards for Best Children's Clothing, Equipment & Toys eCommerce with Toys 'R' Us, Best Electronics, Computing, DVD, Film, Games & Music eCommerce with Sony and Best Agency. A wonderful example of how agencies and brands are working together to drive excellence.”
Best Children's Clothing, Equipment & Toys eCommerce
This is the second year we’ve scooped up this award for our work with Toys ‘R’ Us. Our Toys ‘R’ Us campaign has picked up several other accolades this year including Best Retail & eCommerce Campaign at the Drum Search Awards and the Grand Prix award at the Online Retail Awards.
Best Electronics, Computing, DVD, Film, Games & Music eCommerce
Our Programmatic campaign for Sony in Russia broke new ground. This is the first programmatic campaign we’ve run in Russia which is a notoriously diffuicult territory to target. We not only achieved the objectives set by Sony, we smashed them achieving an ROI 433% above target.
Quote from Marc Warren, Vice President at Periscopix, a Merkle Company:
"We are thrilled to have won three eCommerce Awards for Excellence. Our awards tally now sits at 36 – and we have won Best Agency at four different awards events in 2015 - something which all of the team should be extremely proud of! This is our fifth award for our work with Toys R Us and our first with Sony – we are hoping for even more to come!”
We would like to thank the eCommerce Awards for Excellence team for putting on an amazing evening - our team thoroughly enjoyed themselves!
