Best Digital Supplier at The Herald Digital Business Awards, Again. Posted by: Kenny S on 28/09/2011
We've picked up the top prize 'Digital Supplier of the Year' at the Herald Digital Business Awards 2011 for the second year running.
This was a tough award to win, presented to the business that has done the most to advance digital innovation in Scotland during the past 12 months. It's an outstanding achievement, so we're all over the moon.
The Awards, judged by a panel of experts in innovation, design, marketing and technology, are a national showcase for the best in digital business. In order to be successful, all participating companies needed to be able to demonstrate clear business results - the top prize for Best Digital Supplier Award was the most challenging of all.
We were delighted to be picking up the top prize for the second year running.
In the words of Kenny Shaw:
"Businesses needed to demonstrate excellence on every level, including the diversity of its work, how well it fulfilled client briefs, creative execution, technological innovation and commercial success.
I'm proud to say that Screenmedia has consistently delivered for its clients, stayed ahead of market trends, continued to innovate within the digital space and as a result, the business has grown substantially in the last 12 months."
It's true, it has been an amazing year for Screenmedia. We've extended our lead in the development of mobile web and app solutions. In February this year we sold our Sprint GPS app business to US fitness company Peaksware. We won several new awards too, including two in just two weeks. We've also rebranded the business and diversified our client base with new national and international clients including Honeywell, JP Morgan, Tate Modern, Glasgow School of Art, BMT Group, Peaksware and iBAHN.
So, with all this hard work under our belt, it was lovely to sit back, relax and soak up the celebratory atmosphere. The awards ceremony itself took place at Oran Mor in Glasgow's west end and was hosted by Catriona Shearer from BBC Scotland. We had a great (albeit rather late) night, together with an audience of professionals from some of Scotland's most dynamic companies.
It was nice to see everyone looking so darn good and so relaxed!
So, what now?
Well, an award is only recognition for past achievements and we're always looking ahead. During the next 12 months, we're continuing to invest for growth, ensuring that we remain at the forefront of digital innovation. We've not only restructured the business to facilitate this but we're also moving to new offices before the year is out.
Well done to team Screenmedia for all the hard work. A big thank you to all our clients for supporting us, and of course thank you to the Herald team and its judges for picking us as Digital Supplier of the Year, again.
