Last Wednesday, 30th November, we attended The eir Spiders – Digital Technology Awards, in Dublin. The eir Spiders are Ireland’s premier digital technology awards, and have the idea of rewarding Irish and Northern Irish businesses and organisations for their creativity and innovation, and provide an important opportunity to recognise and showcase online excellence.
These awards are considered an important benchmark for distinction and excellence in web-based business strategies, and entrants are judged by an independent panel of industry experts with winners being the brightest talents and the most innovative creators.
When we learnt that we had been shortlisted three times within the ‘Best Use of Data and Web Analytics’ category for our work with VHI, Barnardo’s for Ireland and Griffith College, we were absolutely ecstatic. To be shortlisted is an accomplishment in itself especially amongst some big, big names in such a competitive industry.
We attended the event at the Double Tree, with hope that it would be third time lucky for GlowMetrics! This year the awards were hosted by Panti Bliss with hundreds of people from all over the country attending. We were looking forward to attending and celebrating the digital industry.
Competition was extremely strong, so when GlowMetrics was called out as the category winner for our work with Barnardo’s for Ireland we were delighted! We’re still looking at the spider in awe!
After being shortlisted the previous two years, winning this year was an extremely proud moment for us. As a small company, it’s amazing to see how far we’ve come and a great feeling to achieve this success.
We want to say a huge thank you to everyone around us who has supported us, and an even bigger thank you to our clients who put their trust in us and make this all possible! This award sets the bar high for us, and we hope to continue to deliver award-winning services. Onwards and upwards for team GlowMetrics!
