The Drum Awards for the Digital Industries

This follows last month’s announcement that the same project has been nominated for best B2B website at The Drum Awards for the Digital Industries – winners of which will be announced at a big ceremony in London on the 10th October. Might we be double-award winning??

The Tropical Shutters Project

Our client Tropical Blinds had a vision to create a comprehensive online ordering software for their trade customers to help facilitate their entry into the Shutters market. We took on this vision and built them a bespoke digital platform that went above and beyond the brief engaging all stakeholders throughout their supply chain from all around the world – not just for customers to place orders through. Complete with interactive 3D visualisations, an exquisite user experience and global stakeholder engagement, we revolutionised a key part of their sales and administrative processes and in turn an industry; saving our client limitless time and securing well above-target revenues.

We wanted the user experience to emulate what digital customers have become accustomed to from brands like Amazon and John Lewis and so we brought their products to life with moveable 3D samples for every possible customisation and autonomous communication pieces to keep stakeholders informed 24/7. We found answers to every obstacle – from establishing clear sizing capabilities and limitations to exploring life-like textures to each product material. Their stakeholders called the new platform ‘a thing of beauty’ and found that the sales speak for themselves – putting the business well on track to reach their ambitious targets for growth in the year ahead. Their new platform offers a truly unique service in their market from every angle you can think of.

Ian Austin, Digital Director and Deputy MD at HGA commented:

“Not one but two prestigious award nominations for our HGA digital solutions! I am absolutely delighted by this industry recognition and looking forward to meeting our competition at both ceremonies. We are so proud of the digital work we can produce here at HGA and Tropical Blinds was a real passion project for what we can do given the creative opportunity.”
