Codehouse, one of the most experienced Sitecore partners worldwide collected four Sitecore Site of the Year awards at the 2013 Sitecore Site of the Year UK event held at the Fabric Bar, London. The annual event, which recognises customers who have developed the most outstanding websites using Sitecore software, accredited Codehouse for its contribution in developing the Monarch Airlines website and the Zuken website. The following categories were won:
Overall Sitecore Site of the Year UK 2013 for Monarch Airlines
Best Travel & Hospitality for Monarch Airlines
Best DMS Deployment/Integration for Monarch Airlines
Best Manufacturing, Automotive & Technology for Zuken
The Monarch website leverages Sitecore’s personalisation features, including a personalised Sitecore hosted homepage, flights page and offers section, with personalisation taking into account flight searches, booking activity, GEO-IP and HTML5 geo-location look-up to pinpoint local airports, and a search referrer and flight search categorisation personalisation features.
Luke Donnebaum, Website Manager at Monarch commented: “We’re delighted to have been recognised with these awards. We wanted to make sure we used Sitecore’s capabilities to their fullest and these awards are testimony to the hard work and effort put in by both ourselves and our development partner, Codehouse, over the past year.”
As well as benefiting from persona based personalisation rules on its home page, Zuken’s Sitecore website uses a custom Tag Analyser for exporting data relating to sales leads which are then automatically distributed amongst resellers and direct sales.
Mark Knight, Senior Digital Marketing Manager at Zuken commented: “We continue to be impressed by the power and flexibility of Sitecore and our design partner Codehouse to deliver against our requirements. They understand our vision to get to the root of what our current and potential customers need when they visit our site.”
