Robinsons Brewery have been awarded two prizes at the Sitecore Experience Awards for their website created with Mando Group.
Robinsons won ‘Best Use of Commerce’ and were also awarded the most coveted prize of ‘Website of the Year’ for www.robinsonsbrewery.com.
The awards were judged by Forrester Research and presented by Sitecore UK MD Simon Etherington at the Sitecore Digital Summit in London.
In its first three months, the website increased sales by almost 130 per cent compared to the same period last year, with Black Friday sales up a massive 690 per cent compared to the same 24 hours the previous year.
Now six months on, traffic is up 120 per cent on the same period last year and visitors are also staying on the website for 13 seconds longer on average.
Daniella Martin, communications manager at Robinsons Brewery, said: “We’re all incredibly proud to see Robinsons recognised amongst so many global heavyweight companies.
“Our business, first and foremost, is brewing beer, running pubs and serving up great customer experiences.
“It’s our passion and we’ve been doing it for almost 180 years. So to receive not one, but two awards for our new digital platform is testament to our continued ability to adapt.
“Mando have been a joy to work with and they really understood our values, and our story, from the start.
“We now have a website that’s fit for the future and one that we feel is a leading example in our industry.
“We look forward to a bright future working with Mando to deliver some exciting and innovative results.”
