CDS, Syzygy and Creative Jar Won Partner of the Year Awards

CDS, Syzygy and Creative Jar were crowned the winners of the Episerver Partner of the Year Awards UK and Ireland 2014.

Episerver announced the Partner of the Year Awards at the annual Customer & Partner Day in London last week to recognise the outstanding contribution and world-class digital marketing and ecommerce solutions delivered to Episerver customers. Selection criteria included business value gained to the customer, new business generation, and best practices around helping organisations transform their digital strategies.

“We’re thrilled to announce and recognise our partners who have demonstrated strong commitments to the Episerver platform and innovative use of our software to help our customers become digital leaders,” said Johan Jardevall, Strategic Sales Director at Episerver. “We know that without the support from our partners, we would not be able to achieve such strong growth in the UK and deliver on our mission to provide customers and businesses with best-in-class digital marketing and ecommerce solutions that drive business results.”
