Celebrating client success at the Digital Leaders Awards

The winners of this year’s Computing Digital Technology Leaders Awards were announced at a packed ceremony late last week – and it was great to see our clients getting their moment in the spotlight.

Here’s a quick rundown of the night’s successes:

Co-Op Funeralcare

Winner, Best Large Enterprise Digital Project

Digital Leaders Awards - Co-op team

We mentioned last year that, as part of our expansion in the north of England, we’ve been working closely with Co-op Funeralcare. We were thrilled to see the work we’ve done together winning in its category.

We hope to share more news of this work soon, as it’s a truly transformational programme of work that is the first of its kind within this space. Organising funerals is a complex and sensitive task; we are working with Co-op Digital to create a custom digital service to lighten the load for the Co-op’s people to do their jobs, freeing them to spend more time with their customers at such a difficult time in their lives.

Leanne Gethin, Telefónica UK

Winner, Product Manager of the Year

Another winner was Leanne Gethin, a familiar face to many of our consultants. We’ve been working with O2 for several years now and it was a genuine delight to see Leanne picking up her award – which is well deserved. Many congratulations to Leanne.

Leanne is a hands-on Product Manager, and works tirelessly on making My O2 a great experience for customers. Her involvement in every stage of delivery – from initial ideas through to go-live – has seen My O2 grow to 5 million active users a month, as well as become the primary payments channel for O2.

Home Office (Single Intelligence Platform)

 Finalist, Best Public Sector Digital Project

Digital Leaders Awards - Home Office team

Finally, congratulations go to the team at the Home Office, whose hard work on the Single Intelligence Platform project saw them shortlisted as a finalist in the Best Public Sector Digital Project category – a fine achievement for work that is making a big impact (and saving the UK Taxpayer millions).

As ever, hearty congratulations to all our clients and consultants involved.
