Last night brought another award victory for Ridgeway; this time a prestigious Ecommerce Award at a glamorous ceremony held in London’s Grosvenor Square.

We won the ‘Best Electronics, Computing, DVD, Film, Games, Music & Toys eCommerce’ award for our work on the ecommerce platform we delivered for HMV.

Now in their eighth year, the awards shine light on the UK’s best agencies and companies in the ecommerce space.

Built on Kentico, the HMV site needed to be robust enough to handle the home of entertainment’s thousands of products and support its strong customer base. Load time has been optimised to ensure a smooth transactional process for customers, and user experience has been considered at every opportunity to ensure visitors can easily find the products and deals they’re after. For the HMV team, stock is automatically categorised and added to the store, and amending stock and promotions is simple and straightforward.

Other winners at the awards last night include Amazon, Tesco, and Argos. 

Our award victory is testament to the hard work and skills of our team, working in partnership with HMV to provide the vehicle for which their team can go on to make the site the success it is today. 

Simon Lassam, Managing Director at Ridgeway says: “It’s a welcome addition to our growing collection of RAR, Wirehive, and Kentico awards, and we look forward to winning plenty more in the future!”
