We Won E-commerce Award!

Few months ago, we found out great news. Our project was nominated for a prestigious

eCommerce Awards for Excellence which is hosted by UKFast in the category Best eCommerce New Design or Re-Design. And even bigger surprise was

when we got an invitation to the gala evening, where the winner should be announced.


What we do in MCD team?

In Multichannel delivery team we are working on improvements for better user experience

on listing page and on product page for Currys and PCWorld sites. The biggest improvement

in the previous year was multichannel delivery module with postcode checker on product page.

This module allows user to check, if the product is available in shops around selected area or

if and when we are able to deliver this product to the customer´s home.

Customer only needs to place a postcode or use a geolocation and he/she can immediately see his/her delivery or collect options directly on product page after just one click.


Suit up!

When we start studying the invitation we discovered that amongst nominees were also

global companies like Amazon, Apple, Marks and Spencer, Netflix, Tesco and others. We

started to feel that this won´t be any small event. And we were pretty sure about it once we read the dress code requirements. On the invitation was “Black tie / cocktail”. Hand on heart how many times you've been invited to the event which requires a black tie? Shopping spree was ahead of us.


Over 400 people from more than 40 companies

Our enthusiasms lasted till the fateful evening. Heels on for ladies, bowties up for

gentlemen and let´s board the taxis. This event was held in London's impressive Mariott

Hotel on Grosvenor Square with precise schedule - Welcome drink, opening speech, dinner,

awards and a final party. We met quite a few colleagues from the eCommerce field amongst

the smart looking gentlemen and dazzling ladies and also we had the chance to hang out

with our top managers.


Dinner like in the cooking show

After the opening drinks we moved to the lavishly decorated ballroom where we were

welcomed by the speech delivered from the marketing director at UBM Anna Knight . We

were a little confused with the amount of cutlery and white napkin, but we did it with grace.

Army of waiters took very good care of us and we enjoyed elegant dinner. After the desert

and a coffee, British comedians Ed Gamble and Rob Beckett set the mood in the ballroom

and evening continued in this cheerful atmosphere during the award giving.


And the winner is...

As there was more than 20 categories we eagerly waited for a while before our category got

announced. When the moment came we were actually surprised to hear our company´s

name. It lifts our spirits, that our hard work is seen in the eCommerce field and that we

got appreciated even from the outside of the company. It is a big recognition of the

tremendous amount of work we had done and of the time and nerves we invested. After that,

obviously, we celebrated.

In conclusion, we would like to thank all of our colleagues who were involved in MCD project

and couldn't enjoy this lovely evening with us. Without all of you and our great team spirit, we

would not be able to reach this kind of appreciation. And of course the price is not only for


our team but for the whole company. Thanks :)
