The Best Use of Digital category is sponsored by Midland Conference Services.
The fact that so many family businesses have embraced the world of digital is no surprise, so to showcase the fantastic examples we know are out there we've created the Best Use of Digital award for 2016.
Digital has been embraced across many sectors from manufacturing to hospitality, using a wide range of technologies from CAD and 3D printing to websites, apps and social media. So, if you're a traditional department store that's had great success with online retail, a haulage firm that's embraced digital logistics and fleet management or a pie maker with a great online presence and social media following, we want to showcase your success!
The judges will be looking to see:
- Details of the digital initiative/s and the business objectives behind them
- Research, planning and strategy utilised
- Evidence of impact on the family business - increase in enquiries, bookings, sales, increase in web traffic etc
- Cost of implementation - on the basis of quality, cost and value for money to the family business
- Plans for the future use of digital
