Six award wins for CDS in 2017

Who’s the DADI with the best idea of 2017?

The shelves in our office are groaning under the weight of a slew of shiny new awards; DADI, Prolific North, Digital Impact, Episerver…but surely the most resounding award is Best Idea of 2017 from IdeaUK.

Winning Best Large Digital Agency 2017 at the Prolific North Awards was the best possible way for us to start our awards season, which has this year again, brought us a bumper crop of wins. In fact, we won or were finalists in just about every competition we entered this year. We must be doing something right!

We’d like to thank our team, customers, partners and suppliers for the recommendations, testimonials and stories that made achieving the results below possible.

The Prolific North 2017 Digital Agency of the Year award was slightly different to the other awards as it was not based on a specific client project. The judges were impressed by the way CDS demonstrated an “exemplary year of profitable and substantial growth”, the result of investment in our infrastructure and personnel, supported by a wide range of case studies that demonstrate innovation and the value we deliver to our clients and citizens in the UK.

What does it take to win awards?

Paul Meersman, CDS Head of Marketing said, “Winning awards requires a perfect balance of innovative projects, clients willing to challenge the status quo, supportive software partners and an agency team with the work ethic, culture and technical ability to deliver the client’s vision.

“Judges want to see entries that tackle business problems in new and innovative ways. If you’re not pushing the boundaries you don’t stand a chance. The competition is fierce. Judges look for evidence of success and genuine positive business outcomes.”
