Matas wins the Gold Award in the competition for the E-Commerce Award 2020
Last night, the Danish Chamber of Commerce Digital Trade hosted an event for the top of the Danish e-commerce industry for the award of this year’s e-commerce prizes, and last night's big winner was Matas which not only carried off the prize as 'Best omnichannel company' but also won the prestigious Gold Award. Hesehus won gold in the category ‘Best e-commerce case’ for its solution to Matas.
Although the industry’s most desirable prizes were awarded virtually, the atmosphere among the participants was elated and the excitement among the hopeful finalists was noticeable all the way through the screen. For Matas and its regular e-commerce supplier, Hesehus, it was a very big triumph with 2 x gold and not least the E-Commerce Award’s finest acknowledgement, the Gold Award.
The Gold Award is awarded to the one of the 11 winners which the juror chairpersons, a number of Denmark’s most competent e-commerce experts, consider to be the most talented Danish online shop, and this year there was no doubt that the award should go to Matas.
Gold for Hesehus
Matas’s regular e-commerce partner, Hesehus, also went straight to the top when they won gold in the category ‘Best e-commerce case’ for their e-commerce solution to Matas. The gold is awarded to the web agency or supplier which via their solution for the e-commerce company has made a difference to the company and strengthened its position, e.g. in the form of increased sales, better service and user experience or a better bottom line. The jury, selected by the Danish Chamber of Commerce Digital Trade, explained the reason behind selecting Hesehus as the winner:
Lars Hedal, CEO at Hesehus
“To us the past 10 years of close cooperation with Matas has been and still is a great pleasure. To be able to work with a true omnichannel retailer such as Matas, which constantly raises the bar, is first mover on many of the e-commerce initiatives we experience in Denmark, and which continuously challenges us, is not just important to us as a company but is certainly also a driving force which encourages and motivates our employees. And with more than 50% online growth 10 quarters running, two gold statuettes and not least the highest acknowledgement in the form of the Gold Award, we have to pinch ourselves now and then”
