Every year the most important figures in online and digital media gather together for the Eir Spider Awards, ‘The Oscars’ of their industry. Established in 1996, the Eir Spider Awards are now in their 22nd year making them the longest standing and most prestigious internet awards in Ireland.
With categories rewarding excellence in every conceivable field, entrants are judged by an independent panel of industry experts. According to the judges of this year’s Eir Spider Awards: “The winners are the brightest talents, the most innovative creators and the most dynamic companies.”
Shoplink from BWG brings together BWG’s category management services and the promotional offers available to retailers, making it easier than ever to have the right range available at all times for their shoppers. The system not only connects to EPOS, but is fully integrated and live with the supply chain.
According to Chris Donnelly, IT Director, BWG Foods who has been the mastermind of this project, “A lot of hard work has gone into making Shoplink the best B2B solution for our retailers. Retailers can use Shoplink to place orders 24-7, review the full BWG product range, choose from promotions and avail of deals. In addition, Shoplink is fully integrated with the EPOS system in store and the BWG warehouses allowing stores visibility of their own sales and purchase history when making purchasing decisions in Shoplink. It is great to be recognised nationally for our work.”
This year’s awards took place at The Round Room at the Mansion House in Dublin. The Eir Spider Awards are considered an important benchmark for distinction and excellence in web-based business strategies. Previous winners have been on the cutting edge of their chosen fields and have since gone onto great success in their respective industries.
