Satzmedia wins Hippo Partner Project of the Year Award
This year’s event took place in Amsterdam on the 6th of March. The winning project was selected by the attendees, after all four nominated partners – Finalist, HintTech, Netpioneer and Satzmedia - presented their case on stage. Satzmedia’s project at one of the leading global suppliers of products for fastening, fixing, identifying and protecting cables and their connecting components, features Hippo CMS as engine for website, intranet and mobile apps content and internal collaboration. The versatile application of Hippo CMS, combined with the project’s impressive scale of the initial roll–out to 16 countries and high customer satisfaction won Satzmedia most votes.
The Hippo Partner Event was established in 2013 to share knowledge and experience among the growing Hippo partner network. Representatives of both Certified Partners, such as Capgemini, ISDC, DigitalLBi and theFactor.e as well as Technical Alliances partners, such as Nuxeo, Couchbase and Elastic Path were present at the event. Next to a presentation by associate Professor e-Business Tibert Verhagen on ‘Influencing Online Buying Behaviour’, partners also received updates on market, company and product developments from several Hippo spokespeople. The Partner Event was concluded by the Partner Project of the Year Award ceremony, in which the first Hippo Partner Project of the Year award was presented to Satzmedia.
‘We are very proud of winning this award,’ says Markus Meyer-Westphal, Managing Director of Satzmedia. ‘But we couldn’t have done it without our customer. They gave us a huge challenge but also the confidence to make it work for them. A project going viral is the best sign of a successful implementation, and our goal has definitely been achieved. Following the initial roll-out to sixteen countries, four more country locations switched and regularly additional fellow subsidiaries of our customer request to be switched to Hippo CMS. So without hesitation we dedicate this award to our happy customer.’
‘With the Partner Project of the Year Award we aim to celebrate the wonderful work that is being done by our partners,’ says Jeroen Verberg, CEO and Co-founder of Hippo. ‘Satzmedia’s project absolutely fits that description. Learning from the experience of our partners is incredibly important for us, and for the strength of our partner network. This year’s Partner Event has taught us a great deal again. Hugely impressed, not only by the winning project, but by all nominated projects in both variety and achievements, I’m already looking forward to next year’s competition.’
