Celebrus Technologies, the online customer insight provider, has won the Teradata EPIC Award for ‘Independent Software Vendor (ISV) – Best Business Solution Partner’ at the 2011 Teradata Epic Awards in San Diego. Now in its fourth year, the awards acknowledged Teradata’s global customers and partners in their activities in leveraging data to drive peak performance throughout their organisations, creating business results.

The ISV Best Business Solution Award recognises a partner who has developed and implemented a repeatable solution that uses Teradata technology to deliver unique and measurable business value to customers.

Celebrus Technologies won the award for its work with Shop Direct, the UK’s #1 non-store retailer and owner of brands including Woolworths, Littlewoods, Choice and Empire. The solution delivered a step change in their customer communication via the intelligent distribution and use of behavioural and experiential data, which is delivered through the Teradata IWI initiative, in cooperation with Celebrus Technologies. 

Darryl McDonald, Teradata Executive Vice President, comments, “The Teradata EPIC Awards celebrate the pioneering passion of Teradata customers and partners who mastered data to make a significant contribution to their organisations business goals. Their work to empower the business user with intelligence is at the epicentre of the coming fundamental change in business analytics. They have put all of their data to work, creating real business value for their companies.”

Katharine Hulls, VP of Marketing for Celebrus Technologies, continues, “We are delighted to win Best Business Solution at the Teradata EPIC Awards. Partnering with Teradata has enabled us to deliver market-leading and high business value solutions that have a measurable impact on our clients’ bottom line, and we are very proud of such recognition of our work by our peers.” 

As well as being recognised at the Teradata EPIC Awards, Celebrus was also recently highly commended at the eCommerce Awards for Excellence in London for Best eCommerce Marketing Initiative, again for work undertaken with Shop Direct.

Hulls concludes, “It is undoubtedly becoming more widely recognised that through the use of more detailed data, businesses are able to harness marketing initiatives that will bring measurable benefits throughout their organisations. We at Celebrus are delighted to be recognised for our contribution to the industry – indeed winning the Teradata award in San Diego and being highly commended at the eCommerce Awards in London shows that the effective and broad use of data is growing to become a worldwide necessity. Businesses are demonstrating that collecting a 360 degree view of their individual customers can lead to effective targeting, which in turn drives sales measurably and significantly forwards.”
