Now in its 10th year, the Auto Trader Click Awards celebrate the UK’s leading digital automotive retailers; those innovative brands that are pushing the standard in digital excellence. Auto Trader is the UK and Ireland’s largest digital automotive marketplace, attracting circa 60 million cross platform visits each month.
H.R. Owen won the evening’s top award for consistently going the extra mile. By placing greater emphasis on the role of digital in the customer journey, the retailer has created a truly customer centric business, driven by passionate individuals committed to providing the best online and offline experience possible.
Taking place at the iconic Banking Hall, City of London, on 29th June, a total of 13 trophies were awarded representing the very best from the independent, franchise and supermarket retail sectors. The award winning BBC Breakfast presenter and reporter, Steph McGovern, also joined guests to help celebrate and present trophies to each of the deserving winners.
The winners from this year’s awards were determined by a combination of consumer research, analysis of millions of data points, and an independent judging panel made up of some of the UK’s leading digital experts from Google, Vodafone, LinkedIn, ZPG and Havas Media Group.
Auto Trader Sales Director, Le Etta Pearce, said, “The Auto Trader Click Award winners should feel immensely proud. Not only has this tenth year seen a record number of entries, but the bar has once again been raised on quality.
“Today’s car buyers are savvier than ever before, and they’re looking for exceptional customer experiences online that match the in-store experience. By adopting best digital practice, and representing the very best of the automotive retail sector, this year’s winners aren’t simply meeting their customers’ expectations, they’re exceeding them.”
