Posted by Catrin Beu on Fri, Dec 08, 2017 @ 07:34 AM

Die von Ihnen entwickelte App ist ein Muss und hat eine herausragende Qualität? Dann sollten Sie auch die Anerkennung bekommen, die Ihnen zusteht: zum Beispiel einen der begehrtesten Wirtschaftspreise Deutschlands, den German Stevie Awards.

Inventorum gewinnt Gold bei den German Stevie Awards 2017

Geben Sie den Award Kategorien für App-Entwicklungen Ihr Gesicht. Bewerben Sie sich um die begehrte Stevie-Auszeichnung.

Die Bewerbungsphase läuft bereits auf Hochtouren. Aber gut sechseinhalb Wochen haben Sie noch Zeit. Denn am 24. Januar 2018 ist der finale Einsendeschluss. Bis dahin können Sie ohne Teilnahmegebühren beliebig viele Bewerbungen einreichen. 

Denn in diesem Jahr berechnen die German Stevie Awards für die Einreichung von Nominierungen keine Teilnahmegebühren mehr, sondern Preisträgergebühren. Der Vorteil für Sie: Sie können kostenfrei unbegrenzt viele Nominierungen in den verschiedenen Kategorien einreichen und zahlen die Gebühr erst, wenn Sie einen Gold, Silber und Bronze Stevie Award gewonnen haben. Eine Übersicht über die inkludierten Leistungen der Priesträgergebühr finden Sie hier

Die Preisverleihung findet übrigens am 27. April 2018 in Berlin im edlen Hotel Adlon statt.

Wenn Sie und/oder Ihr Team Herausragendes in der App-Entwicklung geleistet haben, bewerben Sie sich um den German Stevie Award.

Wählen Sie aus 19 Kategorien aus, etwa Entertainment, Events, Marketing oder auch Shopping/Einkaufen. Zugegeben, das könnte für Sie zur Qual der Wahl werden. Aber wenn Sie sich nicht für eine Kategorie entscheiden können, bewerben Sie sich doch einfach in mehreren … Die vollständige Liste der German Stevie Awards für App-Entwicklungen finden Sie hier.

Warum Sie sich jetzt bewerben sollten? Nun, viele unserer Gewinner berichten, dass ein German Stevie-Award sich sowohl im eigenen Unternehmen als auch nach außen positiv auswirkt, nicht zuletzt durch eine höhere Arbeitgeber- und Markenattraktivität

Diese Chance hat sich die Inventorum GmbH aus Berlin nicht entgehen lassen. Das Unternehmen bietet Lösungen zur Kassenabwicklung und Warenbestandsverwaltung von Einzelhändlern an. Die lokale Produktsuche von kann zum Beispiel als App auf dem Smartphone genutzt werden. Nutzer können darüber nach einem Produkt und dessen Verfügbarkeit in der unmittelbaren Umgebung suchen. Die Ergebnisse erscheinen mit dem Produktnamen, einer kurzen Beschreibung, dem Preis und der Entfernung zum Geschäft. Außerdem zeigt eine farbige Markierung die aktuelle Produktverfügbarkeit an. Da diese Funktion als Backend-Lösung zur Verfügung stellt, lässt sie sich problemlos in Apps, Onlineshops und auf Webseiten einbinden. Dafür gab’s von der Jury 2017 einen Gold Stevie.

客户之间缔结关系
 

邓世民说:“亚洲太平洋整个地区,特别是在中国市场,社区化媒体与移动接触非常重要。品牌不能推迟移动战略,需要在事业开始时共同进行构想。不管是在专用应用程序投资,还是在微信LINE或者微博等社区化媒体移动生成图标,移动装备品牌特化交流经验,需要对应至今不断活动、且变化的网络生活方式要求。”

邓世民还说:“现今,很多客户通过品牌、微信、whats应用程序等,期待进行1对1对话。作为品牌,与客户进行私人对话,对于他们来说,将成为更好的学习机会。”

北京闲逛

作为不断进行活动、且变化的网络生活方式人,邓世民说:“在北京打车很难。所以我喜欢使用微信综合支付系统和嘀嘀打车。”如果要在北京创业,这是一个很好的信息。

 

历史性变化

我们向邓世民提问,他对未来的构想。他说亚洲-太平洋地区具有无限的可能性。邓世民说:“人们认为中国没有革新”。“然而,犹如很多史帝维奖获奖人体现的一样,那是完全错误的。我们在历史性变化的时代生活。我们已经目睹了在亚洲太平洋地区主导巨大变化的场景。以后将有更多事例。”

スティービーアワーズ受賞者から聞くアジア太平洋地域での成功ノウハウ

Posted by Clara Im on Fri, May 02, 2014 @ 04:19 AM

describe the image

ウィーバー・シェンドウィックアジア太平洋は2013年国際ビジネス大賞で二つのスティービー金賞を受賞しています。北京事務所が中国マクドナルドのためのアプリ製作でアプリアワーズを、シンガポール事務所がコミュニティー関係キャンペーンでPRアワーズを獲得しました。(2014年国際ビジネス大賞参加者受付中です。エントリーキットをどうぞ。)

ウィーバー・シェンドウィック北京のインライン戦略副会長であるサイモン=タンさんは、アジア太平洋地域での商品・サービス広報のために必要な戦略を語ってくれました。


顧客との関係を築く 

タンさんはこう切り出しました。「アジア太平洋全域、特に中国マーケットで、ソーシャルメディアとモバイルアクセスはとても重要なキーポイントです。会社としては、モバイル戦略を後回しにするより、事業の最初段階で一緒に構想しておくべきだと思います。専用アプリを開発するなり、WeChatLineWeiboなどのソーシャルメディアモバイルコンテンツを製作するなりです。モバイルデバイスでのブランド特化コミュニケーション経験によって、常に変化を遂げている「オンラインライフ」世代の要求を満たさねばなりません。

タンさんはこう続けました。「最近は沢山の顧客が、WeChatやWhatsAppなどを通して会社と1:1コミュニケーションしたいと考えます。会社側としても、顧客と他愛無い会話を重ねることで、彼らについてもっと学べる機会になるはずです」

 

顧客献身

ウィーバーシェンドウィックのアプリ分野スティービー賞受賞エントリー作である、「オリンピックアプリ・青春とともに金メダルを目指す」は、代行社がソーシャルメディアを用いてクライアントであるマクドナルドの青年市場アクセスを手助けした、完璧な事例と言えます。

タンさんは、スティービーアワーズは業界の主要なアワーズであると考えます。「受賞事実はとても誇らしく、嬉しく感じています。我々の顧客献身、チームの技術、そして成し遂げた成果を証明してくれたのですから」

ウィーバーシェンドウィックチームは、マクドナルドのアプリ製作がとても楽しかったと話しています。「このアプリは中国のオリンピックファンたちと良き関係を築き、彼らの情熱を身近に感じ取れるきっかけになりました。スティービーアワーズ受賞は、我々が今後のキャンペーンのためにどのようなモバイルアプリを作るべきなのか、またどうやって顧客を引き寄せ、違いを生み出す新しいアプリを作るべきかに対する限界を通り越すために、力強い応援になりました」

 

北京散策

絶え間なく変化を遂げ続ける「オンラインライフ」人口の一人として、タンさんは語りました。「北京ではタクシーを捕まえるのにいつも一苦労します。なので私は、WeChatの総合支払システムとともに、Dididache(嘀嘀打车)を好んで使います。」北京でのビジネスをお考え中なら、この情報は重宝するかもです。

 

歴史的な変化

タンさんの未来様相図もお聞きすることが出来ました。彼はアジア太平洋地域に無限の可能性があると言います。「或る人は、中国には革新がないと言いますが」とタンさんは切り出しました。「それは大間違いです。現に中国には沢山のスティービーアワーズ受賞者がいる。我々はもうすでに、アジア太平洋地域が様々な変化のリーダーとして活躍する場面を目撃しました。そしてこれからはもっと多くなります。」

 

サイモン=タンは誰?
サイモン=タンさんはウィーバー・シェンドウィック北京のインライン戦略副会長である。彼はデジタルから伝統的方式の広報チームに至るまで、オン・オフライン両方で顧客と広告ターゲットを魅入らせる統合マーケティングとメディア戦略を監督する戦略的方向を提示する。彼のデジタル分野での10年間の経験は、高速移動消費財・金融・小売・旅行・テクノロジーバーティカル分野を含み、有料サーチ・ソーシャルメディア・展示メディア購入・表面広告そしてクリエイティブコンテンツ生産まで網羅する。タンさんとは現在クライアントとしてマクドナルド、ユニレバー、マイクロソフト、カリフォルニアウォルナッツ、オーシャンスプレイなどがビジネスをしている。

ウィーバー・シェンドウィックより前、タンさんはMindshare NYでSAPのためのグローバルアカウントと、全てのユニレバーブランドの北米地域を監督するグローバルリサーチディレクターであった。ユニレバーのため、彼のチームはソーシャルメディア、コミュニティ運営、影響力のある顧客との関係作り、2010年最高のファンページを率いたフェイスブックをはじめとするユニレバー統合マーケティングプログラムを作って、実行した。タンさんはまた、ユニレバーの北米デジタル革新理事会でサーチングとデジタルメディア戦略のための全てのブランドの諮問委員として招待された。

サイモンはビーポンの年間アジアソーシャルメディア会議 (BeaPon’s Annual Asia Social Media  Summit)、2012年北京政府情勢フォーラム(the Beijing Government Affairs Forum 2012)、SES中国、SESロンドン、OMSニューヨークを含む様々な国際コンファレンスで発表しており、ニューヨークジークリン経営学部の招待講師も勤めた。タンさんはテッドエックス北京のボランティアであり、コロンビア大学でMBAをとっている。

 

ウィーバー・シェンドウィックって何?
ウィーバー・シェンドウィック は81カ国家にオフィスを構えたリーディンググローバル広告会社である。会社の企画・戦略・分析・製作・デザイナー・開発・広報チームなど様々なチームが彼らの革新的かつクリエイティブなアプローチと、影響力のある業務成果を評価され、世界で最も栄誉あるアワーズを受賞したと言える。会社はコンシューマーマーケティング、企業評判、健康管理、技術、公共政策、金融サービス、企業の社会的責任、財政コミュニケーション、リスクマネジメントなどの全フィールドで分野を跨ぐ自社開発ソーシャルデジタル分析法を効果的に活用している。ウィーバーシェンドウィックはインターパブリックグループ(NYSE:IPG)の子会社である。公式サイトはこちら。 http://www.webershandwick.com .
