London - 5 December 2014

The Sitecore Experience Awards (previously Sitecore Site of the Year) is an annual event which recognises customers who have developed the most outstanding websites using the Sitecore CMS. This year Codehouse, one of the most experienced Sitecore partners worldwide, was once again recognised for its contribution in the continual development of the Monarch Airlines website.

This is the second year in succession Codehouse has been recognised for its Sitecore development on the Monarch Airlines website. These latest awards add to the three won in 2013.

The following Sitecore Experience Awards were won:
• Best use of Web Personalisation
• Best DMS Deployment/Integration

The Monarch Airlines website was recognised for its use of leveraging Sitecore’s Digital Marketing System to personalise its ancillary promotions. The result of which saw an average 19% increase in average passenger spend and a 16% increase in uptake of promoted ancillaries, in particular from champagne which doubled its take up, and on extra leg room seats which experienced a 206% increase.

Luke Donnebaum, Website Manager at Monarch commented: “We’re delighted to have been recognised again for our Sitecore implementation. We set out to ensure we deliver the best online experience for our customers and the work over the last year has built on that solid foundation - the customer remains at the heart of our focus. We know that competition is tough so we need to continue punching above our weight, particularly in digital. The continued recognition of our efforts in this area is a great sign we’re on the right path for success.”

Claus Meldgaard Rasmussen, Managing Director at Codehouse added: “It’s amazing to once again receive THE ‘stamp of approval’ from the Sitecore team themselves! It shows that our continued endeavours to push the Sitecore DMS and web personalisation capabilities further and further are paying off, delivering great experiences and great benefits for a valued customer of ours. We are very excited to be leading the way in utilising the powers of the Sitecore Customer Experience Platform and we are looking forward to doing more great stuff with Sitecore – both together with Monarch and with all our other lovely Sitecore customers. Congratulations to everyone involved in getting us to this point!”
