We inhabit the digital age where more and more interaction between people and businesses is taking place on-line. It is crucially important to embrace and implement the latest digital technology. We see there are some businesses acing their social media and incorporating digital into every aspect of the businesses. If you are one of these shops then make sure you nominate yourselves and join the honour roll of digital dynamos.
Sponsor AkzoNobel's Emily Cook said, "Typically, when hearing 'digital' we think of a functional website and engaging on Facebook or Instagram, but the 'digital' culture runs deeper within the business, and advanced businesses challenge themselves on many other levels. You'll need a minimum of a website and Facebook page and then the judges will be looking for other ways of engaging digitally from training to quoting to workshop management systems."
