The Digital Initiative of the Year category, sponsored by Hoshizaki, honoured a distributor, either traditional or online, who has really embraced the digital medium – whether it is for sales, service, technology, showcasing their capabilities or an innovative social media campaign.
This was the closest contest in this year’s awards, with the winner only decided on the last day of voting. But with 23% of the vote, HK Projects triumphed.
The Sheffield-based dealer prides itself on offering a service ‘like no other’, with its bespoke, unique 3D foodservice design offering. This is a key part of its provision, through to complete installation and after-sales customer care.
The distributor also utilises more cutting edge technology in the form of a bespoke asset management service for all commercial kitchen installations, providing existing and new clients with full traceability on all equipment assets. Asset data is transferred to the in-house post project support team and input onto HK’s bespoke CRM and asset management database.
HK Projects’ sales director Nathan Bland collected the trophy, saying: “It’s absolutely outstanding to win, I can’t wait to tell my colleagues. It’s been a big team effort this year at HK Projects.”
