We’re excited to announce that Datisan (now XPON) has been named Google’s Emerging Star as well as the Maturity Megastar Partner of 2020 at this year’s Google Marketing Platform Partner Awards for Australia and New Zealand.
In a virtual event for 2020, the Datisan (now XPON) team gathered and celebrated together while engaging with Google Partner Managers and other Partners, while enjoying some excellent catering from Google to replicate the experience in other years.
The Emerging Star award is new to the awards for 2020 and one that was awarded at the discretion of the GMP judges.
Emerging Star highlights Datisan’s (now XPON) ability to connect marketing and IT stakeholders on projects we work on. It also touched on our ability to facilitate connection and foster conversations and relationships across Google and particularly called out the strong growth in clients, projects and individual and team certifications we have experienced in the past 12 months.
Maturity Megastar is awarded to the Partner who submitted the best customer user case that highlights progression up the digital marketing maturity scale with positive client results.
GMP judges noted that as well as providing an excellent use case, Datisan’s (now XPON) winning submission highlighted the work and efforts that had gone into Digital Maturity as a business and how it underpins every Datisan engagement.
It highlighted our proactive work leveraging past maturity studies to build our own Annual Digital Marketing Growth Report. It also mentioned the expertise we were building as a result of the industry benchmarking we’ve been able to present to the market off the back of three years worth of data from the region.
Head of Business Development, Mike Cornwell says of the work that Datisan has done in digital marketing maturity:
Maturity plays a key role in all of Datisan’s engagements with our clients. We want to help clients to understand what it means to move up the maturity scale, and help them do so.
Datisan’s (now XPON) maturity assessments and roadmaps are the starting point for all business engagements as they provide the strongest indication of where an organisation is starting their digital journey and also highlights where they need to develop in order to best support their key objectives.
We wouldn’t have been able to be awarded these honours without the support of our Google Marketing Platform Partner Managers, as well as our exceptional clients whose projects allow us to provide work like what has been recognised here.
More to come as well as team pictures once the awards are delivered.
