eMarketingEye (www.emarketingeye.com), the award-winning Digital Marketing Agency and a pioneer in the Asian region specializing in the Hospitality industry, is celebrating 14 years of excellence as Sri Lanka’s leading digital marketing agency.
eMarketingEye was able to record the most successful financial year to date on the year ending 31st March 2020. This gave the company renewed confidence to successfully navigate the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic
During the past 12 months, the eMarketingEye team spent countless hours streamlining internal processes and laying the foundation for the future under the “new normal” so that it’s fully-prepared to provide a rapid response to any new requirements by its large client base. This resulted in the company launching several new products to further diversify its portfolio. These include VouchersEye, Sri Lanka’s first-ever Online Hotel Voucher System and an easy, customized voucher system for hotels to sell a range of vouchers, packages and experiences online as well as GiftsEye, an eGift Certificate System that enables customers to easily purchase an eGift certificate of the hotels for offerings such as a room, dining and spa to gift their loved ones instantly. Both solutions have been successfully implemented for around 50 hotels locally and internationally. Additionally, RestaurantsEye, an Online Ordering System for restaurants to enter the online space by deploying a fully-fledged e-commerce store, is widely used by top hotels as their online ordering platform for restaurants.
With the latest developments, the company launched a recruitment drive expanding its digital, social media and technology teams and is now in the final phase of finalizing the new additions to its dynamic team of digital marketers and technology experts. Another notable achievement was getting the eMarketingEye Digital team certified with the Green, Blue and Black Belt Certifications by Google Digital Guru programme for 2020. The certification was awarded for each individual after multiple rounds of workshops and training sessions followed by several online examinations conducted by Google.
eMarketingEye capped off a successful year by adding to its growing collection of awards by winning multiple awards recently, further cementing its standing as the most awarded Digital Marketing Agency in Sri Lanka with over 240 awards. These include the “SME Export Brand of the Year” at the SLIM Brand Excellence 2020 and 3 Awards at the prestigious HSMAI Adrian Awards for Digital Marketing Campaigns carried out for local and international clients.
Also, eMarketingEye is listed as the only digital agency among the “40 Best Workplaces in Sri Lanka 2020” by Great Place to Work (GPTW) Sri Lanka. It stands testament to the company’s desire to not only strive to achieve the best for its clientele but its employees as well. The company was also recognised as “10 Best Workplaces for Millennials in Sri Lanka 2020” and “10 Best Small and Medium IT/ITES Workplaces in Sri Lanka 2020”.
