NEW ORLEANS, LA – 365 Connect, the New Orleans-based, award-winning online technology platform provider for the multifamily housing industry, announced today that the company has received a Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award for its Marketing Syndication Platform from the Summit International Awards Organization. This highly coveted international award further cements 365 Connect’s role as the leader in creating leading-edge, web-based technology platforms for the multifamily housing industry.
The Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award (Summit MEA) recognizes and rewards companies for innovative and cutting-edge creative work that uses strategy and results-based effectiveness to create solutions in today's marketplace. The Summit MEA is unique because it reinforces that the goal of marketing communications is to change, influence or reinforce a target audience's knowledge, attitudes or beliefs. Using this premise as a basis for its judging criteria, the competition is becoming a true arbiter of marketing communication effectiveness. During the 2014 event, judges analyzed submissions and selected only 8% to receive the top spots. A truly international competition, the Summit MEA received submissions from the following twelve countries: Canada, Denmark, Hong Kong, Poland, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and the United States.
The Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award recognizes 365 Connect for its revolutionary Marketing Syndication Platform. The 365 Connect Marketing Syndication Platform delivers automated real-time updates to high traffic housing search engines and classified websites. A fully integrated solution that eliminates redundant marketing efforts and seamlessly updates pricing and availability from a single platform, the platform is proven to reduce operating expenses for multifamily housing operators.
“Distinguishing between creativity and effectiveness is a difficult task, so winning a Summit MEA is a significant achievement,” said Jocelyn Luciano, Executive Director for the Summit International Awards. “The combination of experienced judges and our tough criteria ensures that only deserving submissions receive Summit MEA recognition.”
365 Connect President and CEO Kerry W. Kirby stated, “365 Connect is proud to have its marketing syndication platform recognized on an international level, and we are truly honored to receive this highly acclaimed award.
