We are ecstatic to announce that our work with Brakes to launch a B2C site within 7 days, to help consumers who were struggling to get hold of anything from toilet roll to flour at the beginning of the global pandemic, has won an award at the Stevie International Business Awards.

The Most Valuable Service category recognises and celebrates consumer services that have been developed since the beginning of 2020 to counter the impact of COVID-19.

Feedback from the judges

“Covid spread was fast, and you responded at lightning speed to meet immediate customer needs in a safe manner – Top Notch Action!”

“You have shown remarkable perception in identifying new business opportunities and agility to make it happen. Exceptionally impressive!!”

“A creative initiative, super fast and filled a big gap during the pandemic. Nice to read how the service evolved to suit their customers.”

Maggie Gallagher, president of The Stevie Awards, commented:

“Despite the unprecedented impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on organisations and working people worldwide, the number and quality of nominations we received in this year’s International Business Awards attests to the continued outstanding performance of many organisations. The commitment we’ve seen through these nominations to maintaining the success, health, and safety of employees, customers, and communities is truly impressive.”

Barnaby Moffat, Commercial Director at KPS, Commented:

“To be recognised as an award winner for most valuable service within the COVID – 19 response category is a real privilege. We’re delighted with this achievement and honoured that we were able to help Brakes - and shoppers - during such difficult times.

The rapid speed in which we were able to get the Direct to consumer site up for our client, Brakes, was testament to the hard work and dedication of each and every member of the team – we couldn’t be more proud of them”
