Double Innovation Awards for Mono Solutions
It’s time to celebrate! The Mono Team is thrilled to share that we’ve won two awards for our efforts to drive business and empower small business owners during the COVID-19 pandemic. Awarded by SIINDA, a leading digital marketing and local search association in Europe, Mono has been recognized as the Gold winner in two categories.
Siinda Digital Innovation Awards
Each year Siinda invites members to apply for the Digital Marketing & Innovation Awards. Granted the ongoing pandemic in 2020, the awards were adjusted this year to focus on how products and services have helped SMBs to drive business, secure business, open new business channels or support them during the COVID-19 crisis.
This year’s awards process included a record number of applications, and new categories, including: Service Innovation, Technical Innovation, Local Search Innovation. An overall category of Master Innovation to honor companies that had the overall combined points. In each category, both vendors (technology or service providers) and B2SMB providers (publishers, directories, media agencies) were awarded.
Mono wins not once - but TWICE.
At Mono, we’re truly honored to not only win once - but twice - in this year’s Siinda Awards. On behalf of the entire Mono team, our CEO Louise Lachmann would like to say a big (and digital!) thank you to our partners.
