Accenture have been highlighted for the standout performance of their website during the prestigious Stevie Awards. The Stevies short-list, which sees Accenture win four gold and three silver honours, aims to celebrate the achievements of organisations and working professionals across the world. The trophies will be presented at the 14th annual International Business Awards ceremony, which will be hosted in October.

The annual International Business Awards have been hosted since 2002. The event praises high-achieving organisations and executives from around the world, through Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners – as determined by ratings from more than 200 executives, following more than 3,900 nominations from more than 60 nations. 

“We received a record number of nominations in the IBAs this year, and the judges were astounded by the inspiring stories of workplace success from all over the world,” said Stevie Awards founder and president Michael Gallagher. “We look forward to honouring the Stevie winners who join us in Barcelona on 21st October, and sharing their stories with the world on the Stevie Awards’ social channels."

Accenture scoops seven Stevie awards

While twelve professional services and consulting firms took home multiple awards in other areas, consulting industry heavyweights Accenture dominated proceedings in the website category. The firm received a major set of commendations, with four gold and three silver awards finding their way to the Dublin-incorporated consultancy. The tally bested an impressive 2015 ceremony, which saw the firm garner six website-category trophies, having also performed well in last year’s awards.

Following a golden Stevie for Best Online Press Room, Accenture were also announced as the winners of the top prize in Advertising, Marketing, Public Relations & Business Services – an area the firm has been investing heavily in over the course of 2017, having pledged to spend $1.8 billion on bulking up its digital offering by the end of the year. Fellow consulting firm Estymara Management Consulting, meanwhile, was awarded a joint bronze, the Dubai-based group sharing the title with SUNGWOOADCOM of Seoul. Accenture will also add Best User Interface to their trophy cabinet after the October ceremony, along with a golden Stevie for Best Web Writing/Content, having pipped food and drinks giant Coca-Cola to the post in that category.

Having meanwhile also gained plaudits for its DevOps offering in the nominations for the 2017 DevOps awards recently, Accenture are in line for a succession of silver Stevies too. They are due to collect a joint silver in the Best Home/Welcom Page category, sharing the honour with technology services experts Cisco Systems. The firm also received silvers in Best User Experience – finishing a joint second to Coca-Cola, along with the Australian Freelancer.com and Istanbul-based Odea Bank A.S – and in Best Overall Web Design, sharing the title with Comprend, a digital service company located in Stockholm.
