Press Release: Mars Wrigley and Bounteous Win the Acquia Engage Radical Innovators Award
Global consultancy recognized for co-innovation work alongside Mars Wrigley
Chicago — October 26, 2021 — Bounteous, a leading insights-driven digital experience consultancy and Acquia Global Partner, today announced its win alongside Mars Wrigley for the 2021 Acquia Engage Radical Innovators award.
The Acquia Engage Awards recognize world-class digital experiences that organizations are building with the Acquia Open Digital Experience Platform (DXP). With over 100 award submissions this year, the Bounteous and Mars Wrigley partnership stood out. Together, they produced TREAT TOWN™, the first-ever digital Halloween trick-or-treating experience. As customer demands evolved, Mars Wrigley's co-innovation partnership with Bounteous allowed them to respond with the speed and agility of a category leader.
"We're honored to accept this award alongside Mars Wrigley," said Seth Dobbs, Chief Technology Officer at Bounteous. "Bringing the Mars Wrigley Treat Town concept to life in such a short period of time required true integration and pushed the envelope on creative digital solutions. We were able to guide cross-functional teams across discipline and organization to help Mars Wrigley bring consumers better moments and more smiles in an innovative virtual environment, integrating technology, purchasing, and online and in-store redemption in ways that had never been done before."
This year's submissions highlighted creative responses to customer challenges presented by today's rapidly evolving environment. The nominated solutions all demonstrated an exceptional level of functionality, integration, performance, and overall user experience. A panel of independent judges ultimately chose the winning projects.
"In today's changing climate, digital experiences are more vital than ever," said Lynne Capozzi, Chief Marketing Officer at Acquia. "Our partners and customers are going above and beyond to use open platforms and technologies to support customers and employees. Acquia is proud to showcase this year's winners, who have truly risen to the challenge."
