Commerce Layer, Frequence and Khoros are among the 2022 Digiday Technology Awards winners

The 2022 Digiday Technology Awards winners demonstrated how companies are diving head-first into new technologies and adapting to meet the needs of the digital media industry. This year, e-commerce, sustainability and influencer marketing emerged as themes most often seen among the entrants and subsequent winners. 

For example, Commerce Layer is among the judges’ picks, winning Best E-Commerce Technology for its API-first checkout solution. As a composable solution, Commerce Layer helps brands scale into new markets and digital channels without tearing down and rebuilding their existing e-commerce infrastructures. Chilly’s, a fast-growing reusable beverage containers and accessories maker, re-platformed its e-commerce site with Commerce Layer, expanding from five to 36 international markets. Following the switch with Commerce Layer, Chilly’s has seen a 41% drop in checkout abandonment, a 24% increase in mobile and an 18% increase in overall conversions.

For Best Sales Automation Tools & Platform, Frequence claimed the award for its work helping media companies automate and grow their local advertising. Frequence’s end-to-end solutions equip clients with the tools necessary to create personalized, multichannel media proposals with campaign insights as well as launch, manage and optimize omnichannel campaigns. Using Frequence’s SmartProposal advertising technology solution, one media company tripled its omnichannel revenue, empowering its team to pitch its tactics confidently, knowing their proposals provided the maximum reach based on industry-specific data.

Khoros earned a win for Best Social Analytics Platform based on how it enables global enterprise brands to create human connections with customers across multiple digital touchpoints. The customer engagement platform empowers brands to understand their customers’ needs and wants and resolve customer conflicts quickly. HR services company Randstad worked with Khoros to reach new audiences, including Gen Z users starting their careers, via TikTok strategies. After partnering with Khoros, Randstad saw a positive increase in content and campaign performance by having more metrics accessible via dashboards with business context across TikTok and other social channels.
