SapientNitro wins best in show at Digiday Retail Awards

SapientNitro with Fuse Project took home Best in Show for its work developing the Briggo Coffee Haus at last night’s first annual Digiday Retail Awards gala.

Briggo Coffee Haus is a fully automated robotic barista that allows people to order and customize their drinks remotely via their laptop, tablet, or mobile device. To realize this vision, Briggo partnered with a team from SapientNitro and Fuse Project, who immersed themselves in the customer experience, solving complex account systems and multi-channel ordering scenarios — to create the digital platform and Briggo storefront. The first Briggo Coffee Haus was launched at the University of Texas in Austin this past summer, with plans to open additional kiosks in airports, hospitals and corporate campuses dotted across the United States.

Sapient also won best m-commerce experience for the Coffee Haus and Best Digital Retail Environment for their work with LensCrafters at an evening that celebrated overall excellence and breakthrough achievement in digital retail innovation, marketing and advertising.

Other winners include Nike with R/GA for OneNike in the Best Retail Brand Website Experience category, DigitasLBi for its Miller Lite Fantasy Football in Best Digital Brand Marketing Campaign and BBDO New York for Lowe’s Vine-based “Fix in Six” campaign in Best Social Brand Program.

Winners of  the Digiday Retail Awards were selected from 44 finalists across 15 categories, ranging from Best E-Commerce Experience to Best Content Marketing Program. Judges — selected from the staffs of bebe, Big Spaceship, Laird + Partners, mono and Deep Focus — viewed and voted on creative from all finalists.

The Digiday Retail Awards were presented last night at an event at City Winery in Manhattan. For a full list of our judges and information on judging criteria, see here.
