A Dorset telecommunications company is gearing up for the finale of a county-wide business challenge, designed to find the website most hotly tipped for online success.
Windsor Telecom, based in Poole, is to take on three other finalists at e-Den2 on 18 September as the five month contest reaches its climax at Bournemouth University. Each candidate will present their website for a second time to a panel of web-business experts who will decide the overall winner of the competition.
This judgement will be based on the business that has best used the advice given to it by the e-Den judges at the qualifying heats. Windsor Telecom is up against CreditPlus, TDSi and Me-mo for the title. Prizes for the victor include: a £6,000 server package, £2,500 of web development work, £1,500 of PPC consultancy and £1,000 membership of a business entrepreneurs group.
Windsor Telecom’s marketing manager, Mark Adams, is representing the company, which also supplies call management systems alongside its memorable telephone numbers. Adams said: “We were in the process of completely redesigning our website when the opportunity to take part in e-Den2 presented itself. We wanted to ensure that our new site gave our customers and web-visitors a totally enjoyable experience, with improved navigation and totally relevant and useful information that was easily accessible.
“I knew that the feedback and advice offered by the panel would help us to achieve this aim and this was my primary incentive for entering the competition,” he said.
