Investis Wins Gold at the Corporate & Financial Awards 2013
LONDON, June 19, 2013
LONDON, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Last night, Investis' excellence in communicating with the City and its
influencers was honoured at Communicate magazine's Corporate & Financial
Awards 2013. Investis won a Gold award in the category of Best Innovation for
its work with Tullow Oil.
The use of smartphones and tablets amongst shareholders and the general
population continues to grow and Tullow Oil sought to ensure that their
stakeholders could access company news and financial information no matter
what device they were using. Investis developed a mobile suite for the
company, comprised of three investor relations and media apps for Android,
iPad and iPhone. This multi-platform approach allows Tullow Oil to offer
accessible, up-to-date information on corporate news and finances. Two mobile
websites complete the suite: the first, for smartphone users, is a
mobile-optimised version of the desktop site; the second scales back the use
of graphics and interactive content to allow access for non-smartphone users,
particularly relevant in the African market.
Investis is Europe's leading specialist in digital corporate communications
for public companies. Services include corporate websites, social media
solutions, apps and mobile sites, video and webcasting, website tools and
integrated online reporting. Investis works with over 1,700 companies in 30
countries, from the smallest companies to the largest, including more than 70%
of the FTSE100. The company has offices in the UK, USA, Germany, Italy,
Finland and India.
The Corporate & Financial Awards, established by Communicate magazine, is the
industry benchmark of companies' communication with the City and its
influencers. The awards provided an opportunity for staff, companies, agencies
and beneficiaries alike, to see their efforts recognised and to celebrate
excellence in all aspects of city communication. The entries were judged by a
panel of experienced in-house practitioners and journalists in order to
celebrate excellence in all aspects of City communication - to the buyside,
the analysts, business & financial journalists, and the wider stakeholder
communities that influence them.
The Corporate & Financial Awards have been running since 2012. Now in 2013,
its second year running, the awards were distributed at a gala dinner at The
Victory Services Club, London and were hosted by financial analyst at
CooperCity, Louise Cooper.
Marcus Fergusson, Head of Marketing at Investis said: "We're delighted that
Tullow Oil has been recognised for their pioneering approach to mobile
communications. This is also the second time that Investis has scooped Gold
for Best Innovation in these awards and we're proud that we're continuing to
lead the field in developing the very best in digital corporate communications
Andrew Thomas, publishing editor of Communicate magazine, said: "Companies
don't just need to talk to the city; they also need to talk to those who
influence the city. The Corporate & Financial Awards is the only awards event
that focuses on both investor relations and financial media relations. This is
the second year, and we have more entrants, a stronger shortlist, and more
attendees celebrating excellence in corporate and financial communications."
