For the second year in a row, we won Co-pack and Fulfilment company of the year!

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our talented team, we were able to snag the award for our continued delivery on KPIs and an all-round impressive service. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, there wasn’t the usual event which would normally be hosted by the UK Packaging Awards but it was still as exciting to hear it over the phone!

Granby’s promotional marketing team brought home Gold from two categories at the annual IPM COGS Awards – for Print Management and Innovation.

Our Gold Award for Print Management was in regard to the promotional merchandise for the International Women’s Day campaign. This annual global campaign is a very high profile event where quality or the printed materials are paramount. We also managed the kit collation and global distribution efficiently, ensuring all orders were delivered in full, on time, for the global event.

IPM COGS Awards Innovation

Granby’s promotional marketing team brought home Gold from two categories at the annual IPM COGS Awards – for Print Management and Innovation.

The Gold awarded for innovation was for our promotional marketing app, SwiftReceipt. This is a digital receipt validation tool that confirms proof of purchase in seconds. Nespresso adopted SwiftReceipt for their 2018 promotional campaign, significantly reducing the validation time allowing rewards to be distributed to customers in much shorter lead time. SwiftReceipt also easily managed increased redemption volumes efficiently and without impact on the customer experience
