OpenMarket Wins Mobile Entertainment Award for its Gimme Credit Coca-Cola Campaign
OpenMarket named Best Transaction Provider at the Mobile Entertainment Awards for its innovative mobile crediting promotional campaign
LONDON, United Kingdom - 19th November, 2010
OpenMarket, the UK's leading mobile transaction hub, today announced it has won the prestigious Mobile Entertainment Award for Best Transaction Provider with its hugely successful Gimme Credit Coca-Cola campaign.
OpenMarket was recognised for its Gimme Credit Coca-Cola campaign which ran throughout the summer months of 2009 and 2010 in association with mobile marketing agency Sponge. The crediting campaign enabled money to be added to both pre- and post-pay mobile accounts of Coca-Cola customers by redeeming unique promotion codes located on millions of cans and bottles of Fanta, Dr. Pepper and Sprite. The Gimme Credit campaign was UK's first cross-network mobile crediting promotion and helped raise brand awareness and increase customer uptake.
"It is a great honour and privilege to gain industry recognition for OpenMarket for such an innovative product as mobile crediting," said Alex Moir, OpenMarket's General Manager for Europe. "This is an achievement which the whole OpenMarket team contributed towards. We are looking forward to developing mobile crediting solutions for more clients in the coming year."
