Contrend’s content strategy development for United Overseas Bank secured a win at the annual Marketing Excellence Awards.
3 FEBRUARY 2022, SINGAPORE: On 23 November 2021, Contrend won first place, winning Gold in the Excellence in Marketing Innovation category at the tenth annual edition of the Marketing Excellence Awards in Singapore.
The win recognizes Contrend’s pivotal role in using artificial intelligence (AI) to build an audience-centric content strategy in Southeast Asia (SEA) for our esteemed client, United Overseas Bank (UOB).
“Contrend’s development and content teams worked hard and continued to innovate, pushing our technology forward, in order to deliver an effective and successful content strategy for, not only UOB, but many of our clients throughout 2021,” said Contrend CTO, Richard Jones.
The Marketing Excellence Awards are designed to celebrate, recognize and reward Singapore’s outstanding marketing campaigns. It is the premier platform for marketers to showcase their creative excellence, successful strategies, and effective delivery.
Following this prestigious achievement, Contrend is excited to continue using its unique AI- and machine learning- (ML) driven capabilities to assist with the development and evolution of the Schneider Electric Group’s existing content strategy. An internationally leading specialist in energy management, Schneider Electric’s global marketing team in Europe commissioned Contrend to assess the effectiveness of Schneider’s content compared to both their competitive set and the wider content landscape of two of Schneider’s key markets – France and the United States.
By comparing Schneider’s content to their competitors’ and to wider regional content landscapes, and with key insights from over 20 data sources and Contrend’s proprietary Engagement Index (EI) metric, Contrend will predict audience preferences, identify new content opportunities and generate automated actionable recommendations for Schneider. The results are designed to help Schneider optimize their digital presence, increase their audience engagement, and secure a strong competitive advantage.
Contrend will continue to help our clients throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia develop and activate award-winning, memorable content that attracts their target audiences and drives results.
