"We try our best to be agile and spend the cycles to understand prospects and customers; we can always gauge ourselves with internal results: KPIs, goals and business growth. But to be recognized by a technology partner -- by your industry -- that really is an honor and gives our team external validation," said Jamie Berger, senior manager, Digital Marketing at Dell. "The Searchie confirms our team is staying ahead of the curve, and affirms it's doing industry-leading work. The award also is a nice compass. In business and marketing, change is the only constant, and the Searchie reflects our work to march the business in the right direction."
