Comcast Wins 2014 Sitecore Experience Awards – Overall Winner for North America

Long Island, NY May 19, 2015 – Last week Sitecore released the 2014 Sitecore Experience awards, and named Comcast’s xfinity.com the Overall Winner. All the winners this year show the amazing quality of digital experiences currently being made upon Sitecore. Hedgehog Development is honored to say they were involved in the Comcast xfinity.com project, and congratulate all included.

“Comcast’s xfinity.com project was one of the largest, most complex, and interesting projects I’ve worked on in a while. What Hedgehog, Comcast and the rest of the partners were able to achieve is extremely impressive.” Said Charles Turano, Solution Architect, Sitecore MVP and Hedgehog Lead on the xfinity.com project. “I’m really proud of what we all accomplished. The complexity involved in this project cannot be understated, and the way all our teams worked together for a common goal was awesome!”

Hedgehog Development, along with 3 other partners, were able to assist the Comcast team in its continuous efforts to deliver cutting-edge experiences throughout their user’s lifecycle. Using Sitecore has allowed Comcast to improve their efforts around digital targeting and personalized offering, additionally allowing users to complete orders without contacting an agent.

The business control of personalization has also been enormously impactful when it comes to surfacing relevant content for the users. All of these optimizations has been beneficial for Comcast, with millions of self-service transactions occurring regularly and approximately one-third of their customers managing their accounts online.
