Corra, a leading ecommerce agency with offices in New York and Los Angeles, announced today that its work for Ten Thousand Villages’ ecommerce website won the “Best in Class” Interactive Media Award (IMA) for 2012. Ten Thousand Villages, the country’s oldest and largest fair trade retailer, was one of only three companies out of nearly 200 entrants to receive the “Best in Class” honor. The retailer’s online store, www.tenthousandvillages.com, was evaluated in five key categories: design, content, feature functionality, usability and standards compliance/cross-browser compatibility.

“As for every one of our clients, our goal with Ten Thousand Villages’ online store was to create a high-quality customer experience. This award means a lot to us because when you put the five judging criteria together it shows we achieved exactly that,” said Corra CEO Ron Bongo. “We were fortunate to have great partners in this project. Ten Thousand Villages was excited from the start to embrace really innovative strategies and techniques. And Magento, of course, enabled such innovation with their powerful, flexible ecommerce platform.”

“We could not have achieved this level of success without the support and guidance of Corra,” said Chris Fenwick, ecommerce manager for Ten Thousand Villages. “They helped deliver a truly unique ecommerce platform to our customers and are a big reason why we received this award.”

Alongside prominent entrants such as Disney and Kraft, the Ten Thousand Villages website was judged on a scale of 0-100 in each of the five key categories.  Out of a total possible score of 500 points, TTV scored 481 points. The Interactive Media Awards annually recognize the highest standard of excellence in website design and development. The judges for each award are experienced professionals and leaders in web design, advertising, public relations, publishing, news and other industries.

This is the second time the Corra has been recognized with an IMA in ecommerce.  In 2010, Corra’s client, Golden Edibles, earned “Outstanding Achievement” in the same category.
