AIM CX category sponsor for WIM Awards 2017

Axim is a business-focused customer experience business. Why? Because the biggest business challenges are solved by CX. Because the greatest barriers to great customer experience are business centred – like culture, process and technology. And because customer delight comes with big business challenges: like revenue growth and cost reduction.

We help organizations to operationalize customer experience by engineering new and better operating models with CX at their heart; by architecting the organizational excellence great CX demands; by transforming data and analytics into the lifeblood of CX; and by powering the context and personalization that transforms brand experience. We call it 4-Dimensional Customer Experience™.

Marketing is evolving. The traditional blunt instrument of grandstanding brand presentations aimed at broad demographic targets is being complemented by – and in some cases replaced by – subtler, more continuous, empathetic and personalised conversations with customers. Companies are realizing that they must change to become not just customer-focused but customer-obsessed. Managing and improving Customer Experience is therefore of paramount importance to the modern marketer.

Axim are therefore very proud to be sponsoring – for the first time – an Award to be given to a woman who has been an Inspirational leader in the field of Customer Experience. Find out more at

Amigo Technology

Amigo Technology sponsor the WIM Awards 2017

Amigo is a technology that helps enterprise marketers overcome the marketing execution gap. The ‘marketing execution gap’ is the chasm between what marketers want to deliver, and what they can actually deliver due to legacy IT, siloed data and overstretched development resource. Amigo sidesteps these issues by enabling marketers to deliver campaigns far more quickly and for much less money than alternatives. Most marketing technologies are built by technologists, with little regard for the objectives and challenges of marketers. Amigo is different – it’s not MarTech for marketing, but MarTech for marketers. Find out more at amigotechnology.
