MELBOURNE, Australia, Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Melbourne based digital agency, Get Started was recently awarded the prestigious title of 'Best Digital Experience - Website' at the 2013 Melbourne Design Awards for the new Snooze website. Featuring a unique 'bedBUILDER' web application, the Snooze website offers an interactive digital experience, unlike any other in the Australian furniture and bedding industry, which gives customers the freedom to tailor their own 'dream bed' - for both design and comfort.
"Snooze came to us with an exciting goal for their new website - to redefine the bedding and furniture shopping experience they offered their customers by creating an online and mobile experience that complemented their in-store range," commented Get Started Managing Director, Adam Griffith.
"Not only did we create a unique digital experience for Snooze which enables their customers to browse through the Snooze product range in a more visual, emotive way, we also developed the first ever 'build your own bed' application. Using the Snooze bedBUILDER, customers can choose their own headboard and base in the fabric of their choice. They can also save their 'dream bed' for later or they can send their design to a store," he added.
Michelle Lucas, Digital Marketing Manager at Snooze said of the new Snooze website, "We couldn't be happier with the website that the team at Get Started created for us. Our Snooze team members are already finding that the Snooze bedBUILDER provides a fantastic addition to the customers' Snooze in-store experience."
"bedMATCH and the Snooze bedBUILDER are giving our customers an experience that they're not able to get anywhere else - and they love the fact that they can make their own dream bed."
"We're now able to give our customers a truly interactive digital experience which complements our in-store services. Snooze really does help take the guesswork out of buying a bed!" she added.
