Rightmove wins OPP Best Online Platform awardRightmove Overseas has won the ‘Best Online Platform’ category for the second year running in the recent 2009 Overseas Property Professional Industry Awards. In an article on the OPP website, the OPP paid tribute to “next generation players leading by example” and said that “Despite the downturn, the industry’s most pro-active and innovative property companies submitted some exceptional entries for this year’s OPP Industry Awards according to judges.

“Feedback from judges was that the standard was much higher than last year,” said Alex Evans, Group Editorial Director of OPP and chair of the judging panel. “With entries from a broad cross-section of the industry – including agents, developers, introducer networks, media owners, and a variety of associated services – judges remarked that they had a real sense of an industry maturing, innovating and adapting to a new market.”

Judges comments on Rightmove’s winning entry were “A comprehensive and well put together entry that displayed a huge effort to find out more about its visitor traffic, qualify it and help its advertising partners to sell more effectively.”

Rob Wilson, Head of Rightmove Overseas said “I’m hugely proud of our team and the effort they put in to really understand the challenges our advertisers face. We pride ourselves on being flexible and really listening to our customers to figure out solutions that work for them. We all hate resting on our laurels so adapting and working hard to deliver exceptional value when the market is so challenging is second nature to us. Winning this award for the second year running is testament to the work we’ve put in to develop a range of great advertising products and payment options that really help our customers get results in a tough market.”
