In an inspiring night of celebration at Hardwick Hall Hotel in Sedgefield, on Thursday 9th May, Digital Edge are proud to have competed in the Make Your Mark Business Awards against some of the finest companies on Aycliffe Business Park, the North East’s largest business park. The digital agency edged the competition, winning the prestigious Service Business of the Year award.
Digital Edge, a collaborative and forward-thinking digital solutions company, that specialises in website design, marketing and software development, was founded by Graham Marsh and Ian Proctor as Pixel Media in 2016. The company aimed to revolutionise the local digital landscape through the Wix platform. A significant rebrand and merger in late 2021 transformed the company into Digital Edge, cementing its position as a leader in the digital world. The merger added software development to its portfolio, expanded its team to 11, and established two offices in the UK.
By 2022, Digital Edge had become a Wix Enterprise partner, supporting businesses worldwide at the enterprise level and are now on a leading steering group for Wix, supporting them in becoming the leading Web platform in the world. The company has built strong relationships with local businesses, making significant contributions to their online presence and operational efficiency. Their international reach is also evident as they continue to collaborate with businesses all over the world with more than 30% of their work being carried out in Australia, USA, Canada and across Europe.
“Customer service is at the heart of everything we do. We listen to our clients, understand their challenges, and offer personalised support,” said Director Ian Proctor. “Our core values are creativity, collaboration, and outstanding value. These have been a constant throughout our journey with our commitment to these principles guiding our growth.
“It is a real honour to be a part of the Make Your Mark awards. We set up on Aycliffe Business Park seven years ago because we saw it as a real advantage for our business. We never expected the community to be so supportive and that is where the real benefits lay.”
Digital Edge consistently delivers outstanding value by offering quality digital solutions tailored to each client’s specific objectives. As leading Wix Velo, Studio, and marketing specialists, the team at Digital Edge ensures that every solution exceeds client expectations. Their deep understanding of the Wix ecosystem allows them to provide comprehensive website solutions, from stunning designs to smooth integrations and advanced functionalities.
With a vision to provide award-winning digital solutions, Digital Edge is committed to staying at the forefront of technology, offering cutting-edge solutions that enable businesses to thrive. The company’s dedication to continuous learning, adaptation and evolution ensures that Digital Edge remains a leader in digital services, delivering outstanding value to its partners. They prioritise ongoing training and skill development for their team members through continuing professional development opportunities. This commitment ensures that employees stay updated on trends and deliver exceptional results for clients.
“For me, winning the award is a celebration and representation of the incredible team we have at Digital Edge,” said Director Graham Marsh.
“This award is particularly close to our hearts because Digital Edge is a local business run by two local lads. Being recognised for delivering exceptional service within our own community is truly amazing. Winning the Service Business of the Year award among such stiff competition on the North East’s largest business park shows our dedication and the strong relationships we have built with our neighbours. We are incredibly proud to be acknowledged by our community.”
In summary, Digital Edge is pushing the boundaries of what is possible with the Wix software and are in hot demand from businesses across the world. Their reputation within Wix precedes them where they were put up in lights on the Nasdaq building in Times Square in October last year. As Digital Edge continues to grow and evolve, it remains set to make a significant impact, both locally and globally.
