Educational Experience is a finalist in the 2014 Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards.

Our business was selected as a finalist in the Excellence in Innovation category for our state-of-the-art website, which uses the Magento platform.

Educational Experience was the first company in Australia to use the Celebros Advanced Search technology. We were one of the first to incorporate an innovative digital marketing platform called Listrak.

Launched in June 2013, the website has revolutionised the shopping and online experience for our customers. The website is an easy, more convenient and user friendly tool for educators and parents to order learning resources.

An additional module for our fundraising site, which allows parents to purchase gifts while raising invaluable funds for their school or early learning centre, was launched in September 2013. A third module was launched for our trade customers in March 2014.

The website was developed by the marketing team at Educational Experience in conjunction with ecommerce experts eWave. It has substantially grown the number of customers shopping online, doubling our site traffic and sales.

Website development will continue as our business invests in more customer friendly online tools.

Educational Experience is one of Australia’s leading suppliers of educational resources based at Gateshead. With over 35 years’ experience, we pride ourselves on providing quality learning resources to support children to learn, develop and play.

Award winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner held on Saturday 12 July 2014 at Belmont 16s.
