“Hermes Creative Awards honors the messengers and creators of the information revolution. Armed with their imaginations and computers, Hermes winners bring their ideas to life through traditional and digital platforms. Each year, competition judges evaluate the creative industry’s best publications, branding collateral, websites, videos, and advertising, marketing, and communication programs.” 


The retailer's unique needs for various fundraising stakeholders prompted the build of a custom account access structure that culminated in a custom CRM for Big Kahuna Fundraising. The two main groups of users at various levels: educators (schools, administrators, classrooms, teachers, and individuals) and families (all children or individuals) were given different access levels and views based on their unique needs.

With Virid's work, "Team operations were simplified and fundraiser management for schools was brought online for the first time." The custom CRM created an easier experience for fundraisers to enter orders, customers to purchase and arrange delivery, and schools to facilitate fundraising events. 


“Hermes Creative Awards is administered by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP). The international organization consists of several thousand marketing, communication, advertising, public relations, digital media production, and freelance professionals. AMCP oversees awards and recognition programs, provides judges, and awards outstanding achievement and service to the profession,” explains HCA.
