The winner will be announced at The Blades Awards banquet during MivaCon 2014, Miva Merchant’s 14th annual conference, on Thursday, March 6th, 2014.
MivaCon 2014 will take place in San Diego, CA, March 5 – 7, 2014, at The Hyatt Regency La Jolla. The annual ecommerce event, hosted by Miva Merchant, draws hundreds of B2B and B2C storeowners with content-rich, actionable information to help grow and improve their online businesses.
Maps of the Past has been nominated for its advanced use of Google Maps and PCINet’s GMAP module to tie historic maps to current locations. This module gives users a quick way to search a present day Google Map for historic maps that are available in the area they choose. The map app shows, at a mouse-click, the current-day location of the mapped area. Maps of the Past experts take quality care to ensure all the historical data is accurate in each vintage map.
Maps of the Past will be recognized at The Blades Awards, along with other merchants that have achieved excellence in ecommerce. To qualify for “Best Feature,” the store’s feature must be both unique and valuable to the customer’s shopping experience, as well as to the merchant’s back end operations. The other categories include Best Website of 2013, Most Compelling Story, and Most Innovative Product.
“The Blades Awards are a way to honor and recognize outstanding ecommerce retailers that are developing new and innovative ways to use Miva Merchant’s robust ecommerce platform to achieve online success,” said Rick Wilson, President of Miva Merchant. “Each of The Blades Awards nominees are notable ecommerce players that are leading the way in the new era of ecommerce, and we are excited to showcase them at MivaCon 2014.”
