According to a press release from Guidance Solutions, several technical details found on murdochs.com led to the award: "The feature-rich [Product Detail Page] includes product details, features and tabbed navigation for specs, ratings and reviews. It is integrated with Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to encourage viral marketing of the item, and it also contains a 'Find In Store' functionality that lists available inventory of the product at the listed location. The site also features live chat, a store locator, newsletter and promotional email sign-up, and downloadable coupons."
Marty Leamy, President of EPiServer Inc., had further praise of the e-commerce site. "Murdoch's Ranch & Home Supply is a creative and highly functional site, demonstrative of Guidance's deep expertise in retail e-commerce," Leamy said.

The design represents the Murdoch's brand, and gives shoppers a fun and socially integrated experience."

"For the folks in our e-merchandising department, we like that the site design allows us to easily add new products for our customers to shop, purchase, and review," Verzuh said.
