ICT resellers are urged to use the power of their vote in the 2016 Channelwise Awards to ensure they get the best possible products and services from their vendors and distributors.Online voting for the SME and Consumer resellers in the 2016 Channelwise Awards is now open.
The results of the votes will culminate in the annual Channelwise Awards event, where resellers’ favourite vendors and distributors will be named.
The Channelwise Awards give resellers an opportunity to name the suppliers they prefer to work with, says Channelwise editor Mark Davison.
“However, the value of the voting goes beyond simply naming their favourite vendors and distributors,” he says. “Importantly, resellers are asked to rate the service they receive from their suppliers as well. This information can help vendors and distributors gauge how well they are doing in various areas, and take remedial action where necessary.
“It’s a great way for resellers to tell their suppliers what they really think about them – and what they’d like them to do in future.”
When they click on the survey, resellers will be asked select the category\ies they work in: components; end-user computing; servers, storage and networking; and printers, peripherals and consumables.
Once they check just those areas where they operate, they will be asked to choose their favourite vendors in a number of sub-categories.
At the end of each category, they will be asked to name their top distributors, and rank them on: ease of doing business; stockholding, logistics and delivery; credit availability; and channel programme.
All volume and SME resellers can cast their votes at: http://ChannelWise.Channelwise-Awards-2016-Consumer-Survey.sgizmo.com/s3/
The closing date for voting is 16 January 2016.
