Bytes Document Solutions (BDS) has named Oxbow the winner of the Double Platinum Partner award, acknowledging the company’s remarkable growth in Xerox sales. This is a new award introduced in the 2013/2014 financial year, for business partners who have exceed certain targets, and was given to the top Platinum Partner with the highest revenue for Xerox equipment, spare parts and service.

Oxbow, a Xerox reseller and a provider of managed print services and office automation solutions, accepted the award at Bytes Document Solutions Golden Globe Awards ceremony which was held to acknowledge partners and commemorate BDS’s jubilee year – the company is celebrating 50 years of innovation and development in South Africa.

“Last year we won the Concessionaire of the Year award, and this year we built on that success by bagging a Double Platinum Partner award,” says Brett Furlong, MD of Oxbow.

“Oxbow had grown rapidly with Xerox and we are proud of the fact that we do not rest on our laurels. As a young, highly energetic team, we are constantly driven to perform and Bytes Documents Solutions is the perfect partner for us, especially with Xerox named as the industry leader in managed print services by leading research firms. We look forward to expanding our partnership with BDS and taking our business to the next level.”

Founded in 2003, Oxbow’s enthusiasm and drive have led to the company becoming the biggest Xerox reseller in Africa.

“The company’s commitment to provide printing solutions backed by professional after-sales service, ensures consistent, high-quality hassle-free printing, products and services for its customers,” says Ronnie Oeschger – divisional director Xerox Indirect Channels at Bytes Document Solutions.

“We congratulate Brett and his team for their dedication and motivation. This strategic partnership has worked in the best interests of both organisations and demonstrates what can be accomplished by providing superior solutions and support for customers. We’re looking forward to seeing what Oxbow achieves in the next year.”
