CMS Distribution won in two of the most important categories at the 17th annual Tech Excellence Awards ceremony in Dublin. The Awards recognise excellence not only in implementing tech solutions, but also in the support and servicing of channel partners.
“After an incredible year, we’re delighted to win in not one, but two categories at the Tech Excellence Awards – Company of the Year and the Channel Programme of the Year, recognising our effort to deliver innovation and added value to the channel”, says Frank Salmon, founder and CEO of CMS Distribution.
“2016 was a year of investment in our people, vendors and customers and it is fantastic that our customers have rewarded us with their business. Winning Company of the Year is the icing on the cake”, Frank added.
In 2017, CMS Distribution became the fastest growing IT and CE distributor in the UK and Ireland, with sales rising by 82% from £178 million in 2015 to £325 million in 2016, and offices across six locations in the UK and Ireland, plus locations in the Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, Australia and China.
CMS Distribution has won the Channel Programme of the Year with the joint CMS-Webroot Next-Gen Partner Programme, offering our customers high-end staff training, tender process assistance, immediate enquiry handling, business planning, marketing and accreditation support.
“Although our partnership with Webroot only started less than a year ago, we are delighted that we have created a channel programme for our partners that is not only successful but also award winning”, added Patrick Healy, Managing Director (Ireland) at CMS Distribution.
