Now the winners have been chosen and we are very happy to announce that we were able to take home the most important award of all “Best Distributor 2016”. We particularly appreciate the fact that we scored so well with our retailers this year, in spite of this having been a more difficult year. We were able to convince Telecom Handel readers in six categories: We came out top in the areas of end customer marketing (mark 2.30), shop / PoS fittings (2.35), marketing of services (2.29), corporate management (2.76), multichannel/web-shop/e-commerce (2.27) and partner programme (2.36). We are particularly pleased to have won the new category multichannel/web-shop/e-commerce, and this makes it clear that the industry has recognized the importance of our cross-channel concept. We were also able to score in the areas of complaints procedure (2.19), web/social media presence (2.44), repair service and processing (2.22), bonus programme / campaigns (2.36), demo/sample devices (3.55) and ERP / PoS system (2.33), where we came in second.

Telecom Handel readers’ poll 2015 More than 2,500 retailers cast their votes and submitted their rating this year – more than ever before. We are very happy to announce that this year we were able to celebrate not one but two successes: Best Distributor for Private Customers with the rating 2.24 and runner up for the overall title “Best Distributor” with the rating 2.26. A close run race, as all that separated us from first place was a razor-thin 0.02 points.We were able to convince readers in the final readers’ choice for the overall title in five categories: we are unbeaten in the categories ERP or PoS systems, support with end customer marketing, shop or PoS fittings, bonus programs/campaigns and partner programs. Categories we can be especially proud of, as they help retailers to remain on an equal footing with e-tailers.We were of course pleased to see that the connected store received a lot of recognition as the concept of the future for the brick and mortar trade. Roland Bernhard, editor in chief of Telecom Handel, praised us as a “particularly visionary company”.
