The ARN ICT Industry Awards are held annually to recognise high achieving technology organisations over the past year. There are 8 categories for the awards; Vendor, Distributor, Partner, Community, Personal Innovation, Homegrown Innovators, Cloud and Telecommunications. Each category has up to 5 questions as part of the award criteria, with a mix of varied questions, organisations have a chance to put their best foot forward in answering the criteria. The submissions are judged by a panel of 100 and from there, the shortlist panel selects the finalists for each category. The shortlist judging panel is made up of ARN’s President and Publisher, Susan Searle; ARN editor, Allan Swann; ARN Associate Editor, Events, Jennifer O’Brien; Channel Dynamics’ Moheb Moses; and Hall of Fame inductee, David Henderson.
EMPR is very proud to be 1 of the 5 finalists within the Hardware Distributor category for the 2015 ARN ICT Industry Awards! Across all categories, there was a huge response from 460 entrants, this makes 2015 ARN’s record year.
Distributors are an integral link between Vendor and Reseller organisations when bringing technologies to market. The Distributor Awards aim to honour those organisations doing the best job of helping Resellers secure customer sales and ongoing revenue streams.
Our Chief Commercial Officer and Group Marketing Manager worked together to ensure our submission for the Hardware Distributor Category would not go unnoticed. We were judged on our abilities around credit, logistics, marketing and services initiatives and as a result of our submission and hard work over the past year, was chosen as 1 of the 5 finalists in this category. We are very proud of this achievement as we knew we were up against some great IT powerhouses! The team will be attending the celebration dinner held at the Hilton Sydney on the 10th of September where the winners will be revealed!
