Samsung cleans up at the channelwise awards

Samsung South Africa has once again come out tops in the sixth annual Channelwise Awards. The annual awards ceremony recognises the top preforming vendors and distributors in South Africa, voted for by SME and enterprise IT channels.

This year, for the second year in a row, Samsung was named the top vendor in the Handheld Computers and Monitors categories as voted for by Consumer/SME Resellers. It was also voted as the best vendor for Handheld Computers and Monitors by Enterprise Resellers.

The survey, hosted by FutureWave Media goes out to a qualified database of over 5 000 Channelwise subscribers and is indicative of exactly which vendors and distributors the country’s resellers trust doing business with. At the same time, it gives a clear indication of how vendors are doing compared to their industry competitors

Over 1 600 resellers participated in this year’s Channelwise Awards, making it the biggest one yet. “Resellers are asked to choose the best vendor in a number of categories, rating their performance according to various criteria. This all takes place online, after which an independent auditor signs off on the results. Resellers are also given the chance to let the suppliers know what they think of them and what they could do in the future to better their service,” says Mark Davison, Editor of Channelwise.

“Because these awards are based on distributors and resellers that interact with Samsung on a regular basis, it is a clear testament that we go beyond just creating great products. We are professional, work well with partners and always available to assist as well as know our products to identify which is best suited for any given task. Winning the same awards for two years in a row just re-affirms that Samsung dominates in these categories,” concludes Mike van Lier, Director: Consumer Electronics (CE) at Samsung South Africa.
