The Vendor awards recognise high-achieving technology organisations for business excellence and channel value.
In New Zealand, we’re fortunate to enjoy an incredibly rich and diverse vendor community, consisting of everything from young, high-energy vendors pioneering new and exciting categories through to the world-class titans of the tech sector, who support humanity’s progress with seemingly increasing vigour and pace through their immense investment in R&D and technology advancement. Ingram Micro is extremely privileged to represent over 200 of these vendors in New Zealand, spanning every technology category, which is why it’s important for us to sponsor the Vendor Value categories in this year’s Reseller News Innovation Awards and why we’re so incredibly proud to do so.
In an era of accelerated pace of change, seldom do we take time to stop and catch a breath, these Awards represent an annual opportunity to pause and reflect on the industry as a whole and the critical part the channel plays in our industry. With this award we recognise the vendors who are having the greatest positive impact on the end-user customers they serve and the channel that enables them to reach those customers at speed and scale. These awards recognise the vendors who are excelling in their categories for the business outcomes they deliver, which are critically supported by their channel partners.
Irrespective of whether you represent a start-up local vendor or a large multi-national, are a boutique distributor of specialised solutions or a broad-base distributor, a sole-trader reseller servicing a small number of customers or a large systems integrator with a nationwide presence, delivering complex solutions, you each have your own important part to play in building and maintaining a thriving channel ecosystem. This is particularly true of the innovative technology vendors supplying that machine, for without them we would have no need of a channel.
As New Zealand’s largest distributor of technology solutions, Ingram Micro is proud to serve and support a large proportion of the vendors and reseller partners that make up this country’s vibrant channel community. Further, we recognise the indispensable role the channel plays in putting the latest technology solutions into the hands of the very customers who are leveraging them in new and creative ways to solve the complex problems customers are faced with, to bring entertainment and enjoyment to the world and to drive business growth and value.
In sponsoring the Vendor Value category, Ingram Micro salutes and pays tribute to all the vendors who provide value to the channel each and every day and particularly to those who are leading the way in terms of the innovation, excellence and value they provide right here in New Zealand!
Congratulations to this years’ deserving finalists and winners! We’re looking forward to seeing what remarkable new advancements you’ll be bringing to the market in the year ahead.
