Toshiba Earns Business Technology Association’s Top 2010 ‘Channel’s Choice’ Award, Presented at ITEX
Kansas City, Mo (March 2010) Toshiba America Business Solutions (TABS) was recently presented with the 2010 Channel’s Choice Superior Performance award by the Business Technology Association (BTA). Tom Walter, director of aftermarket sales, marketing and operations at TABS, accepted the coveted award March 4 from 2009-10 BTA President Bill James during a reception hosted by BTA at the ITEX Show in Las Vegas, Nev. This is the 11th time TABS has received BTA’s top award since the Channel’s Choice Awards were established in 1989. In addition, TABS received Channel’s Choice Awards in three other performance categories: Corporate Support, Distribution and Inventory.
Two other vendors were also presented with 2010 Channel’s Choice awards at the BTA reception as well. Muratec America Inc. received an award for its Outstanding Performance as a Secondary Product Line Provider. It was accepted by Jim D’Emidio, president of Muratec America. This is the seventh time Muratec has received the award.
Copystar received the 2010 Channel’s Choice Award for Product Line. The award was accepted by Kevin Reidy, vice president of sales for Copystar, a division of Kyocera Mita America Inc.
In late 2009, BTA mailed ballots to all of its dealer members and a number of dealers outside of the membership. The association also posted the ballot on the BTA Web site and encouraged the industry’s hardware vendors to provide their dealers with a link to the ballot for them to download, complete and return to BTA. The ballots asked dealers to rate their primary and secondary line vendors in key performance categories. The balloting results determined the Channel’s Choice Award winners.
“The Channel’s Choice Award program provides dealers with a means of recognizing and honoring those vendors that are the most supportive of the BTA channel,” said James. “Through the years, we have honored a number of deserving vendors for their outstanding product lines and exceptional levels of performance and support. We congratulate each of this year’s winners and express our sincere thanks for their exceptional support of the BTA channel.”
