The Best Overall European Premier Channel Partner went to the Italian company Digimax srl, a leader in the distribution of products for food, industrial PCs and digital signage in Italy. Their overall growth with Advantech products was phenomenal in 2011. Its success can be attributed to their excellent sales and customer services, and the implementation of the newest Advantech technology and products in the challenging Italian market.
“Our main asset and success came from the recovering electronics market, large expansion within existing customers and achievements in areas such as the transport industry, high quality research centers, and not to be neglected our long term relationship and proven reliability.”
The Award for Best Overall Achieving Gold Partner was handed to the Italian Channel Partner ERREUNO, Advantech’s long time Certified & Focus Channel Partner. ERREUNO is dedicated to the Industrial Automation market with a strong market knowledge and focus combined with a strong local technical support. "Thanks to ERREUNO’s close relationship with their customers and the excellent customer service, we have successfully grown during the last year and we are still growing. We have also generated new business from the emerging market Power & Energy and we will continue to do more." said Roberto Riccardi, CEO of ERREUNO.
The Award for Best Overall Performing European Channel Certified Partner was handed to the UK Channel Partner ECA Services. During the past year, ECA has successfully grown both their traditional SME industrial & telecom customer base and business, in the healthcare sector which has contributed vastly to Advantech’s business. “The Advantech product range allows us to concentrate on more vertical market segments and offers us a solid base for growth and trend matching solutions, like the internet of things, or newest CPU technology from Advantech partners like Intel, AMD and Microsoft” concluded Simon White, ECA sales manager, when he proudly received the award.
