-- Burlington, MA, Nov. 3, 2011 – Northern Business Machines has been selected as a 2011 Elite Dealer by The Week in Imaging (www.theweekinimaging.com)
, an online information and news publication for resellers of imaging technology, supplies, and services.
The Elite Dealer awards have been presented annually from 1989-2009. This is the first year they’ve been presented by The Week in Imaging. The Elite Dealer Awards honor the best and the brightest in the imaging technology dealer community. This year’s Elite Dealer honorees encompass entrepreneurs, innovators, survivors, top sellers, and celebrated members of the communities they serve. These are the dealerships that provide office technology, software, and services to businesses and organizations of all sizes.
“Winners are not based on sales figures alone although many of this year’s Elite dealers are some of their manufacturer’
s best sellers,” states Scott Cullen, publisher and editor of The Week in Imaging. “The focus is on growth, innovative marketing and sales programs, community leadership, and leadership within the industry.”
Another key consideration is the work environment they provide employees and the job satisfaction that culture inspires. Involvement with the community is also important and many Elite dealers and their employees generously donate time and money to the communities in which they work.
“We firmly believe all of those are important qualities of an Elite Dealer,” adds Cullen. “It’s not any one trait, but a combination of traits that make an Elite dealer and a dealership such as Northern Business Machines truly Elite.
