As part of the 2020 edition of the Distributor of the Year, broadliner Tech Data France receives 2 CONTEXT ChannelWatch awards in the logistics category as well as in the retail category.
Pascal Murciano, President of Tech Data France, comments: "in such a unique context, we are particularly proud to receive these awards from Context and our reseller partners. Logistics and retail were key points and sources of all tensions during the first containment in March. Several measures have been taken to support our partners in the best possible way. These awards reward our Lean strategy implemented since the end of 2019, as well as the soundness of our InTouch platform. These prizes reward the incredible work of each of our employees who, thanks to their constant efforts and their high level of involvement at all levels, have made it possible to keep our partners' activities afloat."
Howard Davies, CEO and co-founder of CONTEXT, says: "we are delighted to see Tech Data France win the "Best Logistics Distributor" and "Best Retail Distributor" awards from Context ChannelWatch. Logistics as well as retail are, even more so in the current context, of crucial importance in a sector where the role of distributors is essential to maintain the activity of resellers. These awards underline Tech Data's expertise in this area, making it one of the strengths of its relationship with its reseller partners."
CONTEXT ChannelWatch is one of the world's largest online surveys of IT resellers. Each year it provides a better understanding of the behaviour, opinions and attitudes of a panel of over 7,000 IT resellers each year. In France, nearly 600 resellers took part in the survey this year. As part of the survey, resellers in each country nominate the distributors they work with for the CONTEXT ChannelWatch Distributor of the Year award.
