On behalf of the specialist magazine ChannelPartner, the independent market research institute CONTEXT surveys system houses and specialist dealers every year about their most popular manufacturers and distributors. This survey is a valuable inventory for all channel stakeholders. A total of 13 manufacturer and 5 distribution categories were classified and around 2.300 resellers were questioned. Only companies that were named by at least 50 resellers were considered in the evaluation. All shortlisted companies receive the distinction of Preferred Distributor or Preferred Vendor. The winner of a category receives the "Channel Excellence Award". Typically, category winners are announced at the Channel Excellence Awards ceremony. For known reasons, this event could not take place as usual.
The result in the special distribution segment caused great pleasure at bb-net. A total of 20 channel players made it into the ranking in the special distribution category. Bb-net was chosen as the most channel-friendly and therefore the winner of the Channel Excellence Awards 2021.
Ability to deliver, service, quality, reliability - bb-net was able to prove to its partners last year that these are not just empty lip service. In these critical times in particular, solidarity with one another is important - this also applies to the ICT channel. The award is very valuable feedback but also a great incentive to become even better and to further advance the IT refurbishing and IT remarketing industry.
