Distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC) recently won the “Distributor of the year SMB Southern Africa” award at APC by Schneider Electric’s Middle East and Africa distributor’s conference, held in Manila, Philippines. In addition, DCC also came home with APC by Schneider Electric’s Best Business Development Partner of the year accolade for a second year in a row.
These honours were awarded to DCC for respectively selling the most APC by Schneider Electric products in the SMB reseller field; and for recruiting and retaining the most partners in 2012.
Says Lenard de Bruin, APC by Schneider Electric product specialist at DCC, on winning these two awards: “Being recognised for outstanding performance in both these fields is a great reward and motivation for the hard work that DCC’s focused APC by Schneider Electric team has put in over the past year.”
“DCC has been an APC by Schneider Electric distributor since 2004. APC by Schneider Electric’s focus is on reseller development and the Channel Partner Programme, and DCC has actively held training seminars as well as appointed and certified resellers into this programme.” says Paolo Miglietta, vice president: IT Business at Schneider Electric South Africa.
This annual conference, hosted by APC by Schneider Electric, a global leader in integrated critical power and cooling services, provides all their Southern African distributors with updates on forthcoming products, services and logistical changes, as well as giving the delegates insight into the inner workings of their assembly lines and processes.
Says Robert Brandt, UPS and infrastructure product specialist at DCC, “We will continue to strive to achieve excellence with APC by Schneider Electric’s product range. The opportunities are plentiful as the market is perpetually looking towards technology that delivers energy efficiency and most importantly reliability.”
