The ASCII Group Recognizes D&H As An ASCII Cup Top Contender For Distributor Of The Year

Bethesda, Maryland --- The ASCII Group, Inc. is pleased to announce that its members have selected D&H as a ‘Top Contender for the 2012 ASCII Cup for the Distributor of the Year’. The award is based on the quality of D&H’s commitment to customer service, dedication to the channel, and ways they bring more revenue to their customers’ businesses.

The ASCII Cup, The Top Contenders and Esteemed Noble Partners awards are bestowed annually to a technology company that has shown outstanding channel goodwill and a commitment to helping ASCII members grow their revenue and more effectively serve their customers.  The winner is voted upon by the ASCII membership at regional ASCII Success Summit meetings, and the Cup is awarded each year at the SMB Nation event.  D&H is the only distributor to be named among the ASCII Cup Top Contenders.

“D&H is thrilled to have been voted the 2012 ASCII Cup Distributor of the Year,” said Jeff Davis, D&H’s senior vice president of sales. “We’re a very customer-centric company, so it’s our utmost priority to deliver value and an effective business experience to our mutual resellers. This helps to validate our strategy to build a business model around the customers’ needs. We’re always proud to hear directly from ASCII’s members that our efforts are well guided.”

“On behalf of the ASCII Group community, we congratulate D&H as one of this year’s Top Contenders for the ASCII Cup. D&H deserves this type of recognition for the commitment they have shown to the SMB community throughout our long partnership,” said Doug Young, senior VP for distribution and COO of The ASCII Group.

Success Summit attendees vote for the vendors in 11 different categories: ‘Best Distribution Sales Support’, ‘Best Software Solution’, ‘Best Hardware Solution’, ‘Best New Product’, ‘Best Cloud Solution’, ‘Best Revenue Generator’, ‘Best Channel Incentive’, ‘Best Channel Program’, ‘Best Partner Commitment’, ‘Best Customer Support’, and ‘Best in Show’. The winners at each show are selected based on the votes of the solution providers, and at the end of the year the winner of the ASCII Cup is chosen based on the results at all the shows. 

D&H has won awards at four Success Summits this year for Best Distribution Sales Support:  In Boston, Orange County, Orlando, and Washington DC.
