ScanSource POS and Barcode, the pan-European value-added distributor of automatic data collection, POS and mobility solutions, has been named at recent regional Motorola partner events Mobility Distributor of the Year in the UK and Wireless Distributor of the Year for Southern Europe for 2012.
ScanSource, the largest distributor of Motorola products in Europe, won the awards in large part as a result of the work the distributor undertook in 2012 to develop Motorola's Mobility and Wireless business, as well as the high levels of service and training options the company provides.
"We've always had a very strong partnership with Motorola in Europe so we're honoured by the continued recognition we receive for our efforts," said Maurice van Rijn, Managing Director, ScanSource POS and Barcode, Europe. "Many of our reseller partners have incorporated Motorola products into their offerings, so we'd like to thank them for the trust and confidence they place in us that has enabled us to win these awards."
"The Motorola Solutions partner awards are an opportunity to recognise the best work that our channel partners deliver to customers," said Vivienne Francis, Distribution Director, Motorola Solutions EIA. "Hailing from every part of our region, winners share an exceptional ability to understand customers' needs, build relationships and deliver top-quality solutions."
"We've benefitted a great deal through our partnership with ScanSource," said Jamie Dickinson, Managing Director, Unique ID, a reseller partner of ScanSource. "The team has helped us on a number of levels, especially through their local partner events which have helped with the development of our own pan-European channel around Motorola's products. With ScanSource's support we've seen success around solutions such as our MC Store charging cabinet for Motorola's MC terminals, which simplifies the majority of mobile device installations and has therefore benefitted other Motorola partners across the continent. ScanSource is a worthy recipient of the awards."
ScanSource recently announced the launch of its Motorola Authorised Training Centre as part of its education programme ScanSource University. Under this initiative resellers are able to attend training courses on Motorola Wireless LAN technology and Mobile Computer Devices with a view to attaining the relevant certification exams required as part of Motorola's partner programme PartnerEmpower.
