Kodak Alaris has recognised eight partners from the Europe, Africa and Middle East, EMEA, region in its annual Partner of the Year awards. The awards are an integral part of the global information capture leader’s annual Partner Summit, which this year was held as a virtual event due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Kodak Alaris Partner Awards acknowledge partners who have demonstrated excellent growth, engagement, innovation, and implementation of customer-centric solutions based on Kodak Alaris’ technology and services portfolio. The finalists and winners were chosen based on their commitment to customers, investment in solutions from Kodak Alaris, year on year revenue and growth trajectory, as well as successful joint wins over the past year.
Spigraph, Benelux was named Top Value Added Distributor; the company has collaborated closely with the Kodak Alaris sales team and continued to drive high market share in the region. Having delivered significant revenue growth in FY20, long-standing partner ALOS, a system provider of capture and Enterprise Content Management solutions in German-speaking countries, secured the Top Performing Partner accolade.
Kodak Alaris’ complete hardware, software and services offering, was won by e-das, Germany. Pitney Bowes UK scooped the Top Strategic Partner award. The partnership between the two companies is a relatively new one. Pitney Bowes has very quickly integrated Kodak Alaris into its solutions portfolio, rapidly growing the business and is driving new opportunities, particularly within the digital mailroom. In the service category, Restore Digital UK won the 2020 Service Partner Large Deal award, and the Service Partner Loyalty award was presented to Scanfabrik KG.
A Special Award went to Wietec in Israel celebrating its successes over the past 12 months, most notably winning three major tenders to deliver election solutions despite tough competition. And Dubai-based distributor Rookie Ninja, was the first recipient of the Service Partner Start-up award which was designed to recognise a partner that has built a successful service business from scratch.
“Kodak Alaris has a market-leading partner network and I am delighted to formally recognise our highest performing partners who continue to deliver added value to our joint customers, helping them to transform their and their clients’ businesses,” said Gerry Kelliher, Managing Director, EMEA Region, Alaris division of Kodak Alaris. “This year’s winners stand out by delivering the expertise organisations need to automate business processes, to maximise productivity and drive growth in increasingly complex business environments.”
