It’s a virtual sensation! DistributorCentral users take to Technologo

Only two weeks into having the opportunity to test drive virtual sample functionality, DistributorCentral users have put the pedal to the metal. Already more than 5,500 virtual product samples have been created since distributors were given the capability to do so. It’s the result of a promotional offering of the Technologo virtual sampling service being integrated into DC-hosted websites.

“We looked at this as an opportunity for DC users to use virtual sampling technology when presenting their products to buyers,” said Jason Nokes, President of DistributorCentral. “They’re obviously making good use of one of the premier 3D virtual sampling technology services in the industry.”

Technologo pioneered the development of sophisticated user-friendly virtual sample tools and now serves many of the promotional product industry’s leading suppliers and distributors. DC-hosted URL addresses have been enabled to use Technologo virtual sample tools at no charge through September 8. Those who opt to subscribe to Technologo services during the promotion will receive a month of virtual samples capabilities at no charge.

“DC-hosted website users will be able to experience the capabilities of realistic virtual samples in real time,” said Mike Betts, President of Technologo. “We make it easier to set up personalized presentation materials for their clients, who in turn are in a better position to make purchase decisions.”

Tiffany Tarr receives PPB Magazine honors

Tiffany TarThere’s a Rising Star within DistributorCentral.

Tiffany Tar, Vice President of Sales, was one of 12 up-and-coming industry pros selected as one of PPB Magazine’s Rising Stars. The annual recognition program seeks out and spotlights the promotional product industry’s budding leaders for achievement within their companies, industry and community involvement, strong initiative and leadership potential.

PPB started the program in 2010 with an inaugural selection of Rising Stars and since that time the program has become one of the most sought-after recognitions in the industry. More than 50 nominations were received for this year’s award.

Tiffany has been with DistributorCentral since 2007. Here’s what DC President Jason Nokes had to say about Tiffany as part of the Rising Star nomination process: “Tiffany was the first member of our sales staff who took the tie to dig into what she would be selling. She learned how the software worked, figured out how it could benefit our customers and actually used the software to build websites, process orders and search before she ever pitched her first customer. Under her guidance, sales have skyrocketed during her career at DC. We believe we have yet to see the full impact of Tiffany’s efforts in this industry.”

The Rising Star awards were presented during recognition ceremonies at the recent PPAI North American Leadership Conference in Boston. More information about Tiffany and each of this year’s honorees is included in PPB’s August print and online issues.
