There’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.
LONG BEACH, Cal. (August 6) – Two cutting-edge web technology-oriented service providers are making virtual sample functionality available to over 10,000 websites within the promotional products industry.
As part of a promotional offering, virtual sampling capabilities as provided by Technologo are being integrated into all websites as hosted by DistributorCentral, the industry’s only free and open centralized product database. Technologo provides unique and advanced virtual sample technology allowing real-time presentation of logos and messaging on products regardless of shape, color, texture or imprinting.
Announcement of the collaborative initiative was made this week in Long Beach at the annual Specialty Advertising Association of California (SAAC) Show.
“Technologo’s virtual sampling tools fit seamlessly into DC-hosted websites of both suppliers and distributors,” said Jason Nokes, President of DistributorCentral. “We’re confident our customers who rely on DC for website hosting will quickly discover the numerous benefits and increased sales associated with the ability to create online virtual samples for their respective customers.”
From August 11 thru September 8, DC-hosted URL addresses will be enabled to use Technologo virtual sample tools at no charge. Those who opt to subscribe to Technologo services during that four-week timeframe will receive another month of virtual samples capabilities at no charge.
Mike Betts, President of Technologo, said the integration of an enhanced virtual samples tool into DistributorCentral’s website platforms will allow suppliers and distributors to “test drive” a premium virtual tool.
“DC-hosted website users will be able to experience the capabilities of realistic virtual samples in real time,” Betts said. “Technologo makes it easier to set up personalized presentation materials for their clients, who in turn are in a better position to make purchase decisions.”
