GARDNER, Kansas (January 19, 2017) – DistributorCentral (PPAI: 220404 | UPIC: DC) takes home a Gold Technology Award for Mobile Apps/Mobile Website and two Silver Technology Awards for Social Media and Web Content/Functionality.
While at the PPAI Expo in Las Vegas, DistributorCentral was awarded three prestigious PPAI Technology Awards. DistributorCentral was the industry’s only service provider to win multiple PPAI Technology Awards this year.
A Gold Technology Award in the Mobile Apps/Mobile Website – Service Provider category was bestowed to DistributorCentral for their responsive, mobile-friendly website builder and hosting platform that launched in 2015. The new platform allows customers a mobile website capable of browsing, product inquiries, and electronic order placement from a mobile device. Customers can easily migrate their legacy websites to the new platform themselves at no charge.
A Silver Technology Award in the Social Media – Service Provider category was presented to DistributorCentral for using a mix of content on multiple social media channels. DistributorCentral’s campaign “Come in and create a new Responsive Website for Free” drove attendees to the tradeshow booths where distributors created websites on the spot using the proprietary, easy website creation tool.
Another Silver Technology Award was given to DistributorCentral in the Web Content/Functionality – Service Provider category for DistributorCentral’s newly launched company website in 2016, which was built with the same tools offered free to every distributor in the industry. The fully-responsive, mobile-friendly website was redesigned to give prospective members a better picture of service offerings and to show distributor and suppliers how they can save time and money in their businesses by leveraging DistributorCentral’s suite of technology tools. “By building our own company website on our new mobile-responsive website platform, it shows just how flexible the design of each website can be,” comments David Shultz, Vice President of Operations.
“Thank you to the entire DistributorCentral team for their hard work. I am proud that PPAI and the industry have acknowledged the strides we’ve made in mobile technology and making that cutting-edge technology available to our industry,” says Jason Nokes, President of DistributorCentral.
