GARDNER, Kansas (November 8, 2016) – DistributorCentral (PPAI: 220404 | UPIC: DC) has been chosen as a finalist in the 2017 PPAI Technology Award Competition in three categories: Mobile Apps/Mobile Websites, Web Content/Functionality and Social Media.
Mobile Website – The DistributorCentral website is aimed at both current and prospective distributor and supplier users. The site was built internally on our own new, fully-responsive platform which leverages the powerful tools available in DistributorCentral’s new responsive web builder. The website is responsive in order to adjust to any device to provide our mobile visitors a productive and pleasant browsing experience.
Web Content/Functionality – DistributorCentral launched a new website in 2016 built entirely with the same tools offered free to every distributor in the industry. The fully-responsive website was redesigned to give prospective members a better picture of their service offerings and show distributors and suppliers how they can save time and money in their businesses by leveraging DistributorCentral’s suite of technology tools.
Social Media – The Facebook social media campaign, “Come in and create a new Responsive Website for Free” was aimed at both current and prospective distributor and supplier users that were in need of a new or updated company website. Using a mix of content, the campaign drove attendees to DistributorCentral’s tradeshow booths where distributors created new websites on the spot using their easy website wizard creation tool.
“DistributorCentral is honored to be selected as a finalist in the 2017 PPAI Technology awards. Our talented team has worked hard to build one of the industry’s most powerful technology platforms and teach industry distributors and suppliers how to use the platform to save them time and money. To also see our customer-focused marketing and social media initiatives be recognized as part of these awards is truly an honor,” said David Shultz, Vice President of Operations.
As a finalist, DistributorCentral will be recognized at the 2017 PPAI Awards Block Party on January 10th, during the PPAI Expo in Las Vegas.
