Gardner, Kansas —DistributorCentral was awarded three prestigious Promotional Product Association International (PPAI) Pyramid Awards during an awards ceremony in conjunction with the 2019 PPAI Expo.

The first award was a Silver Pyramid Award in a marketing category for branding.  This category recognizes PPAI members for their creative, insightful, and effective branding activities that convey information about their own company’s identity, products, or services to customers and prospects. DistributorCentral’s winning entry was the effective rebranding of the company’s logo, which offered an updated logo and fresh tech look while eliminating outdated and confusing imagery for a cleaner message and a more vibrant brand story.

The second award was a Silver Pyramid Award in a technology category for website content/functionality.  This category recognizes PPAI members who have developed creative and effective websites through use of images, content relevance to the intended audience, ease of use, and creative delivery.  DistributorCentral’s winning entry was for their own company website, built on its own mobile-responsive platform developed for their customers’ websites.  DistributorCentral’s website showcases the flexibility of the website builder with special emphasis on website customization.

The third award was a Silver Pyramid Award in a technology category for video content.  This category recognizes PPAI members for their creative development of a single video product along with the effective delivery of content via established platforms.  DistributorCentral’s winning video is intended to education the industry on PromoStandards, the history and need for PromoStandards, and how DistributorCentral supports the PromoStandards initiatives and other integrations with suppliers, distributors, and other service providers.
