BrandAlliance®, an Essent® promotional products software customer since 2013, has been named the top distributor in Canada.
The Promotional Products Professionals of Canada (PPPC) named BrandAlliance the National Distributor of the Year on January 28, 2015, at the 35th Annual Image Awards Ceremony in Toronto.
"Essent always feels proud when one of its partners is recognized as a leader in the industry, and we congratulate BrandAlliance on receiving this highly prestigious recognition as the top promotional products distributor in an entire nation,” Essent President & CEO Eric Alessi said.
BrandAlliance, who won the award for its professionalism, creativity, pro-active selling and effective business management, uses the Essent Compass™ Business Management System.
"And we’re pleased that the National Distributor of the Year Award recognizes effective business management as one of the core reasons behind BrandAlliance’s great success, since Essent solutions are engineered to enhance business management,” added Bryan Sheaffer, Essent Vice President of Sales.
The one and only fully-integrated business management solution for the promotional products industry, Compass combines every part of the sales pipeline into one comprehensive, fully-integrated, automated system to deliver business efficiency for distributors, decorators, and suppliers.
"This award is about the fantastic relationships that we have built with our Authentic Partners (suppliers) and how those relationships are mutually beneficial for growth. Without our partners’ continued support and commitment to excellence, this award would not be possible,” BrandAlliance President Nick Thompson said
BrandAlliance, which uses the Essent SiteBuilder™ website creation platform in addition to Compass, also received 10 Image Awards and two Momentum Awards at the ceremony.
