Do you remember Gwyneth Paltrow’s three-minute hiccup engulfed award speech? Kanye West’s stage invasion of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 VMA’s? And of course, let’s not forget the elephant in the award room, the La La Land and Moonlight fiasco at this year’s Academy Awards.
If you work with Analox, you could be planning your own winner’s acceptance speech after the launch of our annual awards, the ASTars.
We’ve decided that our sales channels deserve recognition for the collaborative work they do to promote Analox products. The ASTars recognise our distributors, partners and stockists for their work in promoting and integrating their Analox product lines throughout 2016.
We pride ourselves on partnering with reputable, proactive and successful partners who not only understand our products and servicing requirements but also the Analox brand and the industries we serve.
The winners were based on evidence adhering to certain criteria for each category and were voted for by Analox staff. The Managing Director’s Choice for Services to AST Sales Award was decided by our MD, Mark Lewis. We have notified all our winners and they will receive a bespoke ASTars logo to use on their website and literature plus an award to commemorate the accolade.
There were four categories up for grabs this year which were; AST Sales Channel of the Year, AST New Sales Channel of the Year, AST Best Sales Channel Website as well as the AST Managing Director’s Choice for Services to AST Sales Award.
We’re proud to announce the winners for 2016 were…
AST Sales Channel of the year
This award is based on the sales channel which has demonstrated the most forward thinking attitude along with increasing sales and marketing activity, sales volume and has shown a remarkable dedication to promoting the Analox brand.
Why they won
We recognize Roberts Oxygen because their growth has been over 320%. Through many conversations with the various reps at their locations we see 2017 being a year where we partner together with even more growth potential.
AST New Sales Channel of the year
We are always looking for like minded sales channels globally and have recruited more than 25 new channels in 2016 alone. This award recognises the one new sales channel which has already demonstrated significant sales and marketing prowess in their chosen markets and shows signs of becoming a significant partner for many years to come.
Why they won
They’ve grown our Ax60+ business at a very high rate. We’re excited to see where 2017 will take AST with Bonny Food Service Products.
AST Best Sales Channel Website
As online sales and marketing of Analox products increases in popularity year on year, our sales channel’s website becomes more and more important. This award recognises a partner who prominently promotes the Analox brand in a well designed, high ranking, easy to navigate website.
Why they won
The new website has been a great effort, mainly from their Marketing Coordinator, Emily. It is clean, easy to use and eye-catching. Gem have listed our products well and they can now use their website as a great selling tool for 2017.
