The Comms Dealer Sales and Marketing Awards 2020 give ICT channel businesses a unique opportunity to acknowledge the skill, determination and success of their sales and marketing teams.
Specifically aimed at teams rather than individuals, this year the judges have recognised the hard work and determination shown by our small but might team as Boxx are finalists in 3 of the small to medium business categories:
- Sales Team of the Year
- Marketing Team of the Year
- Sales Support Team of the Year
It’s been a challenging year all-round but these awards are a reflection of achievements up until March 2020, just before COVID hit. Achievements that specifically stood out for us here at Boxx during this period include:
Firstly, our work with Milton Keynes University Hospital (MKUH). At the end of 2019, we deployed a record-breaking 5Gbps connectivity solution to the acute local hospital, followed up with a further two 5Gbps diverse carrier connections in March 2020, just at the beginning of the first UK lockdown. This total 15Gbps bandwidth has enabled MKUH to not only operate more effectively throughout the pandemic and improve patient care, but also to continue with their digital transformation plans, despite the global crisis.
Secondly, the management team here at Boxx have completely transformed their sales and marketing strategy over the last 2 years. We sought to reposition ourselves from serving just the smaller end of the SME market, towards mid-market businesses and enterprise organisations. This work has led us to become strategic business partners for companies such as Headlam Group – Europe’s leading distributor of floor coverings.
And finally, none of this would be possible without the combined efforts of our specialist Service Delivery Team who have worked tirelessly this year to support one another and build a culture where everyone is empowered to ‘think outside the Boxx’, enabling our service to stand out from the crowd.
These awards, like many events, were due to take place in the summer, only to be postponed in the hope of being able to take place in December. Obviously COVID-19 had other plans and in light of the current restrictions, the event will take place virtually and streamed on 10th December.
So Team Boxx will be watching live from the comfort of their own homes, enjoying the gift hamper of goodies and celebrating the successes across an industry which has this year, proved more critical to business than ever before.
