Office Power has won two ECMOD Awards for ‘Best Exploitation of Technology’ for the third year running and the‘Office & Business Supplies’ award for the second time.
The Best Exploitation of Technology (sales up to £25m – B2B) category was won by Office Power for its Dynamic Pricing tool, introduced to help dealers overcome the challenges associated with competing in a price sensitive market and protecting their profitability.
Mike Gibbard, Office Power CTO said, “our Dynamic Pricing tool has revolutionised the way office supplies dealers price their products. The tool has allowed them to have full visibility of how their margin and profitability could be affected with various changes, giving them the opportunity to make an informed decision about their pricing strategies. They now can protect their margin
and be in full control of their business.”
The second award was for Office and Business Supplies, which the team also won in 2017. Office Power gives local office supplies dealers access to industry-leading technology and support, allowing them to become more efficient, profitable and free up time to grow their businesses. By using the Office Power platform and support, its dealer partners have achieved a 14 per cent net growth rate in an industry that declined by 2 per cent in 2017.
Stylus Stationers, one of Office Power’s dealer partners said, “Office Power enables us to run our entire business from one platform. It is revolutionary. We don’t need any other back office systems. Office Power gave me back my reign of my company and has already proved to me that this has been the best decision I have ever made in the 32 years of my career.”
