Adva-Lite--a subsidiary of top-20 promotional products supplier Corvest and sister company to Toppers and It's All Greek To Me--has been selected as a winner in the Technical/e-Commerce category of the 2009 PPAI Web Awards competition. Adva-Lite has also received a Counselor Distributor Choice Award for Supplier of the Year: Flashlights; while sister company, It's All Greek To Me, has received a Counselor Distributor Choice Award for Supplier of the Year: Toys. The company's third subsidiary, Toppers, has been named a finalist in three Counselor Distributor Choice Awards categories for Supplier of the Year: Umbrellas, Computer Accessories and Caps and Hats.
Counselor Distributor Choice Awards winners are selected by promotional products distributors to recognize the most-valued suppliers in the promotional products industry. Adva-Lite and It's All Greek To Me are both prior Counselor Distributor Choice Awards winners, having received the same awards in 2008.
According to Catherine Pilgrim, Senior Vice President of Sales for Corvest, "We're extremely grateful that our distributor customers chose to recognize us for these awards yet again. Since all three Corvest subsidiaries moved into our new facility this past year, we've worked tirelessly to smooth out all of the wrinkles and to make Corvest the best supplier in the industry. Receiving these awards signifies that we're well on our way to achieving our end goal and it gives us the encouragement we need to continue to grow our operation. We are also excited to add a new trophy to our collection for the PPAI Web Award. We are committed to continual improvement in support of our customers."
PPAI Web Awards recognize the best websites in the promotional products industry. Adva-Lite has been awarded a silver designation in the Technical/e-Commerce category. This is Corvest's first PPAI Web Award for its new websites, launched in April of 2008.
Introducing a forward-thinking approach to promotional marketing, Corvest's websites enable end-users to place their orders with participating promotional products distributors right from the company's new sites. Promotional products distributors may register on the sites for free and verify that they'd like to be included in Corvest's Distributor Finder, which allows end-users to select a distributor by proximity or name. The company introduced two new features to its websites during the fourth quarter of 2008: an order status utility and a "chat now" interface that allows customers to interact with Corvest associates directly on the sites.
Corvest is a Counselor Top 40 Supplier, holding the number 18 position.
