Arkansas distributor selected by dealer channel for the second year in a row

Recognition from the channel is greatly appreciated and well deserved and as long as our partners allow us to be in the trenches with them, we will be.

ACDI, a leading distributor of PaperCut print management software in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America, was awarded The Frank Award for Best Software and Services Provider at The Cannata Report’s 2017 Annual Awards & Charities Dinner in Morristown, Thursday, November 2. This year marks the third presentation of the award and the second year in a row that ACDI has earned the honor since its inception in 2015.

Selected by respondents to The Cannata Report’s annual dealer survey, the prestigious award recognizes the leading supplier of solutions in the imaging industry. Having been in the industry for over 20 years, ACDI has focused on leveraging best-in-class software solutions such as PaperCut MF, PrinterOn and proprietary hardware to significantly increase sales revenues for partners in the dealer channel.

“While essential to the evolution and sustainability of our industry, integrating software into a sale and truly capitalizing on it remains a challenge for many dealers. However, ACDI has come through for many of them,” says CJ Cannata, EVP and Publisher of The Cannata Report. “While dealers responding to our annual survey cumulatively represent dozens and dozens of software providers, one company once again stood out when we asked dealers to identify who offers the best products, service and support.”

ACDI President Josh Lane believes, “Channel partners deserve products delivered with purpose. Many people on our team work endlessly to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations with the goal of inspiring long-term relationships. With that in mind, we continually evaluate our systems, applications, processes, and team to create an exceptional sales and support experience. Our partners are too important and valuable not to. Recognition from the channel is greatly appreciated and well deserved and as long as our partners allow us to be in the trenches with them, we will be.”

Matt Bennett, ACDI Vice President of Sales, adds, “We strive to be better today than yesterday, and accepting this award, at least for me, means we did that - today. Then there’s always tomorrow with new challenges. We meet them head on by adjusting our processes and adding to our sales, support, development and marketing teams where necessary. ACDI is very fortunate to work with great partners, and if we all remember to keep the customer’s needs in the forefront and strive to exceed them, good things happen. We are all better for it today than yesterday.”
