Voting is officially open for the 2021 CE Pro Quest for Quality Awards, now in its 11th year. The awards recognize the people and services behind the technology… the people, not the products!
It is an award that has become synonymous with the top companies – both large and small – that cater to this market. It is an achievement that manufacturers and distributors proudly shout from the mountaintops to their integrators/clients and internal staff … every tech support, sales support, website creator, customer service rep, warehouse worker, etc. at their company helped earn the award.
Voting is officially open for the 2021 Quest for Quality Awards, so please take a few minutes of your time to recognize that tech support person, customer service rep or salesperson from your best suppliers–both manufacturers and distributors. Recognition for a job well done is something everyone deserves to receive. Voting ends February 23, 2021.
Votes are casts by the thousands (In 2020 we had 12,000 votes cast in an unprompted, open-ended questionnaires sent to subscribers and posted online.) Votes are deduped based on ISP addresses to deter potential ballot-box stuffing.
CE Pro will not be announcing Quest for Quality winners in a special email newsletter and press release on March 31, 2021. The winners will also be posted on www.cepro.com starting on that date.
In addition to the online coverage, the April 2021 print issue of CE Pro will include a feature article on the Quest for Quality winners with verbatim commentary provided by readers about the most successful programs, covering 26 total categories for manufacturers and 8 distributors. We are recognizing three winners in each category: Platinum, Gold and Silver.
We realize that the Q4Q results can often be skewed toward vendors serving multiple product categories… the more touchpoints a dealer has with a vendor, the more top-of-mind that vendor is for receiving a Q4Q vote. So, again this year we have added a “Category Kudos” award to a niche manufacturer with products only in a single product category that scored very well in the survey.
For winning companies, CE Pro is offering a special promotional opportunity in the April issue and online. Please contact your sales representative for more information.
