Office Powers wins Direct Commerce Award 2021

Office Power wins Direct Commerce Award for the fifth time

Office Power is delighted to announce that the company has won the prestigious Direct Commerce Award for its outstanding technology and support services in the business & office supplies industry for the fifth time.

The Office & Business Supplies category was won by Office Power for its commitment, unwavering partner support and continuous development of its technology during the fallout of the pandemic. With major disruptions during the outbreak of Covid-19, agile technology and strong partnerships became increasingly important for office supplies dealers in order to continue trading and successfully come out of lockdown. By partnering with Office Power, dealers gain access to the best technology platform in the industry with flexible support services, empowering them to become more responsive to the changing needs of their customers and more successful as a result.

Over the last year, the team at Office Power have adapted its technology and services to meet new dealer needs, helping them stay relevant and be best positioned for growth in a post-pandemic world. Some of the changes included a major wholesaler switchover in 2020, launching an online dealer community, adapting their eCommerce platform to better target and service home workers and adapting their model to give dealers more control and flexibility on how they want the partnership to work overall. As a result, Office Power has become the go-to partner for office supplies dealers, enabling them to successfully trade out of the crisis and futureproof their business.

Office Power dealer, Lesley Conner from Mobile Stationery & Printing Centre said:

“Thank you to everyone at Office Power for the huge undertaking of everything that has been achieved in a very short space of time. It is testing times, but this is a great example of how people pull together. Great team, thank you.”

Office Power CEO, Simon Drakeford commented:

“We are delighted that the judges have selected Office Power as their winner in the category of Office & Business Supplies. This is our fifth time accepting a Direct Commerce Award and it’s a huge privilege to share this award with everyone at Office Power. Our team works around the clock to deliver transformative technology solutions and support for our dealers but our partnerships go beyond just business transactions, we like working in collaboration to create innovative, flexible and adaptive processes to help navigate through these challenging times.”
