Xerox was highly commended in this category
Canon bagged this year’s Printing & Consumables Vendor of the Year award at the Channel Middle East Awards 2019 for offering added value to customers from market insights and business development services to hardware, software and support, to help deliver high-quality digital print services. Combining extensive research in the print sector and direct conversations with customers, Canon’s products and services meet the latest requirements of minimising costs and maximising value of investments.
“We are delighted to win this award and see this win as a recognition of all the efforts and investment that Canon has put into the region, especially being awarded by Channel Middle East makes us even more proud. The region is going through a number of changes which has brought in both challenges and opportunities for the channel. While there still remains uncertainty in the market, we are sure that Canon will leverage the new prospects in the market and build profitable business that favours both partners and customers,” said Khaled Antoun, General Manager, Canon Emirates.
In 2018 Canon conducted regional events to increase brand awareness and help partners in lead generation. Canon’s ‘Education for Life’ roadshow was launched in Dubai and Abu Dhabi in early 2018, followed by Riyadh, Amman and Kuwait City, in order to demonstrate the benefits of digitally-enabled learning environments. In September 2018, Canon revamped its partner channel program, providing partners with clear benefits across new value propositions to enable growth.
