Officeworks General Manger Merchandise, Toby Watson, explained, “D-Link is a worthy winner of this top award because over the last 12 months they have played a leading role in curating the extra-large range for our biggest store in Mentone, as well as aligning it with the Small Business Networking Hub.
Officeworks judging panel also accredited D-Link with supporting the development, testing and final execution of its Networking Product Selector and Buying Guide, making it easier for customers to learn about and shop the range, along with providing input into their Stores Product Learning Pathway Module – looking at the training content from both a Technical and Customer Facing point of view for the retailers’ team members.
Watson added, “D-Link ANZ have made a significant contribution to our efforts in increasing the quality of educational content online. They also actively looked to align their measurement of fill rates with us and invested in forward weeks’ of supply to deliver a fill rate over 98% for the year. They have even participated in our next Range Review Video talking about the networking category evolution, and how we can help customers in store -a first for Officeworks…”
D-Link ANZ MD Graeme Reardon said, “We are delighted and extremely proud to have won the Officeworks Partner of the Year Award – Growth award. It’s been a great year for D-Link and Officeworks and we look forward to many more successful years in partnership together.”
