I’m excited to announce that the nomination period is open for MDM’s 2019 Digital Innovator Awards. It is one of several MDM Innovation Awards we are launching this year to identify and acknowledge companies in wholesale distribution that have built competitive advantage in creative ways.
The 2019 MDM Digital Innovator Award will recognize and celebrate up to 10 digital innovators across a range of technology applications who have advanced their operational excellence in the ways they have leveraged technology.
There are no predefined submission categories. Not sure where to start? Innovation areas include:
- Successful e-commerce initiatives;
- High return on internet-based technologies and overall web investment;
- Growth in internal operating efficiencies;
- Improvement of downstream customer engagement or workflow integration;
- Improvement of upstream supply-chain productivity;
- Superior B2B-focused capabilities that differentiate from consumer shopping needs;
- Ability to overcome “channel shift” from omnichannel sales gone online;
- Any digitally-driven strategy that is moving your company forward.
Nominations are judged by an independent panel of industry thought leaders and MDM staff. Winners of the MDM Digital Innovator Award will be honored at MDM’s Digital Distributor Summit, June 18-20 in Denver.
Your creativity and hard work deserve to be recognized. Nominate your company or a channel partner who has gone above and beyond the norm of leveraging technology. It only takes a few minutes, filling out this brief form.
The award winners be prominently featured in MDM Premium throughout May and company representatives invited to receive their awards at MDM’s Digital Distributor Summit, June 18-20, in Denver. Winners will receive a free registration for one delegate to a powerful gathering of distribution technology thought leaders — a $1,500 value.
Why a Digital Innovator Award?
With the explosive growth of Amazon Business and new digital models in distribution, digital innovation is becoming an increasingly important competitive asset for distributors. We feel strongly that there is no clear benchmarking of digital excellence in distribution, and that an awards program can focus attention on the digital leaders, and their case studies can help elevate the industry.
Stay tuned over the coming months as MDM unveils further awards to round out our Innovation Awards series. Meanwhile, be sure to submit your Digital Innovator Award nominations HERE. If you have any questions, please contact MDM Editor in Chief Elizabeth Galentine.
