Digital ID, the Stockport-based ID card Company have been awarded the prestigious “Global Dealer Of The Year” award from Magicard, the UK’s largest ID Card Printer manufacturer.
The award looks specifically at the efforts and achievements by each of their dealers worldwide focusing specifically on sales growth, customer service and marketing, with Digital ID the stand out winner in all 3 categories.
Digital ID became an official Magicard distributor in March 2016; to be named global dealer of the year with just 9 full months trading is unprecedented.
Jonathan Fell, Managing Director of Digital ID, said “To be recognised as the global dealer of the year for 2016 is an incredible achievement but it wouldn’t have been possible without our fantastic dealer network. I would also like to thank the guys at Magicard and especially to Phil Reynolds for all his hard work. I look forward to helping Magicard deliver their exciting new products over the coming years.”
2016 trading figures compared to 2015 have seen a 138% increase in ribbon sales, alongside a 515% growth in printer sales, with over 2,000 printer units being distributed in 2016.
Phil Reynolds, European sales director for Magicard, commented “Congratulations to Digital ID, they have had an outstanding year. To accomplish what they have in the first year of the partnership has taken a huge amount of work and dedication.
“They have done a fantastic job promoting the product through the channels, opening up new customers and creating exceptional brand marketing like the Magicard sample card packs that each of their customers can receive.
“Digital ID has set the bar high, but I’m sure that they will carry on supporting and promoting Magicard like they have and surpass themselves this coming year. I look forward to growing the partnership in 2017.”
