Brampton, ON – November 9, 2015: Open Storage Solutions® Inc., a leader in providing data storage and data protection solutions in Canada and the US, announced today that they have just awarded Dell the coveted Partner of the Year for 2015. The award was presented to Dell at the Open Storage Solutions annual meeting held on November 3rd, 2015 at their head office in Brampton Ontario.

“The award for Partner of the Year is very important to our organization,” said Andrew Betterton, President and CEO of Open Storage Solutions. “We poll our entire company and have a free write-in vote.  Everyone is entitled to vote for whichever supplier they feel fits the profile.  Each department has different needs from a partner, and will interact with different people from the partners’ organizations. So, as we vote as a company, we are voting on our partners as a company, and we are very pleased to present this award to Dell this year.”
Each and every employee, from the CEO, Accounting, Sales, Support, Service, Traffic, Operations, Marketing and Logistics to the Shipper/Receiver is polled with a ballot.  They are asked to vote for their top three choices.  They are asked to vote based on a series of criteria, including, but not limited to, quality, response, support, ease of contact, etc.  Dell met all the criteria and specifically distinguished themselves in the areas of speed of response, technical expertise and deliveries.

“Dell is a company that we engage on a number of fronts, with a number of products and services,” continued Andrew Betterton.  “Our company has chosen to recognize their quality of care and response with our highest rating. We are delighted to give them this award.”

“What a great honour to be awarded Partner Of The Year again this year,” said Drew Dayman, Dell’s Channel Account Manager. “It was great that Rola Daghar, Frank Potocnik and Cathie Elias were at [the meeting] to accept the award on behalf of Dell.”
