Following up the announcement of Audiosales srl (Italy) as its Distributor of the Year for 2019 during the DirectOut INSIDER event, the company has also highlighted the performances of tm stagetec systems (Australia) with the Rookie of the Year award and Lawo BVBA (Netherlands) with the PRODIGY of the Year award.
Audiosales, one of DirectOut’s longest standing distributors, received Distributor of the Year honors for the first time. “Our cooperation with Audiosales has constantly developed over the past 10 years and we appreciate Audiosales’ professional performance in service and support across the pro audio and broadcast segments in Italy,” states Jan Ehrlich, CEO of DirectOut, “It’s another success story and this award expresses a well-deserved acknowledgement for their great job.’
Marco Alterini, sales director of Audiosales: ‘Receiving this award is of great satisfaction for us, not only because of a great year, but also because it is the tangible proof of what kind of work the entire team has been able to keep up during the years. Audiosales is extremely happy about the relationship with DirectOut, not only because the products offer high quality and reliability, but also because the entire pre- and post-sales service provided by the company matches the same high expectations.’
Meanwhile, tm stagetec systems (TMS) received Rookie of the Year for outstanding sales performance. Ehrlich resumes, ‘Since the end of 2018 our collaboration with tm stagetec system is a success story in time lapse speed. Building on our good reputation in the Australian broadcast market Treva and Mark took the opportunity and gained clients in further segments of big interest for DirectOut. Day after day we are more and more convinced that we found the perfect partner for Australia and New Zealand.’
Mark Lownds, General Manager of TMS: ‘We’re very excited and appreciative to receive this award. The team at tm stagetec systems has worked closely with those at DirectOut over the last year and we have developed great working relationships. We are all very much looking forward to continuing to develop the cooperative partnership between tm stagetec systems and DirectOut. Our team will also keep working to ensure DirectOut products continue to solve many of our customers’ problems.’
Managing Director Treva Head adds, ‘DirectOut is a perfect fit for us at tm stagetec systems and the last year has proved this. Both the philosophy of the products and the diverse range they cover has helped us better serve our customers in both broadcast and pro-audio markets. We are very excited to continue to represent DirectOut and further build their reputation in the Australian market. We thank DirectOut for this recognition and look forward to the years to come.’
LAWO BVBA (formerly known as LDM systems) is noted as the most thriving DirectOut distribution partner in introducing the PRODIGY Series of modular converters and processors to the market.
Mark Tito, sales director and co-owner of the company: ‘Our market has always been fond of the products of DirectOut. Small tools that carried out their specialized task effortlessly and reliably. And then the PRODIGY was introduced and we had a comprehensive tool, composed of all the single tools one would ever want — like a Swiss army knife. We’re more than happy with the PRODIGY of the Year award, and maybe even more so with the PRODIGY-family itself’.
Ehrlich concludess: ‘The team of LAWO BVBA is extremely skilled and knows our products very well, and this has always been the fundament for our close cooperation. Mark and his colleagues are carrying a personal and close relationship with their clients. Their mindset of continuously musing about easing the clients’ daily work by applying DirectOut solutions is a key to their success. The outstanding achievements introducing the PRODIGY Series are proof of concept for both Lawo BVA and DirectOut.’
