BlueStar Is Repeat Winner Of Top Distributor Award

RSPA members vote to award BlueStar top honors with "The Gold Award for Technology Distributor"

BlueStar, a leading global distributor of ADC, Mobility, Point-of-Sale, RFID, Digital Signage, and Security technology solutions, recently attended the Retail Solutions Providers Association (RSPA) RetailNOW conference in Orlando, FL, and was honored with "The Gold Award for Technology Distributor" for the second year in a row by the RSPA reseller members.

The RSPA is the only association dedicated to the retail technology industry, and includes resellers, hardware manufacturers, software developers, consultants, finance companies, and distributors. The "Distributor of the Year" is chosen by resellers from a competitive field of contenders.

Mark Fraker, Vice President of Marketing for the Kentucky-based winner, was quick to give credit to the BlueStar Team. "This award is the culmination of the entire BlueStar Team's exceptional performance. The award belongs to everyone who went beyond what was expected," he said. "It's for the ones who took a few additional minutes to recheck the paperwork, or stayed late to answer all of our partners' questions, or who double checked every FedEx label on every order they packed and shipped."

We've received a number of accolades every year, but the "Distributor of the Year" from RSPA is especially meaningful to us," Fraker concluded. "Our customers chose us for this honor, and we will continue to do everything possible to live up to it."

In addition to the award announcement, the RSPA RetailNOW conference featured BlueStar's wide array of advanced point-of-sale and retail technology solutions, highlighting mPOS. BlueStar exhibited the most mPOS solutions on every OS including Android, iOS, and Microsoft. "Retail and POS solutions are a huge part of our business at BlueStar," explained Dean Reverman, BlueStar's Global Marketing Manager. "We look forward to participating in RetailNOW every year and we're proud to be members of RSPA, the premiere trade organization for POS technology. BlueStar will continue to help our partners grow their businesses through retail innovations."
