Delivering Added Value to Channel Partners

PEAC Solutions received the “Distribution Channel Management Champion” award for their engagement with business technology provider, Konica-Minolta Business Solutions UK. The award recognises an asset finance lessor who is providing best in class products and services that cover the entire value chain and support business growth.


The Leasing Life awards jury noted, “The ability to properly engage, integrate and support a distribution channel is a key success factor, particularly within OEM programs where sales are largely done through indirect channels. The jury considered a variety of elements, including online capabilities, integrated digital tools, valued-added products and marketing support programs, which have contributed to business growth and increased satisfaction for all parties. Within that context, the entry put forth by PEAC Solutions provided clear evidence and testimonials to merit their recognition for this award.”


Alexia Mann, Divisional Head of Sales, PEAC Solutions UK, accepted the award and commented on the company’s engagement with Konica-Minolta. “We are delighted to receive this award from Leasing Life, which not only recognises the value-added products and services of PEAC Solutions, but also our long-standing collaboration with Konica-Minolta and their many dealers and customers in the UK. This award is possible because they continue to place their trust and business with PEAC Solutions.”
