Atlas Computer won in the consumables business category, while Arms Computer walked away with the mid-high and colour Printer award.
"Canon is a leader in the imaging and business solutions category in terms of technology, performance and range. This success has been built on many factors, including our product range, the service we offer, and most importantly, our ongoing programme for the development of channel partners and dealers in the Sultanate. The Canon Channel Partner programme seeks to continuously recognise the contribution of key players and team members of the Oman's IT dealer channel who contribute to our success," said Hendrik Verbrugghe, marketing director, Canon Middle East.
"The partner programme is an ideal platform to understand the needs of our channel partners and further consolidate our presence in the market. We want to show them that we are their partners in every true sense of the word, and we will continue to support them in all their business endeavours. Besides, such events are also important to help everybody gain a greater understanding of the state-of-the-art technology and the latest innovations taking place within the Canon office imaging product portfolio," added Verbrugghe.
"The demand for cost effective all-in-one office inkjet printers have significantly increased within the segment of home office users in Oman. We are happy to cater to this growing segment and take forward Canon's vision of providing cutting-edge technology to business and home-office users," said Dr Muthanna Al Durrah, CEO, GENETCO, a Canon distribution partner in Oman.
Al Durrah said Canon has always been committed to developing its channel relations in the Sultanate and incentive programmes such as this enable us to work closely with our channel partners. "We are very pleased with response for the debut Canon Business Awards in Oman and look forward to build on this success," he added.
The Canon Partner Programme was organised in co-ordination with GENETCO, Canon's authorised distributor in Oman. The programme is an initiative by Canon Middle East to engage more with channel partners and strengthen relationships with end-user clients across the Sultanate. The initiative, which launched in 2014, saw 19 IT dealers in the Sultanate register for the channel partner programme.
