element14 (formerly Farnell), the first electronic component distributor that fuses commerce and community, is proud to be the recipient of the ‘FY2011 ASEAN Channels Growth Award’ from Tektronix. This accolade acknowledges element14’s continuous success in acquiring new customers, increasing revenue growth and expanding Tektronix’s profile in the region.
“element14 is honoured to receive this award as it acknowledges our dedication to provide an effective distribution model for our business partners,” says William Chong, Regional Director of Supplier Marketing, element14, Asia Pacific. “We hope that our productive partnership will continue to benefit engineers in overcoming the evolving challenges in the industry by using our best-in-class solutions and value added propositions.”
element14 offers a community for electronic design engineers with its strong social media and web presence. The element14 Community currently has more than 78,000 members, and also leverages popular social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, to engage its members.
In addition, element14’s powerful e-commerce engine provides a convenient, one-stop site for electronic system design, maintenance and repair engineers to browse and buy Tektronix products for their use. This addresses engineers’ challenges of doing their work more efficiently due to ever-increasing competition and shorter product life cycles.
“Tekronix continues to expand our customer reach in the Asean region through different sales channels. element14 adds value to the selling process while more customers source our test instruments online and also need fast dispatch,” says Jasper Ang, General Manager, ASEAN, Tektronix. “We will continue to work with element14 to bring Tektronix products to a wider spectrum of customers to meet their expectation of operational excellence and solve their design challenges.”
