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 Las Vegas, Nevada. There they received the 2013 Gold Vendor of Excellence Award for Technology Distributor of the Year.
RSPA is the only association dedicated to the retail technology industry with over 1,300 members consisting of resellers, vendors, distributors, consultants, and service providers. Each year members of RSPA vote in six categories to identify the top vendors and distributors in the channel. This recognition is unique to the retail technology industry because it is the only award in which resellers help to determine the recipient.
“BlueStar was thrilled to be recognized as the RSPA’s Technology Distributor of the Year,” said Steve Cuntz, BlueStar’s President and CEO. “We appreciate the efforts of the association’s members, its board of directors, and the continuing leadership of Joe Finizio to educate, promote and create standards of excellence in the retail community.”
Joe Finizio, President and CEO of RSPA, also spoke about BlueStar’s achievement,“Each year RSPA’s Vendor of Excellence Awards are a medium for Technology Resellers to recognize the best companies in the Retail Technology Industry. BlueStar’s industry leadership and commitment to the Reseller Channel most certainly paved the way to receiving a well-deserved Gold Vendor of Excellence Award.”
