Why Quality Distributors Are Key to Our Success

Vesco SolutionsOur distribution channel is pivotal in growing our market presence, acting as our outreach and our intermediaries between our internal teams and our customers, and ensuring that our solutions reach end users efficiently. By maintaining a high standard of quality, these organizations help in evangelizing the integrity and value of our brand.

By definition, a strong distributor physically has more “feet on the street” so their reach offers the possibility to address a much wider customer base, and positioning Digi International alongside adjacenct technologies like displays or sensors means their key-value add with regard to demand creation is presenting ready-baked solutions to customers.

Their reliability in delivering products on time and in optimal condition builds trust with customers, reinforcing our commitment to excellence. This trust translates into customer loyalty, which is essential for sustaining our long-term business growth.

Stocking and logistics are a huge value-added service to customers, and holding the right amount of inventory can “buffer” customers against any elasticity in lead-times e.g. during periods of component shortage. Additionally, holding “enablers” such as development kits or sample quantities on new products ensures that customers can quickly get to work on designing proof-of-concepts or pre-production runs.

Distributors that contribute to our mutual success in this way create exceptional value and trust, which are key to growth. 

Tokyo Electron Device Ltd.Additionally, the excellent customer service provided by our distributors is crucial for customer satisfaction and retention. By working with the absolute best, most reputable distributors in the industry, we know customers are in good hands. 

Distributors often serve as the first point of contact, addressing customer inquiries, concerns, and feedback. By fully understanding Digi's solutions, they can provide knowledgeable and responsive support and enhance the overall customer experience. This leads to excellent customer retention, word-of-mouth referrals, and a positive experience with the Digi brand.

And finally, high-quality distributors and channel partners play a strategic role in identifying and capitalizing on new market opportunities in regions across the globe. They possess in-depth knowledge of their local markets and customer preferences, which can inform the company's marketing and sales strategies. And the strength of their line-card in presenting solutions mean they are ideally suited to helping Digi International further penetrate growth vertical markets more effectively.

In other words, "rising waters raise all ships". When our distributors shine, we all win — especially our customers. For these reasons, we value the incredible contributions of our distribution channel, and are proud to honor our award winners!
