Office Power is delighted to announce that the company has won the prestigious Direct Commerce Award for their outstanding technology and support services in the business & office supplies industry for the fifth time
The Office & Business Supplies category was won by Office Power for its commitment, unwavering partner support and continuous development of their technology during the fallout of the pandemic. With major disruptions during the outbreak of COVID-19, agile technology and strong partnerships became increasingly important for office supplies dealers in order to continue trading and successfully come out of lockdown. By partnering with Office Power, dealers gain access to the best technology platform in the industry with flexible support services, empowering them to become more responsive to the changing needs of their customers and more successful as a result.
Over the last year, the team at Office Power have adapted its technology and services to meet new dealer needs, helping them stay relevant and be best positioned for growth in the post-pandemic world. Some of the changes included a major wholesaler switchover in 2020, launching an online dealer community, adapting their e-commerce platform to better target and service home workers and adapting their model to give dealers more control and flexibility on how they want the partnership to work overall. As a result, Office Power has become the go-to partner for office supplies dealers, enabling them to successfully trade out of the crisis and futureproof their business.
One of Office Power’s dealers, Lesley Conner from Mobile Stationery & Printing Centre said: “Thank you to everyone at Office Power for the huge undertaking of everything that has been achieved in a very short space of time. It is testing times, but this is a great example of how people pull together. Great team, thank you.”

Our team works around the clock to deliver transformative technology solutions and support for our dealers but our partnerships go beyond just business transactions, we like working in collaboration to create innovative, flexible and adaptive processes to help navigate through these challenging times.”
