The MHEDA Journal - Fourth Quarter, 2016 - 24

MHEDA RECOGNITION PROGRAMS Awards can be very important to a business. Consumers at all levels are looking for credibility before making any purchase, and that includes material handling equipment. With websites such as Yelp and CitySearch, we constantly seek companies boasting high ratings or with a "Best Of" award under their belts. In this environment, it is helpful for any company to gain recognition for its outstanding achievements and customer service in order to distinguish themselves from competitors. The MVP Award for distributor members and the MVS Award for supplier members were created to help you brand your excellence and claim bragging rights in your marketing and PR efforts. Awards can contribute to successful public recognition in the following manner: * Visibility. Awards can help your company gain visibility within the industry, attract new customers as well as potential new employees by giving your company an edge over your competitors. * Validate. Awards help substantiate a company's credibility. * Testimony. Winning an award can serve as a testament to a company's work ethic, dedication and community involvement. This is attractive to new customers and can reinforce a company's reputation with current customers. * Reputation. An award can help transform a company's reputation from "pretty good", to excellent. * Differentiate. An award sets a company apart from competitors and differentiates the quality of its achievements and services from others. An award helps a company stand out for their excellence! For more information on the MVP and MVS Awards, go to the MHEDA website at www.mheda.org or contact Kathy Cotter at kcotter@mheda.org. 2016 MVP Companies AHS, LLC Cincinnati, OH CE-DFW Warehouse Solutions Grapevine, TX FloStor Engineering, Inc.
