GPA is pleased to announce nine recipients of our 2024 Vendor Global Excellence Awards. GPA’s Global Vendor Excellence Awards are rewarded annually to the leading audio, video, and UC manufacturers and vendors who show the highest level of commitment to delivering a superior experience worldwide.

The Vendor Global Excellence Awards evaluate over forty technology vendors across the industry, focusing on their programs, support, solutions, and most importantly, their capacity to support a global enterprise program for GPA and its customers. To determine the award winners, key executives, sales, and engineering team members from all GPA’s Regional Business Units complete a comprehensive survey covering a range of key business delivery factors.

Each nominated vendor is rated in five categories: product innovation, technical support, sales and marketing programs, commercial flexibility, and commitment to global deployment and support programs. GPA then analyzes the results, and vendors exceeding a predetermined threshold receive the Vendor Global Excellence Awards. The insights gained from these surveys help both GPA and the vendors to enhance their common goal of delivering improved collaborative outcomes globally.

“We recognize that delivering our promise of global consistency and scalability relies heavily on the support of our vendor partners, who share this commitment. As an organization designed for global deployment, the data we collect during evaluations provides us with exceptional insight into our partners’ capabilities. We use this data to enhance and strengthen our design, procurement, deployment, and support processes for customers worldwide. Congratulations to all our 2024 recipients.”

Mike Stead – Director of Global Partnerships, GPA.
