MERLION is ASUS award winner
At the ASUS annual partner conference, which was held this year on October 27, 2016 in Moscow, the manufacturer traditionally summarized the cooperation with Russian partners and distributors, by awarding the best and most successful among them. Alex Kim, the Head of the Russian Representation of ASUS, on behalf of the manufacturer presented the award "For long-term successful cooperation" to MERLION.
This award is more than just warranted. MERLION has for 16 years been the official distributor of ASUS in Russia. The distributor agreements cover nine commodity directions and in this year almost all of them, in spite of the challenging economic and market situation in the country, showed marked sales gain in the distributor channel. Thus, for example, "champions" by sales growth (in money terms, period October 2015. - October 2016) were ASUS smartphones (+107%), followed by monitors (+70%) and ASUS tablet PCs (+64%), moderate sales growth has been noted in ASUS video cards and drives (+24% and +23% correspondingly) categories, and in ASUS motherboards (+19%). The sales of ASUS notebooks were stable and results for them were as good as the indicators for the previous year.
"We are grateful to ASUS and personally to the head of the Russian Representation for the high evaluation of our work. It is always interesting and easy to work with such a giant as ASUS - newly designed products are a lot, as well as activities, the products have steady demand from our partners, among them retailers and system integrators, and sub-distributors. We shall together hold the bar without reducing the sales rates and volumes", - informed Dmitry Vinogradov, Director for distribution, MERLION "Full-range distribution" division.
