Apteco hosted its first ever virtual Apex event this year. Apteco’s annual partner event was held online on Wednesday 18 November 2020 and was an opportunity for Apteco to thank its partners for their continued support and loyalty over the past year, and to announce the winners of the annual Apteco partner awards.
Congratulations to the 2020 Apteco award winners!
The Apteco Partner of the Year 2020 was awarded to Qbase for the UK region and Bertelsmann Campaign, for the DACH Region. Qbase, who has been in partnership with Apteco for over 18 years, has won the coveted Partner of the Year award three times, in 2017, 2018 and 2020.
Apteco’s Business Development Director in the UK, Simon Fletcher had this to say about Qbase’s victory: “Qbase consistently engage with Apteco in a true partnership. We have continuous connections with all parts on their business from sales to technical support. They continue to succeed as an Apteco partner because they are committed to the partnership and making our technology work for clients. Technology on its own won't provide the returns needed by todays marketer. It requires knowledge and understanding from businesses like Qbase to really help organisations make the strides forward in their ambitions and to maximise the realisation of the benefits Apteco's software can provide.”
Martin Clarke, Apteco MD in the German region presented Bertelsmann Campaign with their award and praised the German partner for their outstanding commitment: “Especially in this year with all the challenges regarding the pandemic, partnerships are more important than ever. It is good to see that our partner network is increasing every year and we have partners we can rely on. With the award ceremony we recognise their outstanding commitment and thank all our partners for their engagement during the year.”
