Actiontec is only DSL CPE Vendor to win Prestigious Supplier Award Multiple Times
Actiontec honored with Circuit City’s Supply Chain Excellence Award
[b]Sunnyvale, Calif., June 3, 2008[/b] – Actiontec Electronics today announced that it received Circuit City’s sixth annual Supply Chain Excellence Award, recognizing the company’s expertise and commitment in retail supply chain management. This is the second time in six years that Actiontec has been honored by Circuit City, making it the only DSL CPE vendor to take home the honors multiple times.  

According to Circuit City, the Supply Chain Excellence Award recognizes the top vendors who have maintained consistent delivery performance in a flexible consumer environment, as well as helped reduce costs in the supply chain, while ensuring products are delivered as scheduled. Actiontec has continually exceeded the retailer’s expectations of in-stock levels of its DSL modem and consumer broadband connectivity products.

“For retailers, on-shelf availability is critical for maximizing sales and ensuring happy and loyal customers. And with DSL CPE equipment, the impact of in-store inventory ripples out to service provider partners, where out-of-stock conditions can affect their sales and bottom line,” said Michael Ehlenberger, VP, Channel Sales at Actiontec. “Actiontec has a dedicated team of experts managing channel inventory at the store level on a daily basis, working closely with both retailers and service providers to support their diverse ground-level efforts and make sure we’re prepared for demand spikes based on local and regional promotions and events.”

Ehlenberger continued, “We’re honored by Circuit City’s recognition of our commitment to excellence. This award reflects our commitment to growing our partners’ businesses and helping them achieve their goals.”
