Workshop Power Awards 2017 to be presented tonight

Workshop Power Awards 2017 to be presented tonight

TODAY’S the day! Yes – the 2017 Workshop Power Awards are finally here!

After being inundated with responses to our mega survey of suppliers that work with the service and repair industry, the winners and highly commendeds have been chosen and will be announced tonight at our glittering ceremony to be held at the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth. Last year’s event was a fantastic occasion and this year’s promises to be even more so.

power2017These awards really are the ones to have within the aftersales industry – winning a trophy or being highly commended packs a tremendous marketing punch!

The beauty of these awards is that the answers are given anonymously, so the results really are a true reflection of which suppliers are at the top of their game and those that need to reconsider how they do things. We feed back the findings to the suppliers as well – without saying who said what, of course –  so it’s highly likely that they will make changes to how they work with their customers based on the feedback.
