ENX Elite Dealers Awards
ENX Magazine selected this year’s winners based on several criteria, including marketing prowess, digital transformation, leadership, work environment, technology, customer service and charitable endeavors.
“In our eyes, an Elite Dealer makes a concerted effort to produce a winning experience for not just its clients, but its employees and vendors as well,” said Susan Neimes, managing editor of ENX Magazine and ENX The Week In Imaging. “A defined corporate culture and a willingness to embrace new technologies—and share them with their customer base—also goes a long way. There’s no one ingredient behind an Elite Dealer—it’s a confluence of many factors that lifts these performers above the rest.”

Why ENX Considers XMC Elite
- Security savvy. Understanding that clients would be operating in environments conducive to security vulnerabilities, XMC partnered with Visual Edge IT, the managed IT arm of its parent company, to create educational cybersecurity webinars. Its June session included tales of companies that had been victimized by cyberattacks, and provided information on how customers can better protect their businesses. In the wake of the webinar, XMC was able to bring several clients into its IT portfolio.
- Chart topper. One of the most satisfying contracts XMC was able to secure was a client in the music industry, which had relied on a bigger vendor for the previous 20 years. Through solution selling and execution, XMC was able to demonstrate a superior value proposition.
- Pandemic solutions. XMC and its partners created a suite of adaptable solutions to serve the home office market, which in turn could be modified when clients return to their office environment. The packages included desktop printer/MFP options, managed IT services and hardware, VoIP hardware and softphone app solutions.
- Giving back. The dealer created an XMC C.A.R.E.S. Employee Support Fund, backed by employee contributions, that is available to help employees navigate through new or unexpected challenges. XMC also huddled with its accounting and financial advisor clients to produce XMC Expert Moments, an FAQ-format video to help individuals and businesses answer questions surrounding the changed economic environment.
