Henry Howard wins national award

Henry Howard Finance has been presented with a prestigious national award for helping the UK telecoms channel deliver customer solutions via successful finance options.

The Newport-based company was named ‘Best Channel Business Service’ at the Comms National Awards in recognition of its innovative financial products, industry leading technology (HowApp) and high level of service.

HowApp enables partners to access Henry Howard services via desktop, tablet or smartphone or from their own CRM and web shops, meaning that a completed transaction on lease can be achieved in a matter of minutes.

The award is just the latest recognition for the independent finance house in 2016. In June, Henry Howard Finance was presented with an award for Comms Business Channel Product of the Year: Professional Services.

Dan Proctor, commercial director at Henry Howard Finance, said: “We are pleased the industry views us as the leading business service for the channel. The reliability of HowApp™, our expertise in sales support and competitive rates ensures we are a trusted partner of leading manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors.

“Our aim is to satisfy both equipment suppliers and the end customer, and we constantly strive to help vendor accounts succeed and grow.”

More than 190 entries were received for the Comms National Awards this year from resellers providing hardware, software and network product solutions across the diverse UK market.

Entries were marked on financial performance between July 2015 and July 2016, the return on investment of solutions, support and service provided and the quality of supporting testimonials.

Nigel Sergent, editorial director of the Comms National Awards, commented: “The Comms National Awards is a great indicator of an industry’s mood and confidence, and our panel of judges are highly experienced in the ICT industry.

“In the professional services category the judges felt that the winning entry stood out in terms of innovation, uniqueness and customer value.”
