Docking Station Honored as Best Product in Technology Category, Earns Kudos for Addressing the Need to Work Conveniently and Maximize Laptop Productivity
Kensington®, a worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business and home office professionals and The Professional’s Choice for nearly 35 years, today announced that its SD3600 Universal USB 3.0 Docking Station was selected as a Best Product in the Technology Products Category in the North American Office Products Awards (NAOPA) 2016. The NAOPA awards were presented at the SP Richards (SPR) ABC show in Washington D.C. on July 21.
The awards were launched in 2010 by Office Products International (OPI) in association with SPR. Now in their seventh year, these awards set the industry standard and aim to find the best business products in North America. They were judged by a panel of leading resellers and the winners were announced during a packed General Session at SPR’s ABC.
“The judges recognize the need in offices and home working environments for great, hardworking solutions to the problem of using laptops comfortably and conveniently. This new, low-profile docking station enables users to quickly connect and disconnect their laptops with their entire desktop setup – not just some parts – with a single USB cable. And the mounting option can reduce desk clutter completely – which is ever more important where space is limited. The judges thought this was a great product that would sell very well.” Steve Hilleard, CEO of OPI.
Among the criteria, the judges were looking for:
- Product innovation, design and functionality
- How the product has improved upon previous designs/models
- The benefits for the reseller and the consumer
- The level of marketing support, innovation and initiatives in promoting the products to the end-user
“We’re very excited the SD3600 Universal USB 3.0 Docking Station was chosen for the North American Office Products Awards,” said Louie Yao, senior global product manager, Kensington. “The award signifies Kensington’s commitment to both design innovation and building quality products that make working more convenient, comfortable and productive for business users and home office professionals.”
Kensington’s SD3600 Universal USB 3.0 Docking Station, announced in January 2016, was designed to improve the ease with which users can integrate their computing devices to enhance productivity. The low-profile docking station enables users to quickly connect and disconnect their laptops with their entire desktop setup, including dual HD monitors, a mouse, a keyboard and all other peripherals, with a single USB cable. And because the dock can be mounted to the back of a VESA-compatible monitor, it leaves zero footprint on the desktop, helping reduce clutter.
