About the Service Awards

The KYOCERA Document Solutions Service Awards were set up 10 years ago to celebrate and reward engineers with that “golden touch” when it comes to servicing and supporting customers.

The prestigious KYOCERA Service Awards are the only awards to recognise excellence in this vital area of our industry. The online format makes participating easy and the confidential test results give invaluable feedback to KYOCERA technicians, evaluating their skills & knowledge against other KYOCERA service technicians throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Previous participants have found they grow as technicians, improve their skills & knowledge and feel part of the wider KYOCERA community. Finalists also get to engage and network with colleagues across the region.

Progress to the national or grand finals also brings recognition. Not only for the technicians, but also for their employers, who've created an environment of excellence where the technicians can flourish.
