...but the brands we’ve helped have a lot to say, too!
“For the past decade, GoPro has maintained and grown our business relationship with Powerplay.
GoPro was fortunate enough to partner with Powerplay in our infancy stage when they helped us grow our business and expand into the retail space by partnering with Best Buy and Target. The experience Powerplay has in the Twin Cities was crucial in helping us scale quickly and grow our brand presence while aligning with customer processes/expectations.
They have worked tirelessly with us to find solutions to the many known challenges that appear in the retail space and in servicing accounts when you’re a technology products provider. Powerplay is always willing to work with us to find ways to advance our relationships and prosper in the marketplace!
Having a true partner like Powerplay is critical for any brand to grow, maintain leadership, and navigate an ever-changing retail landscape. It’s very reassuring to have Powerplay in your corner knowing you can count on decades of retail/OEM experience and professionalism day in and day out.”
