Professional Standards

We are accredited with the Association of Professional Sales (APS), and as a member of the APS we exhibit integrity, credibility and a genuine interest in helping our customers obtain the right solutions to their business problems.

To highlight our dedication to ethical behaviour, our entire direct sales team have achieved Professional Registration with the APS. This is the latest demonstration of the company’s commitment to the highest professional standards – something it firmly believes offers significant competitive advantages, as well as enhancing its brand values. To mark this outstanding achievement, Toshiba TEC has been presented with an Investor in Sales Award from the APS. Andrew Hough, Chief Executive Officer of the APS, said, ‘Toshiba TEC is a valued and respected member of the APS and we both hold the view that ethics, career development and treating sales as a profession are vital in order to give this profession the credibility it deserves.’

The Association of Professional Sales (APS) provide development, standards and leadership to the profession. Formed in 2012 within the Chartered Institute of Marketing, and incorporated as a not for profit entity in 2014, it is designed to represent sales as a profession to governments, buyers and customers. Its ultimate objective is to create a global Chartered Institute of Sales by 2020 in order to deliver a professional body that is regarded with the same respect and standing as other professional organisations.

The APS professionally registers sales professionals who display high standards of customer focus and quality. The APS puts customer and ethics at the heart of all sales activity, values that we share.
