Baxter Planning Systems, the premier provider of aftermarket parts planning solutions, today announced that SupplyChainBrain, the magazine and online source for executives at the highest levels of supply chain management, has recognized Baxter as one of its 100 Great Supply Chain Partners for 2009. “Baxter is one of the rare companies who have captured this award every year since its inception,” noted Kelly Keller, Sales Director for SupplyChainBrain.
“To remain a leader in our field, we not only have to continually deliver the most effective planning solutions, but we must continue to support our customers at the highest level," said Greg Baxter, founder and CEO for Baxter Planning Systems. “We sincerely appreciate this recognition from SupplyChainBrain, their readers and our customers. We believe it further validates our position of leadership in the service parts planning space.”
The SupplyChainBrain 100 Great Supply Chain Partners program is the result of a six-month poll in which the magazine asks logistics and supply chain professionals to nominate vendors and service providers whose technology, logistics, transportation or consulting solutions have made a significant impact on their company's efficiency, customer service and overall supply chain performance. “In 2009, we received more than 2,700 nominations from small and large companies covering scores of different industries,” states Brad Berger, publisher of SupplyChainBrain. “Vendors of every conceivable type of supply chain activity were nominated - from very specialized technologies, to a wide range of third-party logistics, transportation and consulting services. The 100 companies that received the most qualified nominations are represented on this year’s list which is published within the July issue of SupplyChainBrain’s magazine and on SupplyChainBrain.com for the remainder of 2009. The purpose of the list in this report is to recognize those vendors that have so impressed SupplyChainBrain readers that they deserved to be singled out and to be held up as examples for others in the industry. It is an opportunity to thank those providers who have helped readers achieve better results, and to let the industry know who is making a genuine effort to be a supply chain partner—not just another vendor. Congratulations to Baxter Planning Systems for being selected a 2009 SupplyChainBrain Great Supply Chain Partner.”
