We are proud of this collective achievement and of our continued partnership with Sears to support their integration needs across a diverse external business community.
ATLANTA (PRWEB) July 9, 2008
The prestigious Partners in Progress award is presented annually to a select group of supplier companies that provide Sears Holdings with quality products and services, from apparel, appliances and tools to marketing, facilities design and technology. Less than one percent of Sears Holdings' over 30,000 suppliers earn the coveted award each year.
Interim CEO and President Bruce Johnson congratulated the winners stating, "Partners in Progress was started more than 20 years ago and is a testament to the importance of collaborating with our supplier partners to better serve our customers and grow profitably. The Sears Holdings culture is one that places a high priority on teamwork and a focus on customers. The Partners in Progress program allows our company to recognize those suppliers who have gone above and beyond to support Sears Holdings' and help us to achieve greater efficiency and effectiveness."
"The greatest recognition we can receive is to be honored by a customer with this type of award," said Sean Feeney, president and chief executive officer, Inovis. "We are proud of this collective achievement and of our continued partnership with Sears to support their integration needs across a diverse external business community."
The Partners in Progress program recognizes suppliers for product or service quality, innovation, diversity and overall market performance. The winners were selected from nominations submitted by Sears' associates who purchase goods and services for the company in 2007.
This is the third time Sears Holdings has honored Inovis with the Partners in Progress award (1999, 2004 and 2007).
