SAGE has announced its 2015 supplier rating award winners. Each year, SAGE presents industry suppliers with A and A+ rating awards based on distributor ratings collected from SAGE Online, SAGE Mobile and SAGE Web.

“We are always excited to acknowledge our award-winning suppliers for their outstanding achievements during the year,” says SAGE president David Natinsky. “Being awarded with an A+ or A rating from SAGE is something to be very proud of and shows that our industry continues to move in a positive direction with a strong focus on customer service and quality products.”

This year, 1,021 suppliers received the top A+ rating, while 432 suppliers received an A rating. A total of 36 percent of all suppliers in the SAGE database received an award this year. As part of the Power of Two relationship between SAGE and PPAI, SAGE ratings are also factored into eligibility in the industry’s annual PPAI Supplier Star Awards Competition.

Distributors can rate suppliers at any time using SAGE Online, SAGE Mobile, SAGE Web or via a “Rate us now” link provided by suppliers. Distributors can only rate each supplier one time, but they may change their ratings at any time. Supplier award winners will have access to a variety of marketing collateral to promote their award status, including logos for their catalogs, websites, email signatures, etc.
