Apex Systems Earns Recognition for Supplier Excellence at the 2013 Agile•1 Customer Forum

RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Apex Systems, a national IT staffing and services firm headquartered in Glen Allen, has announced it was recognized for Outstanding Performance in 2012 by Agile•1 as part of the company's Supplier Excellence awards. The award was revealed during a special dinner at the 2013 Agile•1 Customer Forum which took place in Orlando, Florida on April 25.

"It was great to be one of the nine companies honored at this event," noted Shawn Handley, SVP of Business Development. "We are proud of what we have been able to accomplish through our strong partnership with Agile•1. Not only are we both able to provide a higher level of support to our clients, we have worked together to develop robust practices that will be beneficial for the future."

"Agile•1 has built strong relationships with our suppliers during our thirty-plus years in the industry," said Peter Carvalho, president of Agile•1. "To select examples of supplier excellence we looked for a history of consistently surpassing contract requirements to solve problems for our clients. The suppliers chosen for these awards have exceeded our expectations and delivered best-in-class service for our clients."

Suppliers were evaluated based on overall performance, feedback from on-site teams and ease of engagement. Ratings were obtained from raw performance data pulled for each supplier by account and on-site teams were engaged to conduct surveys on each supplier using client-based criteria. A normalized score was created for every supplier to define actual rankings based on assurance of supply, quality and service.

"The Supplier Excellence awards are proof that our supplier relationships consistently deliver the excellence our clients expect," said Jaideep Majumdar, senior director, Global Strategic Sourcing. "We are thrilled to work with such a talented and committed group of suppliers."
