Addison, Texas-based SAGE, a provider of product research and marketing tools primarily geared toward the promotional products industry, including shops that make flags and banners, announces its 2017 supplier rating award winners.
Each year, SAGE presents industry suppliers with “A+” and “A” rating awards based on distributor ratings collected in SAGE Online, SAGE Web, and SAGE Mobile, the company’s product research and business management suite.
This year, 999 suppliers received the top A+ rating, while another 345 suppliers received an A rating. A total of 34 percent of all active suppliers in the SAGE database received one of the awards this year. As part of the Power of Two relationship between SAGE and PPAI, suppliers with SAGE ratings are also considered for eligibility in the industry’s annual PPAI Pyramid Supplier Star Awards Competition.
SAGE’s awards are based solely on the distributor rating system that is part of SAGE Online, SAGE Web, and SAGE Mobile, a rating system considered within the industry as being extremely accurate, according to the company.
