For sixteen years running, SupplyChainBrain has published our much-anticipated list of 100 Great Supply Chain Partners — a select group of companies whose customers recognize them for providing outstanding solutions and services. Our six-month online poll of supply chain professionals requires a qualified response, asking them to nominate vendors and service providers whose solutions have made a significant impact on their company’s efficiency, customer service and overall supply chain performance. This year’s field of nominees was competitive and inspiring – coming from all sectors of supply chain management. Your company should be proud to be named amongst the 100 Great!” – Brad Berger, Publisher, SupplyChainBrain

Baxter Planning is honored to maintain a spot as a favorite solution provider on SupplyChainBrain’s esteemed list and this recognition follows two customer awards granted earlier this year: the 2018 Vendor Appreciation Award from Avaya, a multinational technology company specializing in business communications technology and driving digital transformation, at the 8th annual Avaya Supplier Day in Singapore and the 2018 “Excellence in Supply Chain Software Solutions” award from Palo Alto Networks, a leading provider of enterprise security solutions.

Earlier this year, Baxter Planning launched a new brand identity campaign introducing the tagline of “Your partners in planning”. Baxter customers rely on Baxter’s solutions to optimize their service inventory and improve planner productivity.  “Baxter stands by us. They do their best to understand where we are, how we see our situation, and where we want to go.  Then they help us make it happen.” and “With Baxter, I talk with fellow planners, not just IT-trained developers.” are examples of quotes used by supply chain executives familiar with Baxter during the validation process for the new tagline. Baxter Planning’s innovative and collaborative approach to service parts planning, continues to be recognized throughout the industry and in publications like SupplyChainBrain.
