The 2022 Supply Chain Excellence Awards recognize successful transformation initiatives resulting in significant business impact through improved supply chain decision-making. Each recipient was recognized for their achievements and for helping shape the supply chain’s future through their rapid deployment and innovative use of the GAINS platform.

The Supply Chain Resilience Awards were given to Benco Dental and Grimco for using the GAINS platform to navigate significant supply chain disruptions throughout the pandemic, global supply shortages, and economic uncertainties.

Benco Dental, a full-service dental supply and equipment distributor that also provides services for dental practices spoke about their journey, including finding alternative sourcing and managing dramatic demand shifts in a recent webinar.  

Grimco, a wholesale sign manufacturer and distributor, announced that by using GAINS, they have increased order fulfillment to 95 percent and used procurement automation to manage a significant increase in their business volume without increasing their team size.

The Supply Chain Agility in Action Award was awarded to Banner Engineering and Franklin Sports.

The award honors these customers and their GAINS professional service teams for their successful partnership and deployment.
