We recently received an A+ rating from SAGE for 2021!SAGE presents rating awards to 1,267 suppliers based on distributor ratings from SAGE Online, SAGE Web, and SAGE Mobile.
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 industry's most popular product research and business management solutions.
This year, 1,008 suppliers received the top A+ rating, while another 259 suppliers received an A rating. A total of 30 percent of all active suppliers in the SAGE database received an award 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.
Awards are based solely on the distributor rating system that is part of SAGE Online, SAGE Web, and SAGE Mobile. The SAGE rating system is widely known within the industry for providing the most accurate and reliable supplier ratings.
Distributors can rate suppliers at any time through the SAGE suite or via a "Rate us now" link provided by suppliers. They can only rate each supplier once, however, they may update their ratings at any time, providing the most accurate representation of their experiences with each supplier. Rating awards are given each year based on the aggregate of distributor ratings and suppliers with an A+ or A aggregate rating are given an award.
Distributors using SAGE's industry-leading research and business management tools can make more informed decisions about suppliers by accessing suppliers' current, real-time ratings, including peer distributor comments as well as full award information, including any additional industry awards, for each supplier.
Award-winning suppliers will have access to a variety of marketing collateral to promote their A+ or A rated status, including logos for their catalogs, websites, and email signatures.
