Tuscaloosa, AL - AFFLINK, a leading sales and marketing organization for the professional cleaning, healthcare, hospitality, industrial, and other industries and developers of the ELEVATE® process, has just been named to the list of the 20 Most Promising Supply Chain Technology Solution Providers for 2016, published by CIOReview magazine.
This is an annual listing of companies, determined by a panel of experts and members of CIOReview's editorial board, with the goal of recognizing and promoting technology entrepreneurship.
"We are proud to include AFFLINK as one among the 20 Most Promising Supply Chain Technology Solution Providers in 2016," says Jeevan George, managing editor of CIOReview. "AFFLINK's ELEVATE process allows clients to identify the needs of their facilities, find products and solutions that address those needs, and uncover a variety of cost savings."
This is just one of several accolades AFFLINK has received for its ELEVATE process since it was introduced a couple of years ago.
The ELEVATE process is a free, online service that includes the following four key components, according to Dennis Riffer, president and CEO of AFFLINK who was actually on the publications magazine cover:
The Discover Phase: In this first phase, the process identifies and verifies a customer's unique business priorities.
The Explore Phase: The second phase entails a virtual "peeling back of the roof" on a facility so customers can view recommended products and solutions for every area of their facility.
The Evaluate Phase: Using the customer's data and proprietary algorithms, the process can highlight ways the customer can reduce costs, taking advantage of ordering, invoicing, warehousing, and labor savings.
The Conclusion: In this final phase, the process provides a recap of its recommendations and then suggests an on-site consultation to help the client implement those recommendations.
"We are not just focused on products that can perform certain tasks," says Riffer. "The aim of the ELEVATE process is to look beyond to identity savings in ordering, inventory, and labor usage."
Riffer adds that one reason AFFLINK received this honor is because it is becoming very clear that the supply chain landscape is changing and that "technology will play a critical role in this evolution."
Editors please note: The word "AFFLINK" is always capitalized.
