GAITHERSBURG, MD — September 26, 2013 — GXS, a leading provider of B2B integration services, today announced that it has been named Avago Technologies’s IT Supplier Quality Award (ISQA) Winner of 2013, an annual award presented to supplier partners that significantly contribute to the company’s goals. Avago, a leading supplier of innovative semiconductor solutions for advanced communications, industrial and commercial applications, presented GXS with the award at a gala ceremony in Shangri-La (Singapore).
With a customer base of 40,000 end customers and a portfolio of more than 6,500 products, Avago’s success depends upon being able to electronically integrate its supply chain. Using GXS Managed Services to connect with its global trading partners, the company now has a single point of integration between its business processes, partners and customers. The new process has improved efficiency and reduced the company’s operational costs. In addition, Avago can better meet its customers’ B2B needs, translating to higher revenues for the company.
“The award recognises GXS’s outstanding strategic contributions to Avago’s IT Technology Roadmap. The company is not only able to anticipate and deliver cost reduction but exhibits exemplary commitments to IT services and support,” said Hock Leng Lee, Director, Enterprise Applications at Avago Technologies. “GXS was selected from among industry leaders including Cisco, Google and Wipro for its consistent and excellent performance for Avago. We look forward to our continued relationship with GXS and even greater success in the future.”
Avago introduced its IT Supplier Quality Award (ISQA) program to aid in the company’s constant improvement strategy. Through ISQA, Avago establishes an assessment framework driven by facts and data and then recognises those supplier partners that help the company achieve that framework. The award is determined after a twelve-month assessment period, where suppliers must achieve an average rating score of 75% for 4 consecutive quarters based on the ISQA’s Score Card. The annual ISQA award is approved by the ISQA Program Management Review Committee that consists of senior executives.
“At GXS, we strive to enable our customers to not just meet but exceed their goals so we are honored to receive this award by Avago,” said Manoj Nagpal, VP of Professional Services, Asia Pacific at GXS. “By constantly evolving our technology for today’s ever changing needs, we continue to serve our clients and remain at the forefront of B2B Integration.”
