Honored By Sage for Innovation, Customer Experience, Community Stewardship

CONCORD, N.C. (July 22, 2011) — Practical Software Solutions, a Sage Authorized Partner, announced today that three of its customers won first-place honors at the 2011 Sage Customer Awards Program. It was the first time in the four years of the Sage Customer Awards that more than one customer of a Sage partner won first-place honors in the same year.

The winners were:

  • Force Protection, Inc., of Ladson, S.C., was honored for Extraordinary Customer Experience for their development and maintenance of their fleet of mine-protected vehicles around the world. The Extraordinary Customer Experience Award recognizes an organization that uses Sage solutions to consistently provide an extraordinary customer experience to its own customer base.
  • Industries of the Blind, Greensboro (N.C.), was honored for Community Stewardship for their longtime work with the visually impaired in Guilford County. The Community Stewardship Award recognizes an organization that emphasizes the local, national, or global community in an effort to better the lives of the people the organization strives to serve.
  • Young's Plant Farm, of Auburn, Ala., was honored for adding Scan by Cart capabilities to the Grower Vertical module for Sage ERP MAS 500. The Innovation Award recognizes the extraordinary achievement of a customer that has adopted Sage applications as an enterprise-class solution for its industry.

We're honored that the independent panel of judges chose our customers to win three of the six Sage awards, said Vince Stamey, Chief Executive Officer of Practical Software Solutions. These are three great organizations who have benefited their customers, their community, and their industry, and deserve to be recognized for their work.

Two other Practical Software Solutions customers previously have won Sage Customer Awards. Metrolina Greenhouses of Huntersville, N.C., received the Best Use of Customization Award in 2008 for their work in developing the Grower Vertical module for Sage ERP MAS 500. Power Curbers, Inc., of Salisbury, N.C., received the Best End-to-End Deployment Award in 2009 for their turn-around after implementing three Sage products: Sage ERP MAS 500, Sage FAS Fixed Assets, and Sage SalesLogix.
