Sanderson customers sweep the board at Today’s Group Awards

For another year running, Sanderson customers recently won an outstanding SEVEN awards for business excellence at the Today’s Group Awards Dinner 2011 held at the Chesford Grange Hotel in Warwickshire recently.

The Awards acknowledge the contribution and overall performance of the Today’s Group Wholesale Members. Sanderson customers were triumphant in a range of awards which recognise exceptional commitment and hard-work undertaken by all the winners.

In the Foodservice Wholesaler of the Year category, M.J. Baker received second place and First Choice Cash & Carry were awarded third place. The Member Marketing Initiative of the Year awards went to J.W. Filshill in second place, with Dee Bee winning third place. In the Rising Star of 2010/2011 category, Turner & Wrights was acknowledged with second place.

The Retailer Development of the Year went deservedly to Savage & Whitten, with Thames Cash & Carry picking up third place. The award-winning Sanderson customers use the Swords IT solution to manage their business operations, from telesales and order processing to warehousing and stock control, with fully integrated financials. Swords is a modular system so customers can extend functionality as their business requires. Additional modules include, Business Intelligence and Mobile Reps Sales, Radio Frequency and Voice Picking. The award winning J.W. Filshill and Savage & Whitten have added the Voice Picking module to their systems.

Mark Windebank, Managing Director of Savage & Whitten confirms how the Sanderson system is a crucial component in their business:

“We pride ourselves on providing the best service to our customers and the Swords wholesale solution helps us to deliver this. By recently adding Voice Order Picking technology, we can save valuable working time for staff and increase our overall warehouse productivity.”
