Phoenix, AZ—March 5, 2019—AFS Technologies, (AFS) the global provider of software solutions purpose-built for consumer goods companies, has been named among the top ten solution providers in two categories of the Consumer Goods Technology (CGT) Best in Class Readers’ Choice 2019 Survey. The consumer goods technology provider was recognized in the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Retail Execution categories with special recognition as the Customer Satisfaction Leader in Retail Execution. This is the sixth consecutive year AFS has been selected as a top ten solution provider by CGT readers.
“Technology has become a critical driver of success in the consumer goods industry, which is undergoing an unprecedented level of disruption and transformation,” said Peter Breen, editor-in-chief of Consumer Goods Technology. “The solution providers that rise to the top of our annual lists should be commended not only for delivering best-practice tools and expert services but for striving to become true business partners for their clients.”
“Being “purpose-built” for food and beverage manufacturers and distributors might be one reason why AFS captured the Customer Satisfaction title this year (with a 4.0/5 rating),” CRM journalist Lisa Terry wrote in regards to why AFS was named the Customer Satisfaction Leader in Retail Execution. ‘The company’s solutions aim to enable clients to serve all channels through a single point of execution. The flagship RE Enterprise solution now embodies best practices from deployments in global enterprises, while the more nimble POP System 6 is a multi-tenant SaaS solution that can be deployed in days.”
This marks the sixth consecutive year AFS has been recognized in the CGT Best in Class Readers’ Choice Survey. Each year, CGT asks readers with expertise in IT, sales and marketing, supply chain, and product development to report their preferred technology solution and service providers. The top “Total Scored” companies in each category receive Best in Class recognition.
“Our customers continue to name AFS as their valued technology partner in this very competitive space, for which we are very grateful and honored,” said Richard Nicholas, CEO, AFS Technologies. “As experts in the consumer goods manufacturing industry, we strive to bring our customers a distinct competitive edge, and that’s exactly what we continue to do for seven of Forbes’ Top 10 Food & Beverage companies, as well as a wide selection of Tier 2 and 3 global CPGs. Over the next 12 months we will enhance the value we deliver to our customers by extending our solutions through AI/Machine Learning in areas such as promotions, segmentation, product innovation, and pricing dynamics.”
