EAST MOLINE, Ill., March 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Aquent IT Solutions, a Division of Aquent, has been recognized as a "Partner-level Supplier" in John Deere's Achieving Excellence Program for the fifteenth consecutive year. Aquent IT Solutions received this supplier rating—John Deere's highest— based on their proven dedication to quality and their commitment to continuous improvement.
Aquent IT Solutions provides John Deere technical services and support for mission critical areas of marketing, order fulfillment, dealer channel, customer service and supply management. Company representatives accepted this recognition in formal ceremonies on March 3, 2015.
"We are proud to be recognized by John Deere as a supplier who consistently delivers above and beyond their performance standards and expectations," said Dan Neff, President of Aquent IT Solutions. "We know that John Deere works with thousands of suppliers and very few win this award. This recognition is a tribute to the experience and talent of Aquent employees who work hard every day to produce work of the highest quality."
Aquent IT Solutions has been a supplier to John Deere for over 25 years. In 2009, Aquent IT Solutions became the first supplier of IT Services to earn Ten-year Hall of Fame status by attaining a Partner-level rating for 10 consecutive years.
Once again, Aquent has reached a milestone which no other IT services supplier has attained: Fifteen-year Hall of Fame status. This award places Aquent in a unique position as the only IT organization with such a stellar record.
John Deere's Achieving Excellence process rates suppliers in the areas of quality, delivery, technical support, wavelength (relationships), and cost management.
