Highlighting outstanding support and commitment by suppliers
The annual Supplier Excellence awards are based on Supplier Scorecards that take into account quality, delivery, cost and services. In addition, this year a cross-functional stakeholder survey on the nominated suppliers was carried out, and the resulting scores taken into consideration. The review board is made up of Agfa HealthCare Executive Committee members. For 2015, 30 suppliers were nominated, with three selected for the Gold, Silver and Bronze awards.

“Our suppliers play a key role in our success as a healthcare imaging and IT company, and it is important that together we create a positive dynamic that allows all of us to serve our customers even better,” says Luc Thijs, President of Agfa HealthCare. “Part of this is recognizing and appreciating those suppliers who give us outstanding support. All of the 30 pre-selected companies are ‘winners’ in this respect, but Toshiba, Barco and TomTec really excelled.”
