Welocalize Recognized as a John Deere Partner-Level Supplier for the Second Consecutive Year
Welocalize has earned recognition as a Partner-level supplier for 2017 in the John Deere Achieving Excellence Program. The Partner-level status is Deere & Company’s highest supplier rating. Welocalize was selected for the second consecutive year for the honor in recognition of its dedication to providing products and service of outstanding quality as well as its commitment to continuous improvement.
“Welocalize is honored to be recognized by Deere & Company for our efforts to deliver at the highest performance level of quality and global teamwork established by the Achieving Excellence Program,” says Smith Yewell, CEO of Welocalize. “We share a vision and commitment to continuous improvement and open communication, as these are foundational to building a lasting partnership.”
Welocalize is a global supplier of localization and language services to John Deere operations in North America, Europe, and Asia.
Suppliers who participate in the Achieving Excellence program are evaluated annually in several key performance categories, including quality, cost management, delivery, technical support and wavelength, which is a measure of responsiveness. John Deere Supply Management created the program in 1991 to provide a supplier evaluation and feedback process that promotes continuous improvement.
