SAGE Announces This Year’s Highest-Rated Suppliers And Decorators

PPAI technology partner SAGE (PPAI 100001) has announced its 2023 rating award winners, which distinguishes suppliers and decorators who earn A+ or A grades as rated by industry distributors using SAGE Online, SAGE Web and SAGE Mobile.

These distinctions are the results of distributor ratings throughout the year. In essence, they represent the top suppliers, as decided by the industry’s distributors. SAGE bases the awards solely on its distributor rating system.

Throughout the year, distributors can rate these companies through SAGE or via the “Rate us now” link provided by suppliers and decorators.

  • Rating awards are given each year based on the aggregate of distributor ratings.
  • Suppliers and decorators with an A+ or A aggregate rating are given an award.

There are over 4,000 supplier and decorator companies in the SAGE database. For the 2023 rating awards, 893 of those companies received a top A+ rating, and another 207 received an A rating. The honor also serves as eligibility for these companies to be considered for the annual PPAI Supplier Star Awards competition.

“We are proud to offer these awards to those that have persevered and really raised the bar for the standard of quality, transparency and integrity in the industry,” says SAGE President David Natinsky, MAS.

Distributors using SAGE’s industry-leading research and business management tools can make more informed decisions about suppliers by accessing their current, real-time ratings, including distributor peer comments as well as full award information, including any additional industry awards, for each supplier.

SAGE will offer award-winning companies access to a variety of marketing collateral to promote their A+ or A rated status, including logos for catalogs, websites, and email signatures. For more information, suppliers should contact their SAGE Account Advisor at (800) 925-7243.
