APICS introduced a new tier to their partner program 2 years ago. Up until that point you were either a Channel partner or a Premier Channel partner. To become a Premier partner, you need to be able to work well with the APICS philosophy, help people in supply chain by motivating them to push forward in their careers, expand their knowlegde through learning, certification & networking, to assist companies to develop their supply chain employees and to improve the overall quality, sustainability & effectiveness of supply chains and their professionals globaly.
CIMCIL was selected as a Premier Channel Partner as from the inception of this partner program. But 18 months ago, APICS presented a new tier: Premier Elite Channel Partner. This new tier would prove the excellence of the partner in the above categories. It also shows that this partner is always looking at better ways to improve supply chains & supply chain professionals.
In January 2017, I had the opportunity to take over the daily management of CIMCIL and I made it my challenge to obtain this new partnership within the next 2-3 years. So you can imagine that I’m very excited to report that we achieved this partnership after only 18 months.
As of August 2018, CIMCIL received the honour to be called Premier Elite Channel Partner as only one of four partners in the world.
We continue our journey to develop the supply chain profession in every way possible, starting next November with our 3rd symposium. Don’t hesitate to check out the program on this website. That’s also the place to be if you want to start or continue your APICS certification.
