Global Partners Named To InformationWeek 500 List Of Top Technology Innovators

Global Partners LP (NYSE: GLP) today announced that it has been named to the 2012 InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation’s most innovative users of business technology.

Global Partners was honored for its Strategic Partner Program, a comprehensive vendor quality assessment and recognition program put in place in early 2011. “The Strategic Partner Program is one element in Global Partners’ broader Information Technology Transformation Initiative, which is designed to leverage technology to meet the Partnership’s long-term strategic objectives,” said Kenneth J. Piddington, Global Partners’ Chief Information Officer.

“We are proud to have our Strategic Partner Program recognized by one of the world’s leading sources of IT (information technology) content,” Piddington said. “Through our program, we are building high-quality partnerships with our vendors by evaluating and recognizing their efforts to reduce costs, improve service quality and create solutions that contribute to our financial and operational success.”

The program includes vendor showcases, annual vendor performance reviews and other tools designed to help the Partnership execute its IT strategy. To recognize its most successful collaborations, Global Partners hosts an annual event to honor vendors in categories such as teamwork and collaboration, innovation and customer service, with an overall award for Vendor of the Year.

Said Piddington, “In the 18 months since it was implemented, the program has not only resulted in measurable cost savings but also technology solutions that have helped us better meet the needs of our customers. This award reinforces the value we are delivering through technological, procedural, and organizational innovation.”

“The InformationWeek 500 has recognized the most innovative users of business technology for 24 years, and this year’s innovators were particularly impressive,” said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. “What the editors looked for were unconventional approaches—new technologies, new models, new ways of grabbing business opportunities and solving complex business problems with IT.”
