Awards were presented during the company's 2015 UK Supplier Excellence Summit held earlier today at The Grange St. Paul's Hotel in London, England.
"It is important to acknowledge our UK suppliers and the excellent service they provide for our programmes," said Mr. Peter Carvalho, President of Agile-1. "They truly set the bar high in terms of performance standards, and as a result, ensure that our clients are able to achieve their business objectives. We are fortunate to have these esteemed companies as our business partners."

Platinum, Gold, and Silver awards were presented to Room at the Top, CK Clinical, and First Recruitment, respectively. Lab Support was the winner of the Emerging Supplier of the Year. Winners were determined by comparing performance data and satisfaction surveys from account and on-site teams. A normalised score was created for every supplier to define actual rankings based on assurance of supply, quality and service.
During the event, the company's new Known Supplier Programme was introduced as a means to enhance the benefits suppliers derive from doing business with Agile-1. "Our focus is to create value for our clients through strategic partnerships," said Jaideep Majumdar, Senior Director, Global Strategic Sourcing for Agile-1.
