About the Take Charge Award

In 2010 when Plimus launched the “Round Table” program, it was their intention that it would be another tool to help improve the sales of their larger sellers. As a result, they made improvements to their systems and processes and learned lessons that would be of benefit to sellers of all sizes. As a thank you – Plimus started a small recognition program called “Take Charge”, representing their top vendors who achieved the greatest growth. Plimus intended that the award will be a stimulus for expansion and good practice.

This year for 2011 Plimus awarded “Take Charge” to their top 30 sellers based on sales growth and volume. Also considered were the quality of products offered. As Plimus limited these awards it’s a pretty exclusive ‘club’ of businesses that have successfully taken charge of their businesses
