NIWOT, CO, May 2019
Modern Distribution Management is proud to announce JIS, a division of Jergens, Inc., as a recipient of MDM’s inaugural Digital Innovator Award. The MDM Digital Innovator Award recognizes 10 companies that are demonstrating mastery across a range of technological applications to build a competitive advantage.

With the explosive growth of Amazon Business and a variety of new digital models in distribution, digital innovation is becoming an increasingly important competitive asset for distributors who don’t want to be left behind. MDM’s Digital Innovator Award winners exemplify the skills needed to compete in today’s marketplace.

“We have an outstanding group of winners. Each company MDM chose to recognize is capitalizing on unique technology applications and demonstrating overall market-leading digital capabilities that are positioning them for long-term growth,” said Tom Gale, CEO of Modern Distribution Management.

JIS and all winners will be honored at MDM’s Digital Distributor Summit in Denver, June 20, 2019.

Selected from dozens of online nominations over a month-long period, areas of consideration in choosing MDM’s Digital Innovator Award included companies demonstrating:

  • Successful e-commerce initiatives 
  • Improvement of downstream customer engagement or workflow integration
  • High return on internet-based technologies and overall web investment
  • Growth in internal operating efficiencies 
  • Superior B2B-focused capabilities that differentiate from consumer shopping needs
