Huge congratulations to Foodstuffs South Island on winning the award for The Executive Team of the Year (for Strategic Use of Business Technology), sponsored by ClearPoint, at the CIO Awards 2015.

The executive team at Foodstuffs South Island was presented the award for the recent rollout of their New World club card and CRM system. The project had a degree of complexity given the multiple stakeholders involved; yet the execution appears flawless.

The judges were particularly impressed at how the executive team of Foodstuffs South Island worked together to ensure that success. The GMs on the steering group were heavily involved and supported by the IT team with mutual respect and inter-dependence. The entire team aligned to manage expectations and outcomes, and to provide resources and resolve issues as required.

The result of the strong teamwork is a new loyalty card and CRM system that has real business impact and has helped Foodstuffs maintain and grow market share.

Foodstuffs South Island, we applaud your achievements. Congratulations on your success!
