We are delighted to announce that Sainsbury’s has recognised CADS for our innovative use of technology at their recent awards for the supermarket giant’s strategic partners.

The innovation award was presented at Sainsbury’s Strategic Property Partner Conference to Guy Moats and Pete Humm, highlighting CADS’ industry-leading application of new technology.

The industry event was created by the supermarket to acknowledge and reward their many commercial partners who help develop, maintain and optimise their extensive network of physical stores. These partners ensure Sainsbury’s is able to put its best foot forward in serving customers.

Guy Moates, Director of CADS said:

“We’re thrilled to be recognised by such a large and successful organisation for our stand-out use of innovation. We’re dedicated to continual development of the technology we use to support our clients, so this is a true honour”

CADS recognised for StoreSpace® software

Sainsbury’s awarded several other strategic partners for their contributions to the supermarket’s property portfolio. These awards included sustainability, safety and innovation in service.

Sainsbury’s prestigious award was in particular recognition of CADS’ StoreSpace® software, which makes retail planners’ lives easier by using sales data and AutoCAD-based modelling to help improve profitability.

“Our partners play a vital role for us at Sainsbury’s, ensuring we are well set up for our customers wherever they choose to shop with us”

stated Sainsbury’s in coverage of the awards ceremony on social media.
