AVE was honored for outstanding performance at Cartus Corporation’s 2013 Global Network Conference held October 21-23 in Dallas, Tex. Cartus Global Network is Cartus’ industry-leading worldwide service provider network. Each year, Cartus recognizes the companies and individuals in the Network who have provided extraordinary service to its customers and clients worldwide.

AVE was named winner of the Global Network Silver Supplier Innovation Award. This award is presented to a supplier whose application demonstrated either significant cost savings and/or increases in service results to Cartus clients or customers.

“Service providers such as AVE make it a best practice to go above and beyond for our customers and our company, while at the same time demonstrating unparalleled dedication and performance,” said Pat DeDonato, vice president, Real Estate Services and Supply Chain Management. “As a vital extension of the Cartus team, we encourage our Global Network providers to be innovative and have created a forum for them to be recognized and share best practices. This award acknowledges AVE’s innovations and documented improvements to the Cartus business.”

AVE received the Silver Supplier Innovation Award for its microsite AVE Social. “Business travelers are demanding more mobile technology from accommodations and airports, so they can have instant information at their fingertips,” says Ashley Cerasaro, Communications Specialist for AVE. “To meet this need, AVE launched AVE Social in August 2012 to create an online gathering place for all of our communities and residents, to provide the same high level of Guest Services online as our team members do at our communities and to satisfy the growing demand for information via the web and social media.”

“An invitation to join Cartus’ Global Network is a notable honor because the program’s criteria and performance standards are so rigorous,” said Lea Anne Welsh, president of AVE and COO of Korman Communities. “We fully endorse Cartus’ dedication to providing high-quality service and are grateful to have received this prestigious designation, which further enhances our commitment to world-class service.”
