Aug. 16, 2002

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. received CIO magazine's CIO-100 Award for its integrated information technology strategy.

The 2002 CIO-100 awards honor organizations worldwide "that demonstrate excellence in using integrated processes and technologies to improve products, services and relationships with partners and clients," according to Goodyear.

"Now, more than ever, companies rely on integrated applications that freely share information," says Abbie Lundberg, editor of CIO magazine. "This year's CIO-100 award recipients are being honored because their companies developed an integrated enterprise to enhance their business, from improving relationships with customers to creating a seamless value chain."

Eric Berg, Goodyear's vice president of e-commerce and chief information officer, says the company's global information technology strategy is centered on meeting business needs through integrated solutions. "This allows us greater economies of scale and gives us the ability to better serve our local consumers."
