MVP One successfully renewed its Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) Certification. As a woman-owned, operated, controlled, and managed business, MVP One, a maintenance and reliability engineering software and services company, is one of over 18,000 WBEs certified by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), according to the council’s 2021 annual report.
The WBE certification is one of many initiatives and resources the council offers. By supporting female entrepreneurs and business owners, WBENC hopes to promote equality in the workplace while also stimulating economic growth.
Ruth Hughes worked as an MP2 CMMS software training consultant before founding MVP One in 2000. As the company’s CEO, she says she is proud WBENC has recognized MVP One for the diversity of its leadership.
“The WBE certification is important to me because it shows organizations who are interested in doing business with us that a woman has the majority ownership and control of the company.”
By implementing customer-requested features, MVP One CMMS is one of the best CMMS software packages available on the market today. And the proof is in the pudding; for the past 5 years, Plant Engineering named MVP One CMMS Product of the Year Award in the Maintenance Software category and was nominated again this year!
The council's WBE certification is one of four initiatives that support the company's mission. WBENC‘s most recent annual report details its “CORE Platform,” which provides female-owned businesses with networking opportunities to connect, educational resources to learn, and motivational programs to succeed.
