DSSI Selected as Top 100 Supply Chain Solution by Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine

Southfield, May 03,2011 -- DSSI, LLC is pleased to announce it has been selected to Supply and Demand Chain Executives' Top 100. For this year's top 100, the magazine chose to highlight supply chain transformation projects that produced exceptional business results. Supply and Demand Chain Executive evaluated DSSI's implementation of a complete procurement outsourcing solution including both source to pay and integrated supply for a global construction equipment manufacturer.

Aside from creating, or greatly enhancing, the ability to track and manage enterprise-wide spend at the employee, department, plant, and cost center level, the new source to pay process delivered hard dollar savings equating to a 330% ROI in the first year of the program. DSSI's unique ability and experience in advanced strategic sourcing principles that incorporates aggregation and standardization drove much of the material and service cost reductions. In addition to these cost reductions, DSSI also manages the financial settlement process to enable a "single supplier" strategy that consolidates billing down to one weekly invoice for the client, thereby reducing working capital requirements and enabling enterprise administration of purchase order terms and conditions.

"This achievement recognizes DSSI's commitment to its customers to deliver best-in-class, procurement transformations and we are honored to receive this recognition from such a prominent supply chain magazine," said Scott Camera, vice president of business development for DSSI.
