Results

DSSI's clients typically exceed a 200% program ROI. In the world of business, this is an unprecedented return as most companies will undertake a strategically aligned program if the ROI exceeds 20%. Two key areas drive these substantial program returns: process savings and item savings.

Our process savings have been shown to exceed those provided by alternative approaches by nearly $18 per transaction. The processing capabilities we employ positively impact sourcing, item data management, requisitioning, approvals, ordering, tracking, receipting, crib management, supplier settlement, client invoicing and reporting. These savings result from our ability to do more with less people through a highly automated e-procurement system that improves the flow, timing and quality of activities and information.

Our item savings result from comprehensive price comparisons between exact items based on manufacturer name and manufacturer part number; not substitute or similar items. Our team achieves these outstanding results by aggregating an individual client's spend from across their enterprise and, wherever possible, combining it with that of our other clients providing extraordinary sourcing leverage.
