SOUTHFIELD, Mich., March 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, DSSI, LLC, a leading provider of Source to Pay services to industrial companies, announced an expanded relationship with Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment, a global strategic and business alliance of the construction equipment businesses of Doosan Infracore Co., Ltd and its affiliates. DSSI will now be responsible for purchasing plant services including, but not limited to building, electrical, engineering, equipment and maintenance, HVAC, janitorial, paint, plumbing and robotics.
This announcement comes after a successful year of launching a Maintenance, Repairs and Operations (MRO) Source to Pay program for Doosan in North America in which Doosan realized significant item savings while gaining visibility and control over indirect spend. The program has leveraged DSSI's end-to-end purchasing service capabilities including sourcing and category management, Purchase to Pay transaction processing and on-site support services including storeroom management. DSSI's enterprise Source to Pay eProcurement system, Epic™, provides a common platform across all locations allowing Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment to manage spend across all categories.
"We look forward to taking on this expanded relationship with Doosan," said Scott Camera, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. "This is a natural extension from the standpoint that we are already purchasing the items in these categories so adding the services component will allow Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment to benefit from the same process and system efficiencies across more of their spend."
"One year ago we undertook this program in support of our internal focus on creating a lean enterprise," said Jim Adkins, Vice President of Sourcing & Supply Chain, North America & Oceania. "DSSI has provided exceptional value as a Procurement Outsourcing partner and we did not hesitate in our decision to expand their role as a purchasing service provider in the area of plant services. DSSI has demonstrated a unique ability to engage plant representatives in every aspect of implementation resulting in a reliable service model that allows our skilled people to remain focused on the activities that create additional value for our customers."
