Pieter Vandevelde , VP APAC

With technology revolutionising almost all the business functions from marketing to customer relationship management, businesses are taking the path of digitisation. However, one function that still remains manual to a large extent is supply chain management. Beyond large high-tech ventures and technology start-ups, many businesses have simply been overlooking these functions in terms automation and digitisation, which remains a major setback. As per a 2016 study conducted by Boston Consulting Group, leaders in digital supply chain management have up to 110 percent higher operating margins and up to 64 percent fewer cash conversion days. Digital supply chain management is more connected, intelligent, scalable and rapidly deployed than traditional methods. And that’s what motivates DSI to provide mobile-first digital supply chain software solutions.
