We First Rocked Around the Clock 60 Years Ago Today …

… but how long have you been rockin’ your supply chain?

As Christopher Sciacca insists, supply chains don’t have to be boring. You don’t have to sing the blues. You can twist and shout.

Put your glad rags on and join me, hun,
We’ll have some fun when the clock strikes one
We’re gonna save some money tonight.
We’re gonna save, save, save ’til broad daylight

Modern e-Sourcing Technology allows you to identify savings you never knew existed.
Spend Analysis and Decision Optimization identify year-over-year savings in excess of 10% when properly deployed.
New market intelligence solutions identify changing commodity prices in near real time.
Six Sigma and Lean solutions allow you to improve processes to reduce manpower costs.

When the clock strikes two, three and four,
if the float goes down we’ll save some more
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We’re gonna add value ’til broad daylight

Visibility solutions identify potential risk and allow for mitigation and prevention.
Sustainable options increase brand value and minimize long-term costs.
Recognized brands add value to your own.

When the chimes ring five, six and seven,
we’ll be right in seventh heaven.
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We’re gonna innovate ’til broad daylight

Collaboration tools allow for joint product design.
VMI allows for joint inventory management.
e-Document Management allows for procurement and sales support.

When it’s eight, nine, ten, eleven too,
I’ll be goin’ strong and so will you.
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We’re gonna start again at broad daylight

Savings, Value Generation, Innovation is a continuous process — and supply chains support it!

We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight!
