At many firms, small categories of spend can be experiencing the largest increases in cost and these may firms lack the time, the volume and the automation to receive the most competitive pricing.
Mechanicsburg, PA (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
Puridiom, a leading Procure-to-Pay solution provider, announced today that Dennis Toohey, Puridiom Director of Solutions, has been named a Provider Pro to Know by the Supply & Demand Chain Executive. Mr. Toohey is honored to be recognized by the Supply Chain Industry as an individual who helps his supply chain clients and the supply chain community prepare to meet industry challenges.
Honoring the supply chain’s best and brightest, Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s “Pros to Know” include professionals proactively working to improve their business’s functions in a number of categories—including manufacturing and production output; procurement; logistics; risk mitigation strategies; sourcing; financial operations; packaging and distribution; transportation; and much more.
The Supply & Demand Chain Executive Editorial and Advisory Board members selects provider Pros to Know from close to 400 entries. The prestigious listing is released annually and highlights providers who continue to develop the tools and strategies needed to enable organizations manage the supply chain.
“The number of issues that can present themselves in one’s business truly run the gamut—from a dysfunctional product component found within a manufacturer’s tier three level of the supply chain to clarifying a business’s procurement strategy for reduced costs,” said Barry Hochfelder, Editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine. “It’s not always initially clear as to how broad the scale of the supply chain and its challenges really is. If there are those present in the industry who are working to overcome such issues and grow the global supply chain at the same time, they should get the recognition they deserve for their achievements.”
As a 20-year procurement veteran and former user of the Puridiom Procure-to-Pay solution, Dennis brings a unique perspective on procurement automation awareness to manufacturing, health plan organizations, private education, and non-profit organizations. A believer in using technology to reduce cost, Dennis wrote and for two years taught a course on this subject in the Graduate Business School University Wisconsin Madison. Today he leads the development of the Puridiom eMarketplace and continues to consult with Puridiom clients on Procure-to-Pay best practices.
Dennis believes that firms today are facing unprecedented pressure on profit margins and purchased materials and services costs. “At many firms,” says Dennis, “small categories of spend can be experiencing the largest increases in cost and these may firms lack the time, the volume and the automation to receive the most competitive pricing. The Puridiom Marketplace was created to allow firms to pool volumes with Marketplace suppliers within the Puridiom software and workflow.”
