"SupplierSoft has freed our resources to focus more effort on data analysis and due diligence activity" - Peter Clark, Senior Manager of World-Wide Compliance at Plantronics

SupplierSoft, Inc, a pioneer in cloud-computing based Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) solutions, today announced that Plantronics has chosen and successfully implemented Conflict Minerals Software.

SupplierSoft Conflict Minerals Solution helps manufacturers comply with Conflict Minerals SEC filing requirement as per section 1502 of Dodd-Frank Act. Public US companies must declare whether they have Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten or Gold (3TG) in their products and whether these metals originate from mines in one of nine covered countries in Africa, and if so, whether they are fueling civil conflict in these countries. SupplierSoft automates the Achilles Heel of Conflict Minerals Management, including supplier communication, collecting and validating supplier responses, and analytics so that companies can respond to customer inquiries or do their Form SD SEC filings, while delivering significant ROI. The software supports the industry standard Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) created by the Conflict Free Smelter Initiative (CFSI), through partnership with EICC/GeSI.

“SupplierSoft has automated many of the critical processes required to manage the inflow of Conflict Minerals Reporting Templates from our supply chain partners. By centrally managing all supplier communications, performing automated error checks and providing data analytics, it has freed our resources to focus more effort on data analysis and due diligence activity” said Peter Clark, Senior Manager of World-Wide Compliance at Plantronics.

“With the Plantronics win, along with previously announced multiple S&P companies wins, SupplierSoft continues to establish itself as a market leader for Conflict Minerals Software." said Balu Sharma, CEO of SupplierSoft. "We are honored that Plantronics chose SupplierSoft after doing an extensive review of several different software vendors, and is using the software to help manage its 2015 SEC filing.”
