News Release -- December 07, 2010
Unique Cloud-Based Offering Built on Force.com Platform
SAN FRANCISCO – Dreamforce 2010 – Dec. 7 – CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced its latest cloud offering, CloudSRM, an enterprise supplier relationship management (SRM) solution built on salesforce.com’s enterprise cloud computing platform, Force.com. CloudSRM improves operational performance of the purchasing and procurement function within organizations by providing an integrated toolset and knowledge base that delivers bottom line savings to organizations across multiple industries. The announcement was made today at Dreamforce 2010.
“Incremental savings and significant improvement in purchasing competencies and skills are results you can expect with CloudSRM,” said Siki Giunta, vice president, Cloud Computing and Software Services, CSC. “With only an Internet connection required, buyers gain real-time and tangible benefits. CloudSRM operationalizes best practices for purchasing professionals and is complementary to industry leading ERP solutions.”
CloudSRM leverages CSC’s 20 years of experience and best practices with business process consulting and makes it available through a low-cost, intuitive and integrated tool. The solution can be easily integrated with ERP systems to increase overall productivity and agility of the purchasing function. It also fills in the gaps of existing SRM solutions, addressing critical operational issues including:
- Monitoring tools that fail to make sustainable improvements in buyer performance
- Inadequate business intelligence and tracking tools that enable buyers to develop and manage strategic supplier relationships
- Lack of integrated internal client collaboration and evaluation tools
As with all CSC Trusted Cloud Solutions, CloudSRM uses CSC’s Business-First approach to planning and deployment, ensuring the move to a virtual SRM solution will deliver all planned benefits to the business. The solution includes the initial configuration, customer support and training; with optional CSC services including customization of the tool set to meet unique requirements and integration with an existing ERP system.
