Supply chains

Every organisation, whether in the public, private or third sector, relies on other  organisations. Companies, particularly, of all sizes such complex relationships with suppliers across the world that they are more a supply web than a supply chain. Managing this complexity, and using it to your commercial advantage rather than simply avoiding disaster, is an area which DCA has expertise that can help you.

Management

DCA has developed a unique tool that will help to manage complex supply chains, including managing environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks. Initially developed for the office products industry, the tool is applicable to industries as diverse as automotive, construction, FMCG and paper. The tool also integrates with many reporting systems, and can help your business achieve compliance with external standards like SA 8000 and ISO 26000.

Innovation

Companies are under increasing pressure to innovate at the same time as supply chains are being squeezed by economic factors. Using the expertise that DCA has developed over more than a decade, corporations have been able to seeing suppliers as partners that can help them deliver a better service to their customers. This includes developing new business models, particularly around servitisation and the circular economy, creating new enablers for efficient purchasing and using our unique engagement tool to remove barriers that add cost to procurement.
