Dynamic Computer Corporation Launches a Scoring Methodology for Calculating and Ranking Supply Chain Risk Exposure

Dynamic Computer Corporation | March 24, 2021

Dynamic Computer Corporation (DCC) today announced the release of its Dynamic Supply Chain Risk Scoring methodology (SM), a patented risk management process that defines possible supply chain risks and provides best-practice mitigating solutions based on scoring performance. Dynamic Supply Chain Risk ScoringSM, tailored to consumer demands, offers detailed insights into the capabilities and shortcomings of every technological supply chain, empowering realistic, actionable insights and objective decision-making. A variety of large, well-known organizations has now successfully validated the latest scoring process. In announcing its formal launch, Dynamic's CEO and President, Farida Ali, noted that "Our supply chain risk scoring is based on the company's 40 years of experience in helping companies to optimize their product supply and meet their customers' needs. Supply chain stability is essential to achieve internal peace of mind and customer confidence, and our scoring process delivers both of those outcomes." Dynamic Supply Chain Risk ScoringSM is based on a rigorous process involving: • Extensive examination of the Bill of Materials (BOM) and the supply chains involved with each material; • Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FEMA) is being used to evaluate 5 major risk categories. • Identification of any flaws or vulnerabilities, as well as the assigning of Risk Priority Numbers (RPNs) to each of the 5 risk categories; • A detailed written overview of the risk scoring enables clients to proactively minimize possible threats to their technology supply chain. The Dynamic scoring process is especially beneficial for businesses in complex, heavily controlled industries such as medical devices, aerospace, and defense. Companies who participated in the initial tests indicated that Dynamic Supply Chain Risk ScoringSM addressed an unmet need in supply chain risk management. About Dynamic Computer Corporation Dynamic Computer Corporation, established in 1979, is widely regarded as the industry pioneer in sourcing, measuring, configuring, and obsolescence transformations for electronic technology in highly regulated industries. Dynamic offers asset and lifecycle management services as a cohesive, reliable, and managed approach.

Warehowz Launches Self-Service for Flexible, On-Demand Warehousing

Warehowz | October 06, 2021

Warehowz, a cloud-based, on-demand warehousing marketplace, has launched a new self-service solution that enables businesses to find affordable, flexible warehouse space in as little as 24 hours. Warehowz's enhanced capabilities automatically match businesses in need of storage and fulfillment solutions with available space in over 1,500 warehouses throughout North America. "Our solution allows businesses to find and contract with a quality warehouse in the same day," said Darrell Jervey, founder and CEO of Warehowz. "We are revolutionizing the way businesses and warehouses work together by improving the processes that take the most time and cause the greatest friction." Without Warehowz's self-service capabilities, businesses must manually navigate through evaluating the quality and reliability of the warehouse, as well as comparing varied pricing structures. This often requires significant time for phone or email communication with warehouse personnel before transactions are executed. In addition to benefiting businesses, Warehowz's innovative self-service solution enables warehouses and 3PLs to pick and choose the projects they desire while simultaneously marketing their services and facility to a large audience of prospective customers. Warehouses save time on sales and negotiations and avoid implementing duplicative software. This symbiotic relationship is precisely why Warehowz's marketplace strategy differs from other incumbents in the industry and why self-serve is poised to accelerate growth for the company in the next 12 to 18 months. Warehowz has created a seamless self-service search process on the Warehowz marketplace. Businesses outline criteria, such as product type, location, project duration and more. Warehowz uses its matching algorithm to connect the user with fully vetted facilities who then provide quotes in a format that allows for side-by-side cost comparisons across standardized rate categories. Users select the quote and provider, and contracts are automatically generated. All payments are facilitated through Warehowz's marketplace. Businesses with questions can connect directly with the facility or with Warehowz. Warehowz's self-service offering comes at a time when businesses are managing significant supply chain disruptions, shrinking warehouse availability, and soaring warehouse rates. Warehowz empowers retailers and suppliers to make better and faster decisions without being hindered by long-term leases, costly minimums, or large-scale software implementations. About Warehowz Warehowz's cloud-based marketplace connects businesses in need of storage and fulfillment services with warehouses with available space. Easy, Flexible, Reliable.
