KSR selects QStrat’s QLM Sourcing for RFx Management

Automotive supplier benefits from lean RFx procedures

Mississauga, Ontario, Canada – April 11, 2007 — QStrat, Inc., a leading provider of costing, quoting, and sourcing solutions for manufacturers has successfully implemented QLM Sourcing at KSR International, an internationally renowned supplier to automotive OEM’s.

Qstrat’s QLM Sourcing is an affordable and easy-to-use application that creates, delivers and manages RFxs painlessly and efficiently offering increased opportunities for companies to focus on finding better suppliers and reducing costs. RFQs are delivered as smart Adobe PDF’s that suppliers can respond into directly in order to submit their specifications and pricing which can then be tracked and compared in real-time. Existing and potential suppliers only need a web connection and free Adobe Reader® to respond quickly and securely.

“QLM Sourcing has dramatically improved turn-around times throughout our entire RFx process while providing greatly increased efficiencies with our global supply chain. QLM Sourcing simplifies and automates communications both internally and with our suppliers eliminating hours of clerical work” stated KSR Vice President, Fred Deshaw.

“Our team is now utilizing a much more efficient process to collaborate, deliver and evaluate RFxs. This is a significant process improvement for us from the days of managing emails, faxes and spreadsheets. QLM Sourcing is more than a great tool to compare labor, raw material, packaging, and transportation costs among suppliers. It offers a single point of truth that enables clear communication, reduced errors and improved quality.” added Deshaw
