Order Processing and Invoicing System – A De-icing Salt Supplier
DSS is a leading provider of snow-melting salt. The Elgin, Illinois-based company sells road salt to consumers, townships, and snow plowing businesses. DSS has offices, depots, and mines around the U.S.
DSS used custom-developed proprietary software to run the day-to-day operations of its business. The software tracked customers, vendors, contracts, incoming inventory, customer orders, invoicing, and payables.
As the business grew, staff members had to continue to do normal day-to-day labor-intensive tasks, but with less time. Two of these tasks include maintaining tax rates for hundreds of different townships, and entering vendor payables into two separate systems.
DSS hired alligatortek to help streamline and automate their day-to-day operations. Labor intensive tasks that were subject to human error were eliminated. Company staff members are now happier and more productive. Accounting books are now less error prone.
DSS is now able to meet IRS tax requirements without spending countless hours maintaining tax rates. Also, an interface was created to automate the entering of vendor payables into the Great Plains Accounting software.
