CVM Solutions Announces 2014 Supplier Diversity Product Roadmap and Renewed Commitment to Customer Experience

New Delivery Model Focuses on Providing a World-Class Customer Experience While Continuing to Deliver Best-in-Class Supplier Diversity Technology, Supplier Data and Services, Supported by an Aggressive Product Roadmap

OAKBROOK TERRACE, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 02/18/14 -- CVM Solutions, a premier provider of supplier diversity software, supplier data and services, today announced its product roadmap for 2014 which supports its continuing commitment to provide supplier data, supplier diversity technology and Tier-2 supplier management services. CVM also announced a re-alignment of its leadership team and reporting structure to drive improvements to customer experience.

"To further strengthen our industry leadership position, we are expanding our best-in-class supplier diversity technology capabilities in 2014 and enhancing our flagship Tier-2 diversity spend reporting system," said Brendan Taylor, managing director, CVM Solutions. "We are also pleased to announce that we are re-doubling our efforts to ensure that CVM clients are 'delighted' and have re-designed our organizational structure to support this goal. I have named Ashlee Nelson to lead the newly formed Product, Marketing and Sales organization which has ultimate responsibility for the customer experience."

Ms. Nelson has organized a new CVM Account Management team which will provide clients with a single CVM point of contact responsible for ensuring implementation success and ongoing satisfaction with their CVM products and services. Ms. Nelson joined CVM in 2005 and has worked as the director of data services, the director of client success and was the top senior account executive for 2012 and 2013. She has nearly 15 years of experience in supply chain and supplier diversity, and has held supplier diversity manager positions at HSBC and Pfizer.

CVM 2014 Product Roadmap

CVM pioneered the development of the first comprehensive Tier-2 Spend Reporting platform in the industry and has incorporated a product update for improved usability, reporting and training for 2014. Used by over 3,000 prime suppliers to report diverse spend, the system design has flexibility that allows the Tier-2 spend reporting tool to match diversity program guidelines with real-time diversity status verification using CVM's diversity database to ensure the reliability of diverse spend.

CVM is working on an enhancement for the Tier-2 platform that will allow primes reporting diverse spend to multiple customers on our platform to 'report once.'

In addition to this significant product enhancement, CVM's 2014 product roadmap will include new Tier 2 platform capabilities and two completely new offerings -- Global Supplier Registration and Supplier Hub registration portal -- designed to facilitate access and improve usability.

Global Registration will be enabled by a single registration portal where all current and prospective diverse suppliers can register regardless of where they are located. CVM plans to create country specific registration wizards for each country in which either WEConnect International or NMSDC Global currently have a presence.

Supplier Hub is designed to serve the supplier community by providing a large source of supplier data for easy access by clients. Enterprises today are constantly challenged to find and contract with new and diverse suppliers in order comply with corporate and governmental guidelines. Supplier Hub enables these enterprises to expand and strengthen their supply chains to meet supplier diversity and other requirements.

CVM's clients benefit from the ease and simplicity of the Supplier Hub Registration process where supplier information is updated and authenticated, then automatically shared with -- and made easily accessible by means of -- standard CVM supplier database features and functions, including Data Enrichment and Supplier Locator.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend.
