EXTON, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- Elemica, the leading Supply Chain Operating Network provider for the process industries, announces that The Dow Chemical Company is celebrating reaching the implementation of their 1000th QuickLink Email Trading Partner. QuickLink Email automates inbound fax and email orders into electronic formats and data values that Dow's ERP system can understand and process automatically. This removes manual order entry; improving order accuracy and increasing overall order-to-cash productivity.
"Elemica helps power Dow's business processes and interactions across our extended supply chain," said Ron Larson, OTC Message Automation Leader at The Dow Chemical Company. "The QuickLink Email solution has been key to automating orders from the long tail of customers faxing and emailing their orders into Dow. Ensuring the success of the solution has been a highly collaborative effort, and I am delighted to be recognizing our accomplishments with a 'QuickLink Email 1,000 Celebration' event at our corporate headquarters."
Integrating Dow customer orders without requiring them to have integration software or other sophisticated technological capabilities is a reality with QuickLink Email. Automating previously un-automatable fax and email orders ensures greater order accuracy. Instead of focusing on order entry, QuickLink Email enables the Dow customer service team to focus more energy on higher value core competencies and delivering superior customer service.
"Dow signing their 1000th QuickLink Email partner is a significant milestone and demonstrates the commitment Dow has to being an industry leader in perfect order performance to deliver the best experience possible to their customers," said Rick Bushnell, VP of Strategic Accounts at Elemica. "Our long-term relationship with Dow signifies their belief in our state-of-the-art technology and innovative business process applications, helping them conduct business in a less costly, faster, and more efficient way."
The "QuickLink Email 1,000 Celebration" takes place in Midland, Michigan on Wednesday, September 24th, 2014. During the celebration event, key contributors from around the globe will be recognized for Dow's implementation efforts and success of the solution. Leaders from both Dow and Elemica will be on-hand to personally recognize each team member for their accomplishments.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
