How DSC helped Lorillard transition from a legacy system to SAP
True partnership leads to error-free service

Two companies work through a significant system change with good communication and an already strong relationship. The result? In the case of Lorillard and logistics partner, DSC Logistics, the result was error-free service.

The change came about because Lorillard wanted to have tighter control over their inventory and distribution system. They chose to establish the tighter control by replacing their out-dated legacy system with their new Enterprise Requirements Planning (ERP) software, SAP. DSC partnered with Lorillard to make the transition as smooth as possible.

With a clearer vision of their inventory level versus sales forecasts, Lorillard was able to reduce inventory levels across the country. Of course, as inventory levels shrink, the importance of accuracy increases. Because of this, DSC conducts daily 100 percent inventories of their product.

We used our SAP expertise to provide Lorillard with the longest error-free stretch of service in the history of the partnership of the companies.
