“We wanted to partner with someone who understood the complexity of the dairy manufacturing process and could provide us with the traceability we required. DSI understood our business and has helped guide our staff not only with software, but with industry best practices as we have started up production.”
Wendy Wertz, Director of Finance, Maryland Virginia Cooperative. . .
“DSI’s ERP software was selected based upon its ability to provide Maryland & Virginia with the necessary visibility needed to track and monitor milk flow, production and sales in one location with the added benefit of seeing the transactions all in one database.”
Angie Williams, Administrative Office, Central Equity Milk Coop. . .
“We have been using the DSI Producer Payroll software since 2011 and have found it to be very useful within our Coop. When we first started with the DSI software, we were also opening our new location and under a very strict time schedule. For the first 9 months after going live, the DSI team continued to go above and beyond to help us stay on track while keeping us up to date with the latest news and actions within the dairy industry. We have always appreciated the promptness and helpfulness that they do for our Coop.”
Michael Myatt – General Manager, Cooperative Milk Producers Assoc. . . .
“We began using DSI’s producer payroll software in 2008 and we found that it met our producer payroll needs over the years. DSI’s customer support is very responsive. We are currently in the middle of an upgrade to our original custom payroll package that will allow us to further serve our producers’ specific needs and requests. DSI has been very helpful during this upgrade transition. DSI’s realizes their success depends on their customers’ satisfaction.”.”
Producer Payroll Manager, United Dairy, Inc. . . .
“We implemented DSI’s software seven years ago to consolidate control over our milk procurement functions. We pay producers at multiple sites and DSI’s software applications allowed us to consolidate our efforts and keep us current with regulations such as the EU Geometric Mean changes. We are very happy with DSI’s service and software.”
Wapsie Valley Creamery. . .
“DSI has consistently provided us with quality products and services while continuing to invest in globally accepted platform technologies and dairy specific functionality over the past 26 years that we have been a customer. From milk procurement through cheese production, DSI’s business software modules are truly designed for the dairy industry. Tracking plant loss at the milk component level, tracking yield variances using the Van Slyke equation and tracking product quality by vat provides us the information we need to maximize our operational efficiencies.”
Dale Brittan – CIO, Brewster Cheese Company. . . .
“DSI’s dairy software modules are designed to save our company labor hours while improving data entry accuracies. These savings are achieved from their direct data feeds between our milk truck weigh scales and their milk procurement modules and our laboratory test equipment to their Laboratory Information Management Software (LIMS) module. It is so refreshing to work with a company that understands my industry and specific dairy needs — DSI really ‘Gets It’.”
Kevin Baker – Vice President Finance, Baker Cheese. . .
“We purchased our first version of DSI’s business software in 1984. Since that time, their software has evolved in concert with the dairy industry as well as our own specific business growth needs. DSI has time after time provided real value to our company on a consistent basis.”
Steve Pelkey – Plant Manager, H.P. Hood. . .
“DSI truly knows the dairy industry. I did not expect a business software company to be able to audit my plant floor processes and map out a strategy to not only reduce my current shrink by 64% but also map out a real time plant floor to top floor shrink tracking data system as well. The time my team spent with DSI’s systems manager was money well spent.”
Bill Beene – General Manager, Deseret Dairy Products. . .
“We have been implementing many of the recommendations from DSI’s mass balance plant audit with great success! Their recommendation on our butter churn has saved us about 70 pounds of butter per run. By working with our vendors, we have been able to decrease our overfill of containers which has helped us to achieve a higher yield on our fluid milk products. Finally, from their analysis of our butterfat and protein testing we have concluded that we have over paid for protein and butterfat by approximately $85,000 in the first six months of the year. We will be purchasing the Foss FT-120 to better analyze our products. We cannot say enough about DSI and how they have helped us save money buy opening our eyes on what we needed to do to capture more of our product.
