DELPHI TO USE COVISINT TO LINK ITS SUPPLIER NETWORK
Supports Overall Supply Chain Management Strategy
 
Mich., Troy, United States

In an industry first, Delphi Automotive Systems (NYSE: DPH) announced today that it will launch a supplier portal hosted by Covisint. The portal will enable Delphi to improve supply chain efficiency by enhancing communications and data management with its more than 5,000 global suppliers. As the first supplier to host a portal application through Covisint, the automotive e-business exchange, this announcement signifies an important step forward in implementing Delphi's overall supply chain management strategy.
"This supplier portal supports our vision for an electronically-linked supply chain, and will help Delphi to support our customers' requirement for responsiveness," said J.T. Battenberg III, chairman, CEO and president, Delphi Automotive Systems. "Delphi is a strong proponent of common standards and lower-cost infrastructure to help increase the efficiency and effectiveness of our business. Covisint should help our entire supply chain take out inefficiencies by sharing production schedule information and facilitating closer work on product development. Through the Delphi supplier portal, we expect to continue to improve customer service and improve our ability to attain cost-reduction objectives via enhanced communications." Initially, Delphi will have a general supplier web site to provide a single source communication of Delphi's policies, guidelines, organizational contacts and general news designed especially for its suppliers. The next step is to provide electronic messaging capability between Delphi and its supplier organizations. Electronic messaging will be the beginning of a variety of targeted applications that will help achieve increased communication, streamlined processes and improved product quality.
