The Digital Readiness Assessment

What's a DRA?

The Digital Readiness Assessment (DRA) is our approach to creating a strategy that gets your program ready to enable direct supplier connections.  Utilizing DTC's proprietary 7-step process, each assessment will provide you with: 


- An evaluation of your current T&E processes, including process optimization opportunities,


- A comprehensive list of your company's savings opportunities,  


- A clear digital strategy, including a roadmap of your next steps.


DTC will be your architect and builder of the digital bridge to your suppliers that will take your T&E program to the next level. 


DTC believes we are “better together!"
