Taking a cue from the furniture industry, Design Trade Service (DTS) has figured out how to simplify the complex task of placing an order for a client. The resulting streamlined process allows designers to combine multiple orders from various vendors into one order. The result is a less costly order, and a smoother experience.
DTS has recently augmented its ecommerce staff with three new executives. Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Greg Wyers and Vice President of Sales and Marketing Betsy Wittenberg are both seasoned professionals in their fields. The company has also secured $3 million in investment funding through Carofin.
Despite the plethora of online home furnishings distributors, DTS stands out in a crowded field.

The company also touts a proprietary e-commerce platform that streamlines the ordering process.
Statistics on international supply of services by mode of supply
Detailed statistics on international supply of services by mode of supply is a key need of trade policy makers. Such detailed data would help trade negotiators to identify service sector weaknesses and strengths. This information would also be useful for monitoring the effects of services trade agreements.
Various approaches to measure international trade in services by mode of supply have been identified. However, the growing importance of services trade is not matched by the level of statistical detail required by policymakers. Several exploratory studies have identified that the best approach is to gather data through existing survey activities.
The United Nations Statistical Division and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) served as the secretariat of the Task Force. They developed the Manual on Statistics of International Trade in Services, a joint publication of six agencies. The Manual categorizes services traded internationally and includes detailed descriptions of the four modes of supply. It also takes account of comments from world-wide consultations.
