Two companies will work together to deliver supply chain offerings to customers
French global IT services company Capgemini and in cloud supply chain technology provider GT Nexus have signed a joint go-to-market BPO initiative to enable Supply Chain Orchestration.
As per the agreement, the two companies will work together to deliver supply chain offerings to customers across both North America and Europe, enabled by the GT Nexus technology platform.
Capgemini said this collaboration strengthens its supply chain network capabilities and its role as an independent provider of orchestrated supply chain services to the sectors like consumer package goods, manufacturing, telecommunications and others connecting them with shippers, warehouses, freight agents, financial institutions and logistics service providers through a managed services network.
Within supply chains, "single page" information model means that the orders, shipments, products, invoices, payments and supply chain events in the "on the ground" physical supply chain are represented in just one, over-arching informational supply chain in the cloud, so that entire partner networks can view and operate against a single version, said Capgemini.
Under this agreement, the two companies will provide joint on-demand offerings to facilitate collaboration and visibility of trade and logistics operations across global networks in the cloud, using the "single page" information model, said Cpgemini.
Capgemini will bring Supply Chain Orchestration managed service offerings, global Rightshore resources and Platform offerings and GT Nexus will offer its cloudbased collaboration platform to help companies take advantage of the cloud to improve business agility.
The collaboration helps Capgemini’s BPO Supply Chain orchestration capability to provide customers with: End to End process control, visibility and traceability, Enhanced Return on Capital Employed (ROCE), reduction in operating costs, increases in efficiencies and improvement in Cost of Supply Chain Operations whilst maintaining the balance of Service and Quality, said the company.
Capgemini BPO head of Supply Chain Services vice-president David Poole said Capgemini is expanding its Supply Chain services providing orchestration, independent and collaborative capabilities for supply chain optimisation to the enterprises.
GT Nexus EVP and cofounder Greg Johnsen said increasingly, customers are looking for a single point of contact and control for managed services, and information systems and services are typically included in the offering bundle.
"Our agreement with Capgemini allows us to reach a broader customer base that will benefit from a truly strategic and unified business solution," added Johnsen.
