Cloud applications specialist, Infor, has announced that Office Depot, Inc., plans to implement GT Nexus Commerce Network solutions.
Infor said its solutions will enhance Office Depot’s operational systems capabilities and transportation management, which will improve service levels while reducing cost by providing visibility to their shipments and goods for their direct import supply chain.
“Infor’s global operations platform allows us to improve our supply chain automation so we can react faster, be more agile, and have greater control over our direct import operations,” said Rick DiMaio, vice president of supply chain for Office Depot, Inc.
“By enhancing our inventory management, it will ultimately lead to a better customer experience.”
Infor customers using the company’s commerce network will have access to Procure-to-Pay tools that automate the supply chain transaction process on a multi-tenant, multi-enterprise platform in the cloud.
Infor says this allows users to negotiate and confirm orders with suppliers and trading partners, create electronic fulfillment documents, and track inventory and payments in real-time.
“The future belongs to networked companies, and the supply chain is at the centre of any retailer’s success,” said Corey Tollefson, senior vice president and general manager, Infor Retail.
“We are excited to partner with industry leaders such as Office Depot to support their growth and provide them with the competitive advantage necessary to succeed in such a competitive marketplace.”
