Oakland, Calif. − GT Nexus has signed an agreement to provide HP with cloud-based global supply chain visibility and a logistics control platform. The networked, multi-enterprise solution is designed to connect HP's network of logistics providers and suppliers across four continents in a single source of supply chain information for orders, inventory, shipments and documents.
The business applications will deliver supply chain visibility across different HP product supply chains, while the transportation control layer capabilities help HP coordinate among regional 3PLs to optimize inventory flows and consolidate shipments. The enhanced capabilities support initiatives designed to maximize direct shipping to customers, transportation spend reduction and dynamic inventory fulfillment, said GT Nexus.
The agreement supports HP's Global Supply Chain Transformation initiative. "We partnered with GT Nexus because of their leadership in bringing supply chain business processes and data flows together in the cloud," said Tony Prophet, senior vice president PPS Operations for HP, in a statement. "Cloud-enabled agile networks will be a core element of our continuing supply chain transformation."
HP operates one of the biggest and most complex supply chains in the industry with operations in 170 countries. According to GT Nexus, every sixty seconds, HP delivers four servers, 120 PCs and 100 printers to global customers.
"Our strategic relationship with HP is very significant," said Sean Feeney, GT Nexus CEO, in a statement. "HP is the leader in the global technology space and as our multi-tenant industry backed network continues to grow, the presence of the number one IT supply chain further solidifies GT Nexus as the standard for global supply chain management and commerce across industries."
