ToolsGroup and NTT DATA Embark on New Partnership, Raising the Standard for Supply Chain Digital Transformation
BOSTON – December 20, 2023 – ToolsGroup, a global leader in retail and supply chain planning and optimization software, and NTT DATA, a global digital business and IT services leader, have announced a new global partnership that will expand opportunities for organizations to make smart, efficient supply chain digital transformation decisions, supported by leading AI-driven technology and industry expertise.
“At ToolsGroup, we are constantly looking for new ways to apply our industry-leading software to help companies navigate uncertainty,” said Mauro Adorno, ToolsGroup VP Global Alliances. “We’re deeply invested in developing AI that keeps our customers at the vanguard of supply chain best practices, and we seek out partners whose skill and expertise can only enhance our customers’ experience and success. That’s why we’re delighted to partner with NTT DATA. Together, we provide the solutions, industry know-how, and change management experience that will reshape how companies approach and achieve successful digital transformation.”
The ToolsGroup-NTT DATA partnership is already bringing value to one of the largest paint distributors in the APAC region, optimizing working capital investment in inventory, enhancing customer satisfaction, and improving internal efficiencies.
“NTT DATA’s supply chain consulting practice is built on fact-based strategies that leverage the analytics, expertise, and market intelligence that help organizations thrive amid volatility,” said Neelesh Asati, VP of Supply Chain Consulting, NTT DATA Services. “In ToolsGroup, we found a partner whose technological prowess and supply chain experience complements our own drive to help companies understand the impacts, nuances, and benefits of supply chain management in this new commercial landscape. We look forward to providing our mutual customers with a holistic approach to supply chain that marries technology with a people-first mentality, molding digital transformation to be a tool for success at all levels of the organization.”
Both companies are also proud to be Microsoft partners, with ToolsGroup having recently won Microsoft’s Best ISV Partner Award for the third year running and NTT DATA becoming a Microsoft Global System Integrator Partner this past August. This adds further value for companies looking for top-of-the-line solutions backed by powerful collaboration from top names in supply chain and technology.
