Schneider Electric moves into digital age with OpenText

09 Jun 15

Schneider Electric has selected OpenText to deliver B2B workflow management and enable its global supply chain platform.

Schneider Electric currently has an annual turnover in excess of $24 billion, and more than 150,000 employees worldwide.

Building on the success of its initial implementation, Schneider Electric has expanded its relationship with OpenText, using the OpenText Managed Services as the basis of the company’s global supply chain platform.

Philippe Azoulay, Schneider Electric director IT supply chain, says, "Schneider Electric was looking for a reliable partner offering a Business-to-Business (B2B) workflow management platform in the cloud, and able to work with us across our global operations. 

“OpenText is a natural partner, and its expertise in B2B integration and the high quality service provided were key criteria for our decision to expand the deployment.”

Schneider Electric’s common supply chain platform across the group allows for the critical exchange of information between B2B logistics providers worldwide, along with the introduction of new types of processes such as interbank cash transfers.

The Managed Services solution from OpenText will be the complementary foundation to the OpenText Process Suite solution already in place, allowing Schneider Electric to define business process standards with all logistics providers and business applications.

"The challenge will be to scale the solution to allow the exchange of information across more than one hundred information systems, whilst meeting critical time constraints,” says Azoulay.

"With OpenText, we will simplify, transform and accelerate the implementation and deployment of integration services, allowing our logistics providers to securely share information flows globally, while reducing our total cost of ownership.”
