SAP-based supply chain integration specialist FourPL and SAP partner Q Data USA have signed a strategic partnering agreement for Australia and New Zealand (ANZ). The partnership involves the sharing of capability, customer experiences and investments in research, systems and IP.
Q Data USA is a leader in the SAP Event Management and SAP BusinessObjects Event Insight field, based in North America.
“The partnership provides FourPL customers with the option to extend their capability around SAP Event Management (EM) and in particular, to be able to offer their customers improved supply chain visibility and risk reduction options,” said Anthony Hawkins, FourPL chief executive officer.
“The partnership provides global experiences and an extended customer network with access to learnings from early adopters in mature overseas markets, thought leadership and knowledge sharing, and extending the breadth of niche skills available to service customers,” he said. “FourPL will continue to bring local Australian knowledge and experience to ensure solutions meet customer requirements.”
Q Data USA’s SAP event visibility practice lead, Kevin Wilson, said the two companies share similar ideals and values.
“Together we will continue to work and grow as thought leaders in the SAP TM and SAP EM space by integrating these solutions to deliver even more value to our client’s supply chain initiatives.”
