Global Retailer Perfects Value Chain

Our 100-member team on this project completely overhauled the client's value chain. The new system components included new enterprise information management software, supply chain changes, future state ordering, receiving process consolation and a new EIS (executive information management system).

Large U.S. Apparel Marketer

Our team performed end-to-end testing of a new application from Raymark, a Cognizant partner and leading global provider of integrated retail software solutions. Upon successful test completion, the application was rolled out to our client’s U.S. stores.

Department Store Merchandise Management

We partnered with store management to create a merchandising enhancement “factory” that helped implement critical business changes, optimize resource load and standardize quick product-turnarounds. Our team’s services included testing, assessment, implementation and rollout.

World’s Largest Online Marketplace

Our team re-engineered the Web site to make full use of next-generation solutions, including a J2EE-based architecture. The e-commerce application runs on IBM WebSphere and interacts with JDA for order management and fulfillment.
