Similarly, for a global frozen‑foods giant, we helped create a comprehensive Web solution. It maximized online order volume and implemented a streamlined customer e‑loyalty system.
We successfully migrated the entire application portfolio for this company to the latest service oriented architecture, resulting in a 25% increase in efficiency and a 20% reduction in operating costs.
For a leading consumer electronics retailer, Cognizant developed a customized Warehouse Management System and rebuilt the shop-floor control system. We also developed interfaces for JDA Manugistics modules to provide replenishment services to the data centers. Moreover, we routinely handle bug fixes and enhancements to applications used by the chain’s finance, merchandise, retail and commerce business units.
We implemented a promotion execution system for a leading single-source marketing services company to help track promotion compliance. Related goals were to measure promotion effectiveness, manage in-store merchandising campaigns and process merchandising campaigns for customers.
The new system enhanced visibility into in-store execution and enabled more effective tracking of promotion compliance. It also provided a single consolidated solution for different lines of business.
