announced its partnership with NS Solutions Corporation (TOKYO:2327), a
subsidiary company of Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation, to
expand its presence in the Japanese marketplace. Under the terms of this
new partnership, the two companies will work together to deliver
E2open's cloud-based solutions to current and future NS Solutions
"We are delighted to establish a new strategic partnership with E2open,"
said Munetaka Shashiki, Representative Director & President of NS
Solutions. "The globalization of Japanese manufacturers has increased
the complexity of the supply chain, creating an urgent market need for
more transparent, responsive supply chain management and business
execution. E2open's cloud-based solution enables collaborative process
management and execution within a short time so that companies are able
to more competitively manage supply chain operations across multiple
tiers of partners. We are excited to work with E2open to introduce this
strategic solution to the Japanese marketplace."
Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, NS Solutions has implemented enterprise
resource planning (ERP) and supply chain management (SCM) solutions for
more than 100 Japanese companies. However, as global manufacturing has
become more complex, competitive, and volatile, the need for strategic
supply cain solutions that extend beyond the four walls of the
enterprise has become more pressing. E2open and NS Solutions have
partnered to meet this growing market need.
By leveraging E2open's cloud-based solutions, NS Solutions will be able
to significantly extend the functionalities and overall value of its
customers' current global supply chain programs. E2open solutions offer
