Cognizant Allies with Synergy for Store Collaboration and Vendor Management

In alliance with Synergy Systems, Cognizant will implement the GlobalWorx in-store collaboration and management solution. The Software-as-a-Service platform facilitates collaboration among retailers, direct store delivery (DSD) vendors, distributors, merchandisers and service providers, and it can be accessed through tablets, smartphones and Internet-enabled computers.

GlobalWorx provides retailers with a better understanding of the service level performance of their DSD vendors, and helps reduce out-of-stocks with the ability to monitor vendor performance and quickly report service issues using tablet technology.

"As retailing shifts to an omnichannel, real-time network of suppliers and vendors, GlobalWorx helps retailers reduce store labor and supply chain costs, drive revenue and streamline operations," said Steven Skinner, vice president of the Retail Industry Practice for Cognizant Business Consulting in a statement. "GlobalWorx enhances Cognizant's deep understanding of the retail space, and helps stores, vendors and retailers leverage cloud, collaboration and tablet technology to execute retail operations with greater efficiency."
