Wipro will support Morrisons objective of delivering planning, management and delivery of large scale systems and process change based on an Oracle ERP platform.

"This is more than a systems replacement program," says Gary Barr, CIO, Morrisons. "It is a business change program enabled by the replacement of the existing IT systems, in order to support the continued and future growth of the business."

Wipro Retail was chosen after extensive market testing and Morrisons' positive experience of working with them as part of the program planning and scoping phase. "When we looked at the Oracle Implementation references, they all said that we should be speaking to Wipro Retail," says Phil Goodwin, program director, Morrisons. "We decided to shortlist Wipro Retail based on such strong feedback. During Planning & Scoping we allocated project streams to different potential partners; Wipro Retail impressed us most with their agility, quality of people and their cultural fit. We are confident that they have the capability to meet the future needs of Morrisons."
