HOUSTON, May 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- DiCentral Corporation, a leading innovator in supply chain management solutions and B2B integration, today announced a technology partnership agreement with Nippon Information and Communication (NI+C), a leading information technology services firm headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. The partnership will enable NI+C to enhance their current EDI capabilities to accommodate the growing demand for outsourced B2B integration and supply chain automation.
NI+C was established in 1985 as a joint venture between NTT Corporation and IBM Japan, and has a long and successful history of assisting global companies that need to automate supply chain collaboration. Under this new partnership, DiCentral's global supply chain management solutions will be deployed in Japan and the services enabled by this technology will be sold by NI+C under their brand. The partnership comes at a pivotal time, as reliance on electronic ecosystems forces companies to adapt new processes and quickly integrate connections within their supply chain.
"DiCentral has a rich B2B integration portfolio that satisfies the needs of global businesses seeking to automate the exchange of business documents, such as purchase orders, invoices, demand forecast schedules, payments, and reconciliation-based information with banks," said Thuy Mai, CEO and founder of DiCentral. "We are capable of deploying our technology in any given region to meet the demands of the local market. We have developed technology that allows this to happen quickly, securely and seamlessly while meeting the local geographic needs of language, standards, and governmental requirements."
Markets across the spectrum are undergoing tremendous transformation and simply will not survive unless they become agile and financially relevant. Brick and mortar retailers are defending themselves against virtual storefronts. Healthcare institutions continue to be squeezed for cost control. Capital-intensive manufacturers must navigate globally, taking advantage of cost-efficient locations to construct their products.
"Some of the world's largest companies rely on NI+C to integrate their mission-critical supply chain processes," said Shizumasa Shibata, Director of NI+C. "We wanted to partner with someone with proven technology capable of addressing the emerging requirements of the clients we serve in our vertical markets. DiCentral had the right technology and business partnership model to accommodate our needs. We recognize that this is a significant growth opportunity, as companies are increasingly outsourcing this task to trusted third parties such as NI+C. We believe the partnership with DiCentral uniquely positions us to take advantage of these trends."
