Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has chosen GXS Managed Services to enable it to continue to work with more electronic data interchange (EDI) based suppliers around the world.
The suite of outsourcing services provided by GXS has been designed to offer ongoing management and maintenance of JLR global B2B e-commerce network and transactions.
After being divested from Ford Motor Company and sold to India’s largest vehicle manufacturer, Tata Motors Limited, JLR wanted to re-establish its EDI-based, B2B e-commerce operation without any delays in production or supply chain operations.
JLR has suppliers throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The software allows it to automate the movement, translation and validation of messages.
Jon Keating, vice-president of GXS EMEA, said: “Maximising cost savings is part of the picture for nearly every company in Europe right now. But that is not the whole story. There is an increased interest in B2B outsourcing as companies review how best to harness their IT and supply chain infrastructures.
“GXS Managed Services enables businesses like Jaguar Land Rover to be ready to tap into new market opportunities whenever and wherever they emerge across the globe.”
