CGS BlueCherry® customers will benefit from cutting-edge EDI technology
TIE Kinetix announced today that they have entered a five-year value-added reseller (VAR) agreement with Computer Generated Solutions (CGS) to enhance CGS’s end-to-end supply chain platform, BlueCherry®, with the implementation of cloud-based EDI technology and optional VAN support. The upgrade aims to accelerate digital transformation initiatives for new and existing BlueCherry® users in the retail industry, specifically fashion.
The agreement accelerates TIE Kinetix’s core initiative to help businesses eliminate blockers and achieve 100% digitalization in their supply chains. In line with the company’s ambition, CGS BlueCherry® fits the increasingly preferred ‘no-code, low-code’ software model and delivers digital transformation at speed with its highly configurable application-based modules. TIE Kinetix’s cloud-based EDI solution, FLOW Partner Automation, enhances the platform by introducing next-level document exchange capabilities for increased speed and greater transparency across operations. Moreover, TIE Kinetix will provide VAN support to CGS BlueCherry® users for an additional fee.
Jan Sundelin, CEO, TIE Kinetix, says “To support evolving business needs, especially in the dynamic and fast-paced fashion industry, supply chain solutions must be flexible and easy to implement. With FLOW now fully integrated within the BlueCherry® platform, there are no limitations for document exchange. Users benefit from a truly scalable EDI solution that is built to adapt.”
The CGS BlueCherry® VAR agreement supports TIE Kinetix’s strategic partnership focus and strengthens the company’s market position in the retail industry, one of its primary goals for this year. During the five-year contract period (with optional year-by-year extensions thereafter), CGS will promote and sell TIE Kinetix solutions to their entire customer base, which includes, but is not limited to, BlueCherry® users.
The baseline contract is valued at approximately $600,000 over five years. However, TIE Kinetix anticipates an additional $1 million in revenue per year from VAN contracts.
