Breukelen, the Netherlands – July 27, 2022 at 8 AM CEST – TIE Kinetix announced today a new contract with FUJIFILM Europe B.V., a leading manufacturer of high-quality (photo)graphic products, healthcare products, and high-end functional materials. Through the deployment of TIE Kinetix's FLOW Partner Automation platform, FUJIFILM's supply chain solution will move 100% to the cloud.
The contract enables FUJIFILM to further optimize their document exchange processes with trading partners by moving 100% to the cloud with a managed service agreement with TIE Kinetix. With this new solution, the trading partners of FUJIFILM Europe B.V. will continue to be able to exchange documents such as purchase orders, order confirmations, packing slips, and invoices – both digitally and fully automated.
FUJIFILM is currently in the process of transforming from a producer of only (photo)graphic products to expanding to also include healthcare products and high-quality functional materials. Within FUJIFILM Europe, the processes of logistics, IT, finance, and purchasing are centrally managed and coordinated. As an international company, close management of the supply chain is very important to FUJIFILM.
FUJIFILM chose TIE Kinetix because of the company’s long history and expertise in document flow automation in the supply chain. This collaboration highlights the growing demand for document exchange digitalization. More and more companies are moving to the cloud and handing over management of their solution to specialized managed service providers. TIE Kinetix’s FLOW platform has been developed to support exactly this and offers all suppliers (large, medium, and small businesses) the possibility to exchange documents electronically.
This document may contain expectations about the financial state of affairs and results of the activities of TIE Kinetix as well as certain related plans and objectives, and may be expressed in a variety of ways, such as ‘expects’, ‘projects’, ‘anticipates’, ‘intends’ or similar words. TIE Kinetix has based these forward-looking statements on its current expectations and projections about future events. Such expectations for the future are naturally associated with risks and uncertainties because they relate to future events, and as such depend on certain circumstances that may not arise in future. Various factors may cause real results and developments to deviate considerably from explicitly or implicitly made statements about future expectations. Such factors may for instance be changes in expenditure by companies in important markets, in statutory changes and changes in financial markets, in the salary levels of employees, in future borrowing costs, in future take-overs or divestitures and the pace of technological developments. TIE Kinetix therefore cannot guarantee that the expectations will be realized. TIE Kinetix also refuses to accept any obligation to update statements made in this document.
