Leading cloud and managed service provider Nexon Asia Pacific (Nexon) will deliver a business solution to help Independent Purchasing Company Asia Pacific (IPC Asia Pacific) create efficiencies and launch a platform for growth through a 5 year partnership agreement.
IPC Asia Pacific is the purchasing, supply chain and services company responsible for negotiating supply contracts, managing deliveries, providing technology and support services for more than 3400 Subway restaurants within the Asia Pacific region.
IPC Asia Pacific harnessing Nexon cloud services
Looking to replace their existing business applications, IPC Asia Pacific sought out a trusted partner to deliver an end-to-end operating solution, selecting the Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform following a detailed market review process.
IPC Asia Pacific C.E.O Duane Barber believes Nexon’s approach will transform the company’s internal operations, building an innovative technology stack that will enable IPC Asia Pacific to continue to leverage cloud-based solutions through a flexible and extensible platform.
“As one of the largest buyers of food and services across the region, access to real time data is critical in our decision making,” Mr Barber said.
“This platform is the next phase in our vision to ensure that we meet the demands of the franchisee of the future. Transformation of our core platforms is key to this evolution.”
The technology solution is designed to be integrated with every touch point of the business, from accounting, to supply chain, retail technology, loyalty, communications and the contracts and procurement teams, right through to a sandwich cost calculator that enables the business to determine the cost of any Sub, down to the last cent.
