Sydney, Australia -- Wipro Ltd. announced that it has won a “transformational IT applications and infrastructure engagement” from 7-Eleven in Australia.
The solution is aimed at paving the way for a company-wide retail process re-engineering at 7-Eleven to enable it to launch new merchandise categories, improve the efficiency of existing merchandise categories, initiate real-time targeted promotions, and easily on-board new processes during mergers and acquisitions. All of these will result in an enhanced experience for the customers of 7-Eleven in Australia, Wipro said.
The integrated engagement includes the upgrade, migration and consolidation of 7-Eleven's IT applications and infrastructure, which will help improve speed and agility of its go-to-market initiatives. Wipro will implement SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA for this project, making this one of the first implementations of the SAP for retail solution portfolio on the SAP HANA platform across Asia Pacific & Japan.
The aim of this project is to improve business functionality at 7-Eleven through the deployment of a consolidated, real-time transactional and reporting infrastructure. Powered by the cutting-edge SAP HANA platform, it will also set the foundation for predictive customer analytics, to forecast and manage the retailer's future business requirements.
Michael Peck, CIO for 7-Eleven, said: “Wipro has been a strategic technology partner to 7-Eleven since November 2012, and is working with 7-Eleven to deliver a number of transformational technology projects. One of these projects is the implementation of new infrastructure so we can flex our development environments on demand to support multiple business initiatives. In addition, we are upgrading our current IT environment to run the latest versions of SAP software, including implementing SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA. We are pleased to be working with Wipro on this project, which we anticipate will deliver positive outcomes for our franchisees and customers."
