Cognizant's Manufacturing and Logistics Practice Gains Traction with Ford in Japan
Cognizant's Domain and Technology Experts Combine Experience to Provide Logistics Solutions to Ford
 
N.J., Teaneck, United States

Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation (Nasdaq: CTSH) a leading provider of IT services, today announced that it has developed a unique port management system for Ford to support vehicle tracking, vehicle prioritization for the pre-delivery inspection operations and efficient cost management for Ford's Japan operations.

Cognizant's solution reflects the unique business processes that Ford uses for each of its different brands. Cognizant already had the basic business process framework which allowed the solution to be built in a relatively quick time frame while at the same time provided Ford the flexibility to build the special functionality which would not have been possible through off-the shelf IT packages. Cognizant's pre-built solution frameworks encapsulate knowledge in the logistics field, which drives faster and lower cost implementation and allows for better standardization of processes and systems globally.

For clients, Cognizant brings a deep understanding of their particular industry, processes and complex IT systems. Cognizant uses a combination of technology and domain expertise, which provides complex problem-solving capabilities.

"Our Manufacturing and Logistics practice has a full range of business process frameworks which helps us deliver solutions to customers quickly and cost effectively," said Venkateswaran Mahesh, VP of the Manufacturing and Logistics Practice for Cognizant. "For the Ford solution, Cognizant's domain and technology experts combined their collective experience in automotive logistics, fleet management and transportation processes to develop an optimized solution quickly."
