ODP teams up with Microsoft to support shared & new B2B customers

The ODP Corporation, an American retail company, has recently announced the expansion of its long-standing relationship with Microsoft. The two companies are planning to boost efficiencies and growth of their shared as well as new B2B customers through the recent team-up.

With this collaboration, ODP will leverage the cloud-computing service, Microsoft Azure, and migrate its existing legacy systems and workloads to Azure. The company has also been putting high emphasis on bringing the expertise of its new digital procurement technology platform to the customers of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central to assist them in terms of immediate purchase savings & procurement automation.

According to The ODP Corporation’s Chief Executive Officer, Gerry Smith, the recent team-up highlights the company’s significant advancement in the B2B sector. Through the combination of its advanced distribution capabilities, high access to B2B customers, and technology know-how with Microsoft Azure’s technology know-how and capabilities, ODP is planning to consistently cater to the customers with enhanced solutions.

Judson Althoff, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Commercial Business at Microsoft, has reportedly cited that the company is well aware of the high potential of ODP’s digital procurement platform. It is thrilled to partner with this retail company and empower customers and organizations of all sizes in the near future.

In addition, ODP has recently announced that Prentis Wilson, a technology veteran, has joined the organization to ensure business transformation as well as lead the new technology business with a robust focus on transforming B2B sourcing, supply chain, and purchasing for buyers and suppliers.

Mr. Wilson reportedly stated that the B2B buying process is rapidly moving online, with procurement organizations embracing digital purchasing and sourcing. In order to gain a competitive edge over rivals, suppliers are also deploying B2B-grade e-Commerce technology and supply chain. He further added that ODP and its customers can ensure rapid and efficient growth via its partnership with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and Microsoft Azure.
