UST Marks One Year of Partnership With Blue Yonder
Leaders in digital supply chain solutions set to announce innovative new services at ICON 2022
UST, a leading digital transformation solutions company, is marking the first anniversary of its unique strategic partnership with Blue Yonder, a leader in digital supply chain solutions and omnichannel commerce fulfillment. At a time of increased difficulty for retailers and supply chain platforms, UST and Blue Yonder remain committed to revolutionizing supply chain and retail.
Over the past year, the partnership has allowed UST to enhance its professional services capabilities significantly and offer retail customers a range of exciting possibilities. UST has in this first year participated in over 15 joint projects implementing innovative Blue Yonder solutions, and has been increasing its scope of offering with additional services for these projects as part of continuing efforts to help mutual customers find even more success. The company’s broad range of services makes UST a one-stop shop for Blue Yonder Planning services.
The new Blue Yonder Retailers compliment UST’s existing Retail Practice which currently counts 12 of the top 20 global retailers as long-term clients. The close relationship has benefited both companies, and UST’s Blue Yonder practice team has doubled since the partnership first began.
UST is the only Blue Yonder partner trained and experienced in providing services for the Retail Markets newest offerings, such as Luminate Assortment and Luminate Allocation. UST is an accredited Blue Yonder partner for the implementation of existing and future retail planning solutions.
As the relationship continues to grow, UST is proud to announce the following initiatives:
- UST Secure – A new enterprise platform focused on cyber supply chain risk management assessments, UST Secure alone gives users a measurable and actionable approach to cybersecurity, regulatory compliance, and cyber supply chain risk.
- UST Edge for Retail – Designed to transform in-store video systems into vision intelligence platforms, UST Edge for Retail makes it possible to optimize the in-store customer journey. By using vision intelligence and the Edge infrastructure, UST Edge for Retail automatically identifies misplaced or out-of-stock products while also providing real-time analytics on how customers are experiencing stores and personalizing in-store advertising using digital signage.
Peter Charness, Vice President, Retail Strategy, UST, said, “UST prides itself on our strong client relationships, and we are excited to participate in ICON 2022 as we roll out a new range of services for the retail sector. Our partnership with Blue Yonder has allowed us to offer dynamic new supply chain management solutions catered to emerging needs. We will continue to prioritize agility and responsiveness as we work to put clients in a position for continued success.”
“The relationship between Blue Yonder and UST shows how close collaboration can result in pathbreaking supply chain innovation and improved services for end users. Both companies have benefited from the partnership, and we look forward to continuing to build on our legacy of success,” noted Wayne Usie, Chief Market Development Officer, Blue Yonder.
