“This collaboration is further proof that ODP is evolving into a leading B2B company,” said Gerry Smith, Chief Executive Officer of The ODP Corporation. “By combining ODP’s broad reach to B2B customers, advanced distribution capabilities, and new technology platform development, with Microsoft Azure capabilities and technology know-how, we are going to market with solutions to help customers grow.”
“We believe in the potential that ODP’s digital procurement platform can bring to organisations of all sizes,” said Judson Althoff, Executive Vice President, Microsoft’s Worldwide Commercial Business. “We’re pleased to be on this journey with ODP and are looking forward to empowering customers together in the years ahead.”
ODP recently announced that technology veteran Prentis Wilson joined the organisation to help drive the company’s transformation, leading the new technology business focused on transforming B2B sourcing, purchasing, and supply chain for suppliers and buyers.
“B2B purchasing is rapidly moving online and procurement organisations of all sizes are embracing digital sourcing and purchasing. Suppliers need B2B-grade eCommerce technology and nimble supply chains to remain competitive,” said Wilson. “Partnering with Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, ODP and its customers – buyers and suppliers alike – can quickly grow and scale efficiently.”
