Fujitsu Supply Chain and Configuration Services Speed Up Multivendor Network Deployments, Cut Costs

New Service Offering Streamlines, Standardizes and Simplifies Complex Implementation Projects

Fujitsu Network Communications Inc.

Richardson, TX, December 12, 2014

Fujitsu, a leading provider of business, information technology, and communications solutions, announced today that Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. is launching its Supply Chain and Configuration Services, a single source for the procurement, integration, testing and deployment of multivendor technology projects. Fujitsu Supply Chain and Configuration Services can deliver turn up-ready systems and components to the installation site in less than a third of the typical implementation time, while reducing associated costs by up to 15 percent.

Most complex multivendor projects present significant challenges. These include sourcing equipment from multiple vendors; coordinating product and parts deliveries; integrating disparate technologies; and pre-testing and shipping ready-to-install equipment. The performance of individual suppliers can be unpredictable; and the overall cost and time required for the project from start to finish is often greater than expected, disrupting daily network operations and delaying the rollout of profitable new subscriber services.

Fujitsu Supply Chain and Configuration Services leverage the technical expertise of the company’s skilled workforce; state-of-the-art facilities; well-established supplier relationships; and operational best practices honed over the past 30 years. These significant strengths combine to create complete, quality-assured solutions while providing reliable rollout schedules with more predictable capital and operations expenses.

“The quality, predictability and savings offered by our Supply Chain and Configuration Services solution makes it very attractive to many technology companies,” said Barrie Hall, Senior Vice President, Fulfillment at Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. “Our customers can count on us to deliver, on-time, preconfigured solutions with hardware and software customized to customer specifications. We stage all technology before shipping to the installation site so that the only thing left to do is un-crate and connect.”

Supply Chain and Configuration Services such as procurement; logistics management; integration, test and turn-up prior to field deployment; packaging and staging/warehousing can be provided individually or offered as an end-to-end solution.
