Morrisons warms up for future business growth

Food retailer Morrisons has chosen Wipro Retail, an arm of Wipro Technologies, for planning and management of IT systems based on Oracle ERP platform.
Gary Barr, CIO for Morrisons, said that the contract is expected to support the future growth of the business by replacing the existing IT systems.

Morrisons says that Wipro Retail was selected for the job based on strong feedback from Oracle Implementation references. The retailer was also impressed with the IT provider’s work during the planning and scoping phase.

In planning and scoping, Wipro Retail took up works around manufacturing, testing and business intelligence / data warehousing. It also offered a combination of on-shore, near shore and off-shore resources.

Phil Goodwin, programme director for Morrisons, said: “During planning & scoping we allocated project streams to different potential partners; Wipro Retail impressed us most with their agility, quality of people and their cultural fit. We are confident that they have the capability to meet the future needs of Morrisons.”
