Family Dollar Stores is deploying a new IT platform to improve business responsiveness and deliver superior services across its more than 8,000 stores in 46 states.
The discounter has licensed Cognizant’s enterprise-class cloud management platform developed on Amazon Web Services for its portal applications. The solution is designed to boost operational performance and cost competitiveness.
“We are constantly looking for opportunities to strengthen our value proposition and improve our performance,” said Vikas Wali, divisional VP of IT Application and Infrastructure Services at Family Dollar. “This engagement is crucial to our efforts to execute better on our promise of being an efficient, low-cost retailer.”
The three-year agreement expands the vendor’s long-term relationship with Family Dollar, which has featured the companies partnering on strategic technology and business programs encompassing store operations, supply chain, merchandizing and back office.
