San Jose, CA October 9, 2001 Fujitsu has tapped Agile Software to provide the tools that will allow internal divisions within the computer and information technology manufacturer to collaborate with each other and the company's supply chain partners, according to a recent announcement from the solution provider.
Fujitsu has initially purchased Agile's design collaboration software for its Minamitama Plant in Tokyo, but the company is planning implementations that will eventually total more 10,000 users worldwide.
The Japanese company, based in Tokyo, is betting that the new software will significantly decrease the costs associated with getting products to volume production and enhance Fujitsu's ability to collaborate internally and with other companies.
"A company must thrive on the pace of change in today's global marketplace to compete successfully," said Kazuyasu Okada, group president, MIS Group, Fujitsu. "Agile's collaboration solutions will help Fujitsu deliver quality products to customers more quickly and cost effectively."
Agile already has several computer and IT manufacturers in its customer base, including Compaq, Dell Computer, Philips and Texas Instruments.
