Ultramar Diamond Shamrock Corp. (UDS), which operates 2,600 convenience stores, said it has forged a partnership with C-bridge, a provider of e-commerce management solutions, to provide e-commerce training and create enterprise-level applications using e-business technology.
To complement the training C-bridge is also offering architecture and strategy support services to UDS, helping the company to articulate its digital strategy and excel in the e-business development environment.
To effectively manage change as UDS transitions to e-business application development, C-bridge is implementing a progressive course schedule that begins with an introduction to e-business geared directly towards the refiners information technology staff.
For UDS, the movement to e-business applications is expected to produce significant business benefits, including increased customer access, greater administrative efficiencies and enhanced collaboration between customers, suppliers and employees, said Doris Beaulieu, vice president and chief information officer of UDS.
"As the gas and oil industry continues to harness the power of modern technology to build a collaborative work flow model and achieve integration throughout the value chain, we look to C-bridge to help us implement our strategy and bring our IT staff up to speed quickly on e-business development," Beaulieu said. "C-bridge's demonstrated commitment to knowledge transfer impressed us, and we're confident that our IT staff will be highly equipped to undertake the challenge of developing and deploying applications."
