Fujitsu has built on its 32-year relationship with Toyota Australia, signing a three-year cloud services deal involving one of its critical information technology operations.
After an extensive evaluation, Toyota will move its TUNE Dealership Management System (DMS) which is used by its dealerships across Australia, to a managed service hosted by Fujitsu.
The service is a fully configurable, pay-per-use model with no lock-in term or contract fees, allowing Toyota to control the consumption of IT resources.
Provisioning of processing power is able to start as small as one server, and can expand on demand as each dealer’s TUNE application requires more resources to support increasing use.
“Their move to the cloud for this key business platform is a highly intelligent way to capitalise on their investment in TUNE and build in total flexibility to meet the growth demands as more Dealers register to use the system,” Fujitsu group executive director of solutions and cloud services, Cameron McNaught, said.
Moving TUNE to the cloud will see Toyota dealers experience faster software response times and increased data stability and security, which will boost their user experience of the dealership management system.
Toyota Australia divisional manager information systems division, James Scott, said TUNE was critical to our business performance.
“We needed a trusted leader in cloud services for this project and Fujitsu’s Cloud Services will provide us with a robust and secure IT strategy for this expanding application,” Scott said.
