As Cleo continues to explore opportunities that benefit its customer and partner ecosystem, Cleo’s relationship with Microsoft will create an influx of ways to streamline partner engagements, enable customers to easily access and deploy Cleo solutions, and prepare for a future of innovation.
Answering the call of the industry’s biggest challenges
Enterprise and SMB organizations are faced with managing a variety of highly dynamic business processes which often involve changing partners and suppliers that need to respond to real-time challenges and complexities. However, limited visibility into the disparate external partners and partner networks means limited predictability.
“Cleo and its extensive partner ecosystem help companies across industries address their most pressing integration challenges and now we can do so on an even greater scale,” said Mahesh Rajasekharan, President and CEO of Cleo. “The growth in digital marketplaces is undeniable, and with AppSource being a central location for discovering and deploying trusted solutions, Cleo has now made itself more widely available, helping us, our customers, and partners remain highly competitive within the supply chain-driven industries we serve.”
How Cleo partners benefit from the visibility of Microsoft AppSource
Cleo seeks to help logistics, manufacturing, and distribution companies simplify the management of WMS (warehouse management systems), TMS (transportation management systems), or other point solutions; access to API and EDI integrations; and connections of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management and Business Central ERP solutions on a single platform. With Cleo’s Microsoft Connectors, customers can achieve end-to-end integration, business process automation, and orchestration between Microsoft Dynamics and their ecosystem. On AppSource, Cleo can amplify these efforts and reach a broader audience to continue building its partner ecosystem, furthering the valuable integrations available for customers to unlock real-time control and visibility of data with actionable insights.
Making Cleo solutions available on Microsoft AppSource enables Cleo to work more collaboratively with its partners to create personalized, packaged offerings for customers while simplifying their procurement process. Cleo’s relationship with Microsoft will bring enhanced usage of Dynamics 365 with a cloud-based integration and EDI platform to the Microsoft audience that enables interconnection across disparate supply chain and logistics solutions.
What to expect from Cleo and Microsoft moving forward
Regardless of where customers are in their business transformation and modernization journey, Cleo helps accelerate customer maturity and centrally integrate key logistics and supply chain processes with Dynamics 365 ERP. Customers will be able to leverage more from Microsoft such as integrations, greater extensibility, low-code automation, and AI-based analytics, all from the Microsoft ecosystem of products and services, and ready to integrate with Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP via API.
“Cleo is excited to bring its partners along as Cleo deepens its Microsoft relationship, starting with enabling Cleo’s customers to purchase its connectors via Microsoft AppSource,” Rajasekharan continued. “As we look ahead, Cleo is in a unique position within manufacturing, logistics, distribution, and other supply chain-driven industries to deepen the usage of Microsoft services and solutions while taking advantage of existing programs that connect Cleo with customers and partners such as the ability to contact Cleo on Microsoft AppSource and the possibility of multiparty private offers (MPOs).”
Together Cleo and Microsoft are working to help customers transform their businesses, uphold their business commitments, and deliver impactful, human-centered solutions to the market every day.
