E2open, a provider of cloud-based service for collaborative planning and execution across global trading networks, today announced that it has signed a Collaboration and License Agreement partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC), the world’s largest professional services firm.

The agreement includes supply chain services delivery and joint marketing efforts in the United States.

“E2open and PwC bring together a wealth of supply chain expertise and industry leading technology,” says Mark Woodward, President and CEO, E2open. “The alignment of premier partners such as PwC, with the emerging market category of Collaborative Planning and Execution, creates a tangible roadmap for customer success.”

Under the terms of the agreement, PwC will offer advisory supply chain and implementation services to clients that select E2open. PwC has an existing partnership agreement with icon-scm, which was acquired by E2open in July, 2013.

More than 37,000 trading partners and 117,000 unique registered users currently participate in the E2open Business Network, which allows participants to share plans and data and execute business processes in a secure, real-time manner.

The E2open Business Network also provides collaboration tools and analytics so that E2open customers can make more informed and efficient decisions.

Rob Schoenthaler, Chief Solutions Officer, E2open, says that this partnership will build upon the collaborative planning and execution advanced last summer with the acquisition of icon-scm.

“Now that we have advanced our ecosystem and growth strategy with more technology, we can advance our goals by using experts in the field of consulting,” he says.

As reported here last July, E2open acquired icon-scm to give brand owners and their trading partners more collaborative tools.
