Cleo Announces Top System Integrator Partners with Ecosystem Integration Awards

Cognizant, Persimmon, C&T Technology honored for expanding ecosystem integration adoption

Cleo, the pioneer and global leader of the Ecosystem Integration software category and provider of the Cleo Integration Cloud (CIC) platform, today announced it has recognized three key channel partners with annual honors for the roles they are playing in expanding the Ecosystem Integration software category.

At a May 16 event held in Atlanta, Georgia, Cognizant (NASDAQ: CTSH), a Cleo partner since 2017 with a dedicated focus on digital transformation, was honored as Cleo’s 2022 “Global System Integrator of the Year” for successes achieved for multiple joint logistics customers in the enterprise market. In partnering to bring Cleo’s ecosystem integration solution to the logistics, manufacturing, distribution, and retail markets, among others, the two companies are together creating new ways to provide the unique revenue-driving capabilities of Cleo Integration Cloud to businesses globally via the Cleo platform’s B2B integration capabilities and Cognizant’s industry and technology expertise.

Based in Teaneck, New Jersey, Cognizant is a nearly $20B global business, with over 350,000 employees, and close to 300 offices worldwide. Their Cleo practice comprises dozens of Cognizant professionals trained in the deployment and management of Cleo’s enterprise-scale ecosystem integration technology, Cleo Integration Cloud, enabling joint end-user customers to immediately benefit from platform’s unique blend of API, EDI, and non-EDI integration capabilities.

“I am exceptionally proud of the recognition for Cognizant as Cleo’s Global System Integrator of the Year,” said Aditya Pathak, Vice President and Head of Automotive, Transportation and Logistics, with Cognizant. “This is a tribute to all the associates who have built this partnership and work tirelessly to improve the everyday lives of our clients.”

Additionally, Cleo honored two other vertically influential channel partners for their respective contributions to Cleo’s business growth.

The Persimmon Group, based in Dallas, Texas, was named Cleo’s “Logistics Systems Integrator of the Year.” As a global leader in ecosystem integration technology, Persimmon has a keen grasp on many of the logistics and transportation management system (TMS) on the market today. Their Cleo practice is focused on developing what it calls “customer-specific ecosystems,” a new approach to IT modernization that optimizes critical end-to-end business processes across a company’s supply chain. From manufacturing to end-consumer delivery, or from order fulfillment and billing to product catalogs and delivery, Persimmon helps companies move information, expedite trading partner onboarding, and increase the velocity of B2B transactions by providing greater control and organizational agility to meet evolving ecosystem integration requirements.

Through the partnership with Cleo, Persimmon enables its customers to maintain healthy relationships with all their ecosystem stakeholders. Persimmon’s supply chain expertise, combined with Cleo’s robust platform, allows for customized development of both API and EDI solutions that fit individual customer requirements and that can be delivered quickly, no matter what IT environment the customer is using.

And last, Cleo awarded C&A Technology LLC (CAT), a leading provider of Oracle JD Edwards (JDE) and SAP services and solutions that align business systems with business strategies enabled by technology, with honors as Cleo’s “Manufacturing/Distribution System Integrator of the Year” for 2022. CAT’s expertise in JDE and SAP EDI managed services and deep industry knowledge complements Cleo’s cloud integration platform to create new offerings for specific industries. By combining each company’s strengths, Cleo and CAT are helping clients extend their JDE and SAP EDI managed services solution through cloud-based integration.

Cleo President and CEO Mahesh Rajasekharan, in speaking about this year’s Cleo Partner Awards recipients said, “Cleo is extremely fortunate to have such committed and talented partners working with us to introduce large enterprises and vertical market leaders alike to the power and potential of ecosystem integration. The combination of Cleo Integration Cloud with the highly focused expertise of these managed services partners is helping our joint customers drive revenue, improve profitability, and distance themselves from their competition. Congratulations to all this year’s winners.”
