Fujitsu Lifts Toyota Into The Cloud

Fujitsu lifts Toyota into the cloud

Mission critical Dealer Management System trusted to the cloud to deliver high quality services throughout Australia

Sydney, 21 February 2011 — Fujitsu, a leading provider of ICT business solutions, today announced that Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited has selected Fujitsu to provide Cloud Services for one of its critical information technology operations.

After an extensive evaluation, Toyota Australia will move its TUNE Dealership Management System (DMS) which is used by Toyota dealerships across Australia, to a managed service hosted by Fujitsu.

Fujitsu’s winning Cloud Services bid is a fully configurable, Pay-Per-Use solution, which allows Toyota to control the consumption of IT resources. The flexible three year agreement enables use of the Service on a monthly basis, with no ‘lock in’ term or contract fees if Toyota wishes to realign its technology strategy.

The new technology environment will ensure far greater levels of availability, reliability and Dealer data security that will enable all TUNE dealers, including multi-franchisees, to be confident that their TUNE DMS operates efficiently and effectively. 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.

James Scott, Divisional Manager Information Systems Division, Toyota Australia said: “TUNE is 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.
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.

Cameron McNaught, Group Executive Director, Solutions and Cloud Services, for Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand said: “We congratulate Toyota on its new strategic direction for the TUNE DMS. 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.”

Rod Vawdrey, Chief Executive Officer, Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said: “Fujitsu’s 32 year history with Toyota Australia showcases the levels of trust and security that a successful IT partnership provides. Fujitsu is honoured to continue our relationship with one of the leading automotive companies in the nation.”
