Michelin Achieves Flexibility and Scalability to Support their Global Operation

Michelin logo

Michelin turned to OpenText GXS for a flexible B2B infrastructure.

We were looking for a scalable solution with security. We found that OpenText Managed Services was completely in line with our strategy and this is why we moved to Managed Services. I would say that we are extremely happy.

Challenge

The dynamic nature of the automotive industry and the significant growth opportunities in emerging markets presents a significant challenge to companies like Michelin.
