Sourcing & Procurement
The next level of procurement demands agility, resilience, effectiveness, autonomy, and prediction. The extended procurement process needs digitalization to be enabled. Platform and application orchestration is the key to a successful program.
We propose a concept of platform orchestration to cover sourcing and procurement processes, which is essential for managing most spreading technologies. With over 30 years of experience in the procurement space across several industries, we have discovered that a single solution application cannot be self-consistent enough to satisfy digital procurement requirements. To make your digital journey unique, you need to implement, integrate, and orchestrate a huge ecosystem of technologies with a lean interaction across them, in order to customize and satisfy the digital transformation of all your processes.
From Cloud Standard Product to Cloud Ecosystem
Procurement has become a complex ecosystem of platforms and solutions. We help customer orchestrate multiple procurement applications to create an all-encompassing solution. By implementing leading technology for P2P, we have successfully integrated and customized standard products with ERP, information providers, government entities, and workflow engines. Additionally, we have improved the user interface and user experience by incorporating metaverse and AI to predict risk and cost trends. We have also developed a platform to evaluate the sustainability of products on the BOM level, discovered all possible automation with RPA and process mining applications, customized reporting on all processes, and added specific modules built with our products. Our capabilities extend beyond just technology; we have a real understanding of procurement process, which allows us to bring added value to our customers.
Extended Sourcing & Procurement
Innovation and collaboration are the keys to a successful project. The best way to achieve success is to start with service design based on users' requirements and determine which technology mix can best fit and meet their needs. Extending procure-to-pay to demand-to-pay allows CPOs to become value builders for the value chain. By adding our experience to our customers' specific competencies, we simplify processes and ensure the effectiveness of the purchase digital department. We innovate the platform's building and integrate new modules to capture purchase demand, plan and manage workload in the procurement organization, and create sustainable procurement by proactively engaging in the S&OP process.
Sourcing Next Level: Pervasive Sustainability
Sustainable steps are crucial in all aspects of the purchase process, including suppliers' management, material selection, logistics, production, and customer relations. Having a proven track record of sustainability and measurable results will have a significant impact on data collection, KPIs, reporting, and evaluation during the selection and awarding stages. We guide customers to leverage and integrate sustainable practices into the P2P backbone, strengthening their supply chain governance.
The path towards sustainable sourcing and procurement requires tedious steps that have a huge impact on your overall business. From demand to contracts, we pave a smooth transition, preserving traceability of all steps and contributions. We create an agile environment across departments, tasks, and stages. BPM and collaborative processes will guide the integration process to guarantee an effective process.
Servitization is a primary enabler of Circular Economy, and surely one of the top strategies for companies who are willing to increase their profitability while being sustainable. As-a-service business models allow the shift from selling a product, to selling the value of that asset to users in need.
We help companies explore this opportunity - from the analysis of their current business models and operations, to the design and actual implementation of new as-a-service models, leveraging digital technologies and our proprietary methodology to activate new revenue streams.
Industry 4.0 is a well-known concept, yet only a few companies have taken action despite seeing its potential value. Digital technologies are completely remodeling industrial production processes, providing greater flexibility, increased productivity and higher quality.
We guide companies in the transition towards their “Future Factories”, starting with people across the enterprise and, only then, focusing on the technologies that could be more helpful to support employees working with complex equipment and processes and ultimately, to do more with less.
People’s lives revolve around interactions – with other people, brands, products and devices. In a world where the line between digital and physical is extremely blurred, organizations must design and deliver meaningful, next-level customer experiences in order to stay relevant and keep growing.
Bringing together a passion for data, design, technology and customers, we help companies model end-to-end experiences in the phygital world, reimagining their Sales, Marketing and Services digital platforms through a human-centered approach.
To achieve real intelligent automation, an enterprise-wide approach is required - which means designing around people and technologies simultaneously.
Leveraging our approach and technological expertise, we help companies build solutions to achieve quality Augmented-Humans at scale, empowering their employees and letting them focus where they can make a real difference.
Your people’s knowledge is an incredible (often underrated) resource to leverage - if guided with the right approach, it’s your own people who will make innovation happen.
