Benefits

Faster/better outcomes

Our clients experience rapid improvements (within 90 days) to their business outcome KPIs (e.g.: Order to delivery, Inventory/days of supply etc.) much faster and at a lower cost than if they did the work internally.

Process consistency and efficiency

We drive greater consistency and visibility across supply chain processes for the client.

Cross-industry expertise

We provide an expert layer and an execution layer (where needed) consisting of talent pools that have cross-industry expertise and have gone through structured training and on-boarding.

Optimized resource pool

Shared resources across multiple clients provide a higher knowledge base and cost optimization compared to what the clients can achieve on their own.

Non-disruptive engagement

Our BPaaS model minimizes the impact to our client’s current IT infrastructure since we are data agnostic (data can come from any type of system, spreadsheets and even hand-written documents) with flexible integration options.

Supply chain visibility and single source of truth

Our process control towers present a single source of truth for supply chain processes, priorities, root causes, exceptions, etc., improving productivity and decision quality. We reduce internal silos that impede collaboration across functions and geographies.

Agility

We’re more agile and adaptive to the changing needs of the business, and are able to incorporate business rules much faster into our environment as compared to the speed of internal IT teams supporting the supply chain function.
