S2P excellence draws upon state-of-the-art procurement solutions

In a rapidly changing landscape of digital automation, we believe there is not the one Procurement solution which addresses all challenges, but requires a hybrid between core platform and digital solutions delivered on-premise/ cloud/hybrid channels.

Digital tools will serve as a basis and exploit full technology investment to augment core Procurement transactional platforms:

Transactional automation
  • Electronic workflows and Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
  • Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence enabled decision making
  • Cognitive computing (e.g. covering chat bots and human augmentation)
Machine to machine automation
  • Blockchain (e.g., smart contracts across the supply chain)
  • Internet of Things (e.g., machine based automated ordering/ replenishment)
Data to insights automation
  • Advanced analytics (e.g., data visualization, predictive analytics)
  • Spend and demand big data management

On each level, specific point solutions (e.g. category specific, functional specific) will deepen the S2P digital landscape.
