APPROACH

                          To solve this problem, we leveraged Sancus to –

                          • Validate and cleanse country-specific supplier database. The native languages were handled using a customized pre-processing framework.
                          • Once each country had a unified supplier database, a global matching solution was developed to identify similar suppliers and bucket them into clusters, or create hierarchies as required.

                          KEY BENEFITS

                          • A unified supplier database helped the client create comprehensive supplier scorecards & identify priority suppliers.
                          • The procurement team was able to revamp existing processes due to the intelligence developed from historical transactions.

                          RESULTS

                          • 15% of poor performing suppliers were removed from the priority procurement list; the key supplier contact information was validated, enabling a 7% reduction in shipment times.
                          • Improved data quality KPIs (data completeness, product & revenue mapping etc.) by 28%.
