Procurement outsourcing must focus on sustainable process transformation rather than cost reduction through labor arbitrage. Companies can realize its potential by adopting an alternative service model that requires minimum capital investment for deployment, according to Infosys' expert.
In an article in Global Services Media, our expert discusses how procurement outsourcing can effect a transformation. The efficiency of process management can be enhanced through controls and discipline, while strategic sourcing and contractual buying enable effective spend management. He proposes a Source-to-Pay platform that ensures sustainable savings through streamlined procurement processes, spend control, reduced total cost of ownership, and strategic sourcing.
