We help you build sourcing processes with predictable outcomes, overcome execution challenges and apply category expertise across sourcing levers to enable you to achieve your goals.

Looking at the big picture ensures you arrive at sourcing strategies that truly meet the needs of your business. WNS Procurement's team of strategic sourcing experts takes a collaborative, situation-specific approach to discovering the optimal strategy for a given category of spend. Sourcing initiatives are conducted with the rigor of best-in-class processes and a robust project management structure.

Our approach to strategic sourcing helps category leaders achieve success step by step:

• Understand your business’ true needs
• Understand the forces at play that influence the category
• Develop a sourcing strategy tailored to fit your situation
• Execute strategy with best in class delivery

Once you’ve arrived at the best way forward for your spend category, ensure the execution of that strategy is robust and of the highest quality. Whether your agreed approach involves an RFx, direct negotiation, auction, we partner with you to ensure that those steps achieve excellence.

Alignment with current data privacy, regulatory, risk management, and other industry or governmental requirements is key to the sustainability of your sourcing effort. The WNS Procurement team is at the forefront of the conversation here and will work with you to address each of these factors throughout your sourcing execution process.

Where are your biggest possible wins? Before diving into the details of a specific spend category, it’s critical to get a bird’s eye view and identify all the opportunities that may be waiting for you. Only after this full assessment can we begin to develop and prioritize the strategies that will be best to pursue first, and identify the important linkages across categories that will speak to the way we source.

From there, we’ll work to develop a sourcing approach that tackles the highest-priority opportunities first, flowing through a wave plan that’s both impactful and sustainable as you continue to manage your day-to-day business.

Proactively and consciously source and procure products and services in an ethical, sustainable, and socially conscious way. We assist our clients right from creating a Responsible sourcing policy aligned to the organisation goal, analysing impact a sourcing action would make, taking affirmative action to achieve the set goals, and tracking the impact and achievements versus the set responsible Sourcing goals.

One of the most common findings in an opportunity assessment is a long ‘tail’ of lower-spend suppliers. Do 80 percent of your suppliers comprise 20 percent of your spending? If so, perhaps it’s time to assess why, and develop programs that both maximize the contribution of your key preferred suppliers and reduce the administrative burden on your organization. Managing tail spend can be a highly effective approach for organizations of all sizes and industries. WNS Procurement's tail spend programs are differentiated by our digital offerings, which help you proactively drive further efficiencies in your tail spend management.

Paramount to the success of any sourcing program is the enabling data and information. WNS Procurement, Powered by The Smart Cube, enables you with CPOTRAC suite and Amplifi PRO to ensure that every step of our collaboration is rooted in clear, digitally enabled market and data-driven insights.

We help you with data-guided projects — from opportunity assessment through execution. Internal and external data combined with latest market happenings in the category will be the corner stone of the sourcing strategy and shape the path forward for every sourcing process.
