Sourcing & Procurement

Procurement is no longer about processing forms and grappling with suppliers on the price of daily requirements. Today’s business environment demands negotiating the maze of fluctuating material prices. Add to that the pressure on profits, increasing risk profiles in global markets, and the need to innovate. With all this, the procurement function has moved on to be more strategic, value-adding activity. It now works in close collaboration with the business units to minimize supply chain risk, enhance productivity and shorten delivery times.

How Wipro Helps

Our strategy splits organizational spend into three buckets: strategic spend covering around 60-65%; tactical spend, which is about 20-25%; and, finally, tail spend adding up to 10-15%. We align to the CPO's business goals by leveraging our deep category expertise to manage billions worth of spend enable cost savings through:

  • Category Management Support Services: cost savings up to 5 - 12% in addressable spend
  • Tactical Sourcing Execution Services: 3 - 5% savings in addressable spend
  • Tail Spend Management: 2 - 5% savings in addressable spend
  • Requisition to fill: 15 - 30% in operational cost savings, compliance, and service levels


Wipro's Sourcing and Procurement Service helps businesses across industry verticals address all aspects related to process, people and location, technology, governance/SLAs/KPIs, assets and artifacts, and transformation. We recommend a total cost of ownership approach with focus on maximizing value, helping you transition from the traditional transaction processing model to a differentiated and goal-driven model. For high-end execution or service delivery, we adopt a front office-middle office-back office combination model across Source-to-Pay services. Our model leverages competencies and skill sets that exist across the client organization, thus maximizing operational efficiencies and optimizing costs.
