Capgemini wins four-year contract from Novozymes

Capgemini has won a four-year global contract with Novozymes A/S, the Denmark-based bio-innovation specialized in industrial enzymes and microorganisms. Capgemini Procurement Services, a new division of Capgemini Business Process Outsourcing unit, will now manage Novozymes procurement services including Procure-to-Pay (P2P) on demand services and applications, leveraging its IBX on-demand technology platform. This deal, which will be globally rolled-out, will also include Capgemini’s consulting capabilities to increase the degree of utilisation of the P2P services.

Novozymes will use Capgemini’s on demand SAP/Supplier Relationship Management P2P technology throughout the whole procurement process. The P2P tool will be integrated into Novozymes’ procedures and will support the overall compliance project at Novozymes A/S called ‘Smart Consumption’. The aim of the project is to cover 90% of Novozymes A/S indirect spend through one channel. As part of this contract, the ‘IBX on demand platform’ will be used globally by Novozymes

Once the P2P solution has been globally rolled out, the solution aims to build a seamless end-to-end on-demand buying process covering the entire operational procurement cycle. As part of the contract, Capgemini will manage the entire electronic ordering process, invoice matching and eRequest, a simple request for Proposals solution incorporated with the Search Engine.

Novozymes A/S is significant as the first Danish IBX customer who is giving the responsibility for all its Supplier Relationship Management aspects to one provider, starting with P2P being rolled out globally. The aim is that through this solution Capgemini will help Novozymes reduce complexity, increase transparency in the purchasing process for indirect materials, increase efficiency and contract compliance and spend under management to achieve savings.

Leif Bohlin, Capgemini Procurement Services Lead, Outsourcing Services said: “We’re delighted to have been chosen by Novozymes for this long-term strategic contract. It expands our portfolio of clients for our new Procurement Services Unit and develops our global footprint in this innovative and fast-developing sector”.

The Capgemini Procurement Services unit is part of the Business Process Outsourcing practice. It was created following the acquisition of the on-demand purchasing solutions provider IBX which offers a software-as-a-service purchasing technology platform. Through this purchase Capgemini is able to deliver the industry’s first end-to-end solution for managing global sourcing strategies. This end-to-end BPO procurement solution includes a full suite of products and services, including business process outsourcing, software-as-a-service procurement platform and an established global supplier network with more than 20,000 suppliers.
