Building supply chain resilience
The building blocks for a hyperconnected supply chain that can adapt and thrive in the face of disruption
Traditional supply chains built on scale and repeatability often compromise on adaptability. The Coronavirus pandemic exposed the major consequences of this lack of agility. Many businesses were unable to quickly reshape supply, reduce complexity, meet demand, control costs, or maximize sales.
Though disruption is not uncommon in supply chains, the recent pace, scale, and global nature of disruption is unprecedented. Here are some examples of the challenges that organizations have faced:
We help our clients transform disconnected, rigid, and outdated processes into a hyperconnected supply chain. At its core, a hyperconnected supply chain builds upon a responsive architecture so business leaders can sense and respond to demand at speed and scale. By connecting data across the enterprise, supply chain leaders can spot risks sooner, have more visibility into the financial implications of decisions, and make decisions more quickly and with more confidence.
We tailor our supply chain solutions for the individual enterprise but build them with four common building blocks.
Leading companies don't rely solely on historic and internal business data for forecasting. They're adding in external data to generate powerful, predictive insights. This approach – of combining market insights with artificial-intelligence-powered analytics – is part of our forecasting-as-a-service offering, which delivers earlier and clearer demand signals to help supply chain leaders act on insights at speed.
To get started, our experts will assess your current supply chain's maturity and develop a future-proof model for predicting demand. We'll also incorporate intelligent automation across your supply and demand planning processes, establish a forecasting center of excellence, develop a transformation roadmap, and introduce digital tools to underpin virtual collaboration and remote working. On average, our clients reduce forecasting errors by 18%.
Our agile response frameworks use advanced analytics to identify demand patterns and trends to spot potential gaps in the demand plan and then deliver these insights in customizable dashboards. With this approach, demand prediction and capacity resetting become far easier to manage. Some of the benefits we've achieved for our clients include:

Genpact's supply chain resilience solutions enhance visibility, agility, and ultimately create a hyperconnected supply chain that is flexible and future proof. We've already put these solutions into practice for enterprises across a range of industries.
A leading manufacturer needed to completely realign its existing sales and operations planning (S&OP) process and improve forecast accuracy. By leveraging forecasting-as-a-service across its supply chain, the company has developed a new and improved S&OP process that incorporates accurate monthly statistical forecasts from advanced analytics. As a result, the manufacturer realized a $53 million reduction in inventory in just two months.
A global healthcare product manufacturer was facing challenges from a complicated logistics network and high delivery costs. Genpact performed a diagnostic to identify optimal warehouse facilities to reduce overall fulfillment, handling charges, and transportation costs. By reducing the number of warehouses across its logistics network, the company has saved $6.6 million in associated costs.
Genpact designs its supply chain resilience solutions to help your business not only survive – but also thrive.
