Software giant Infosys BPO teamed up with Tradeshift last month. The India-based company’s Business Process Outsourcing subsidiary will leverage Tradeshift’s cloud-based platform to enable clients to digitize their supply chain processes.
John Sibley, Vice President of Global Alliances and Channels at Tradeshift, said that he looks forward to “combining Infosys’ deep domain and process expertise” with Tradeshift’s B2B commerce platform. He added that the partnership “will provide greater transparency and agility, along with a compelling value proposition to suppliers and buyers alike, on various touch points in the source to pay lifecycle.”
Anantha Radhakrishnan, CEO and Managing Director of Infosys BPO said that the partnership “will help augment our experience and expertise in transformative Business Process Management and enable us to further deliver tremendous business outcome benefits to our clients.”
According to the press release, the partnership will enable customers to take advantage of early payment discounts, remove manual paper-based processes, and build custom applications. This will not only reduce costs but also increase efficiency. Infosys plans to pilot these capabilities for clients in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and China.
Founded in 2010 and headquartered in San Francisco, Tradeshift’s business commerce platform connects buyers and sellers. The company links up more than 1.5 million companies across 190 countries and is currently on track to process over half a trillion U.S. dollars in transaction value. At FinovateEurope 2012, the company’s co-founder and CEO Christian Lanng debuted Tradeshift Instant Payments, a solution that enables businesses to receive payments in real time for invoices. The company has raised a total of $182 million and was recently featured in CB Insights’ Fintech 250 list.
Infosys recently made headlines when it unveiled Finacle Trade Connect, a blockchain-based trade finance solution. Last month, the company appointed Salil Parekh as CEO and Managing Director. Finacle, part of EdgeVerve Systems, a subsidiary of Infosys, showcased EdgeVerve Blockchain Framework for Financial Services at FinovateEurope 2017.
