Key Findings & Highlights:

HCL Technologies (HCL) first entered procurement BPO services in 2004, providing a manufacturing sector client of IT infrastructure management and SAP maintenance services with PO processing. The client was facing difficulties finding appropriate resources in its San Antonio operations.

Between 2004 and 2008, HCL's focus on procurement BPO evolved towards broader P2P services, for indirect spend on a shared services model; then it added more flexibility to its offerings, which continued to focus on transactional procurement outsourcing services

In 2009, HCL entered a two-year partnership with Xerox to add sourcing expertise to its sourcing and procurement (S&P) offerings portfolio; the intention being for Xerox specialists to support HCL's clients of procurement transactional support services with category management services. The partnership was targeting opportunities to support manufacturers in their product development (HCL has extensive mechanical engineering capabilities). While the partnership helped HCL's initial development of services in managing RFx and e-auctions, it did not develop into a strategic partnership.

Today, HCL has other partners for category management expertise: ProcureAbility, ISG, and Chain IQ. It offers S2C services around RFx and e-auction support, P2P transactional and tactical services, spend analytics, and subsequent opportunity assessments on the back of sourcing support contracts.
