MTN Group - Global Sourcing and Supply Chain (GSSC)

Predictive Procurement Ecosystem for Strategic Sourcing (Recommendation Engine, Ai-Assistant GeSSiCa and Decision Modelling System)

At GSSC, we have adopted an agile sourcing model where category strategies are designed using data-driven recommendations from in-house developed tools. We have successfully integrated the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning as part of the Procurement process.

We enable fact-based decision making through scenario analysis and game theory using our Decision Support Application (DSA) tool and generate automatic actionable insights on bundling & cost-saving opportunities using our Recommendation engine. Our AI assistant GeSSiCa automates the tactical activities using robotic process automation technology, thus bringing efficiencies for our category managers to focus only on strategic aspects.
