Sprint drafts in Scopeworker to enable supply chain digitisation
The supply chain digitisation software, Scopeworker, is to partner with Sprint to help digitise the company's multi-billion-dollar supply chain.
Following successful trials in which double-digit percentage savings for Sprint's procurement department were consistently generated, Scopeworker will engage in multiple programmes to automate cost, time and quality efficiencies.
The Sprint programmes are major, multi-year investments that will dramatically improve its network coverage, reliability and speed.
Scopeworker says it “simplifies the world's most complex services supply chains with an uncomplicated digital transformation”.
Its web platform and mobile apps real-time automate engagement between buyers, suppliers and workers.
Sean Yazbeck, Scopeworker’s founder, said: “We're pleased to see Sprint's bold decision to embrace a digital transformation of their supply chain was immediately rewarded."
Cyril Pourrat, Sprint's Vice President of Procurement and Supply Chain, said: “We chose Scopeworker's platform because it's disrupting the supply chain and changing the way carriers build and operate networks.
“The platform allows our Network team to have full visibility to all field-based transactions and track metrics, including cost savings."
According to industry studies, Scopeworker's digitised marketplace automates procurement savings of up to 30% and increases workforce productivity by up to 30%.
Stakeholders engage A.I. Analytics for end-to-end transparency of budget, productivity and real-time management by exception. External systems including ERPs, databases and IoT devices are aggregated and their engagement automated.
Sprint's Chief Procurement Officer, Mariano Legaz, stated: “As we prepare to deliver the nation's first 5G mobile network in the first half of 2019, the Scopeworker system will help ensure Sprint receives the best, market-based pricing for construction services.”
