Professional services firm Genpact has agreed a deal to buy Barkawi Management Consultants, a supply chain management consultancy with operations in the U.S. and Europe.
Genpact said the acquisition would strengthen its digital transformation service offering.
As part of its ongoing strategy to drive digital-led transformation along with digitally-enabled intelligent operations for clients, Genpact is investing in leading capabilities, such as supply chain transformation.
In a release, Genpact said the addition of Barkawi Management Consultants' consulting expertise and leading supply chain technology services is expected to enable Genpact to deliver to clients global, end-to-end supply chain services bolstered by domain, digital, and data science expertise.
Barkawi Management Consultants specialises in providing both strategic and operational supply chain management services, including areas like supply chain strategy design and execution, demand planning, supply planning, sales and ops planning, distribution strategy, and design.
Additionally, Barkawi Management Consultants' key partnerships with leading supply chain technology providers and implementation expertise will complement Genpact's proprietary planning and control tower solutions, providing comprehensive digital capabilities to clients.
“Supply chain management is incredibly strategic to our clients since it directly impacts their competitive differentiation, revenue, and operating margins. This is a key area where we're investing,” said Shantanu Ghosh, business leader, Enterprise Services, Genpact.
“With Barkawi Management Consultants, we will be adding market-leading supply chain strategy and technology consulting capabilities, as well as terrific talent to our existing domain expertise, digital investments, and managed services base.
