A global IT company strengthened its vendor relationships through improved quality of interactions and minimized operational costs.
The better the question
Vendor management receives a technology transformation with AI.
Aglobal IT services company provider was facing challenges to maintain relationships with its diverse network of over 15,000 vendors, resulting in non-adherence to service delivery agreements. Effective vendor management is key to reducing costs, driving service excellence and mitigating risks.
Since the vendors were spread across multiple regions, effectively addressing the large volume of queries in 14 languages was challenging for the organization leading to poor vendor experiences. This had a negative impact on vendor satisfaction levels and also resulted in several contracts with the same vendor or disparate transactions with multiple vendors. Such setbacks caused delays in project completion timelines with lower customer satisfaction levels.
EY was appointed to provide a scalable solution that could meet the rising demands of the organization’s complex supplier ecosystem and support in managing it effectively.
The better the answer
EY teams developed an agile vendor management solution on EY Fabric AI Space to respond to vendor queries on a real-time basis.

EY Fabric AI Space, an enterprise artificial intelligence (AI) and automation platform, equipped the organization with new technology capabilities that helped in effectively managing a complex multi-vendor ecosystem. Built on advanced machine learning algorithms and AI models, EY Fabric AI Space offered a tailor-made suite of AI solutions and deployed an on-premise multi-channel, multi-lingual chatbot.

The combined vision of the organization and EY teams was to create an AI-powered digital workforce that augments human input and creates a better user experience with minimal operating expenditures.
