Founded in 2006, PSA Group is a Johannesburg based management consulting firm with a niche focus on procurement advisory and training. With a strong team of procurement advisors and sourcing consultants, the firm has assisted numerous blue-chip clients with procurement transformation to drive agility, manage risk and deliver sustainable performance. PSA Group also supports organisations in their strategy of digitising and automating the procurement function with the integration and deployment of source-to-pay solutions and change management throughout project execution.
“Automation is a key enabler for transforming and enhancing the maturity of a procurement function. South African organisations have been lagging in this regard mainly due to lack of investment and limited availability of onshore end-to-end automation solutions. Our strategic partnership with Zycus will enable us to drive overall procurement performance of our clients by providing them with better visibility and control over their third-party spend, and increasing agility and efficiency of people and processes. We at PSA Group are thoroughly excited about this prospect.” said Manav Sachdeva, Managing Partner at PSA Group.
Zycus has over 300 customers worldwide across all industry types ranging from mining, financial services, FMCG, manufacturing, oil & gas and pharma. To ensure their customers’ success, the company has kept ease of integration with any ERP or third-party system as a key consideration during their product development. Zycus source-to-pay solution can integrate seamlessly with a company’s ERPs to offer a combined view of information and a cohesive central platform for their purchasing operations.
