Capgemini, a provider of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, has partnered with NetSuite to launch a Virtual Company BPO solution that aims to help organizations become more agile in disruptive environments.
The Virtual Company provides an integrated platform to help companies achieve a secure, fast startup of back office operations to support innovation, new business start-ups, mergers and acquisitions, and new product and market launches, Capgemini said.
The solution works by combining outsourced services, processes, technology and infrastructure for applications such as Finance and HR which can integrate with the parent company’s organization and technology.
The new cloud BPO offerings are truly disruptive and breaking the mold of legacy BPO and ERP models, says Phil Fersht, founder and CEO at HfS Research.
“This will surely be one of the first true Cloud BPO partnerships that helps bring new enterprises into a completely outsourced environment from the get-go to support clients’ growth and scalability where needed the most,” Fersht added.
The complete outsourced service includes the resources and supporting technology, which is pre-packaged and ready-to-go. It also allows companies to run, track and understand new product rollouts better and its flexibility means that several pilots can even be carried out at the same time.
Christopher Stancombe, CEO for Capgemini Business Process Outsourcing, said the Virtual Company solution was created in response to the growing demand for outsourced technology platforms to aid speed to market and reduce set-up costs.
Jim McGeever, NetSuite COO, said, “Customers will benefit from a powerful operational support platform that is flexible enough to tailor to their specific needs, and can be deployed anywhere in the world at a fraction of the cost of traditional on-premise ERP.”
The Virtual Company is available as a service across all sectors and is currently being rolled out globally, with several multinational companies already interested in the packaged solution.
