Back in the 1990s, when the commercial Internet was still beginning to revolutionize the way they live, personally and professionally, the founder of Zycus was inspired to develop web-based business applications for procurement professionals.
They started their journey in 1998 and like any new company; their first big challenge was to find the very first customer. When they won GE, they knew they were doing things the right way. Ever since, they have continued on the path of innovation to provide sophisticated end-to-end procurement solution suites with one focus – customers’ happiness.
The foundation of Zycus’ promise of a powerful source-to-pay procurement software suite is built on:
COMPREHENSIVENESS OF OFFERINGS
Many pseudo suites or uneven set of products present in the market are inefficient. Zycus solutions are comprehensive and developed to provide a consistent superior functionality and user-experience across their different modules. This commitment of ours implies that they do not just offer ‘each of these modules’ but also offer them ‘in their most advanced form’.
STRONG SUITE-WIDE ANALYTICS
Idle data adds no value. Only when it is churned into useful information, can well informed decisions be taken. Zycus solutions are backed by strong analytical capabilities with a vision to not only help you in analyzing the past and the present but also to equip you with actionable insights for the unseen future.
Built ground-up on the same DNA, each of their modules know how to talk to each other and also how to talk to other technological systems, ERPs and databases implemented at your end.
EASE-OF-USE AND USER ADOPTION
The company very well understands that your goals of making a difference to your organization will need every team member and stakeholder walking in that same direction. They keep that in mind when they design their solution interface. Zycus solutions are incorporated with intuitive and simple-to-use interface that you desire.

“We investigated our options carefully. We chose Zycus as their offering matched our opportunity and the Zycus teams were responsive and effective working with us through the selection process.” – Margaret Reid, Strategic Procurement Manager, RSL Care.
“We of course had another service provider which was Ariba and our contract was coming to an end. We needed an additional service provider who would give us probably more flexibility, more functionalities into the strategic sourcing and at the same time we were looking at a more economical solution. That’s where it started. They (Zycus) were flexible with us. They saw our strategy. They understood the relationship. The ease of use, the user friendliness of the product allows me to give it to everybody in the organization.” – Abdullatif Albastaki, Chief Procurement Officer, Emirates NBD.
