Genpact (G) Extends Multiyear Relationship With McKesson

Zacks Equity Research

Genpact Limited G and McKesson MCK yesterday announced the extension of their existing relationship. McKesson has been receiving support for financial operations for several years through this relationship.

Through the renewed tie-up, Genpact will deploy digitally-enabled advanced technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning to simplify and standardize McKesson’s finance operations. Genpact’s technology contribution will be reflected in McKesson’s Order to Cash, Record to Report, Contract Management, Master Data Management, and Source to Pay processes.

The broader goal is to accelerate McKesson’s operating model and cost structure program redesign that are parts of the company’s multi-year strategic growth initiative. The companies will jointly implement the redesigns.

We observe that Genpact shares have declined 7.4% in the past three months compared with the 14.2% decline of the industry.

Our Take

The relationship is based on a combination of Genpact’s deep operations optimization experience and McKesson’s operational excellence.
