The partnership combines Firstsource’s deep domain expertise with Celonis’ AI-powered technologies to accelerate digital transformation and drive value for enterprises.

Venkatgiri Vandali, President, Health Plans and Healthcare Services at Firstsource Solutions, said: “Enterprises are looking beyond cost control – they are turning to process optimization to generate guaranteed business outcomes. Our deep domain and process expertise coupled with Celonis’ AI-powered Execution Management technology will help enterprises rapidly reimagine their processes and deliver improved business outcomes.”
Sundara Sukavanam, Chief Digital Officer at Firstsource Solutions, said: “Businesses are looking to drive agile, data-driven responses while maximizing returns on their digital transformation investments.

Malhar Kamdar, Chief Ecosystem Officer at Celonis, commented: “Enterprises have several opportunities to accelerate digital transformation by linking strategy to operational resilience – something that cost-prohibitive traditional process modeling has failed to deliver. With more than 2,000 implementations under its belt, Celonis understands how processes work. We partner with leading ecosystem players such as Firstsource Solutions, to unify their in-depth expertise and domain knowledge in specialized industries with our revolutionary AI-enabled, data-driven technology. The powerful blend of Celonis EMS and Firstsource capabilities drives competitive advantage by helping enterprises strengthen operations, simplify compliance, prioritize cost-effective actions, bolster working capital, and enhance customer satisfaction.
