Overview

Faced with hyper-competitive market dynamics and complex customer demands, organizations need faster time-to-market, easier regional and channel expansion, and increased supplier and customer satisfaction. OpenText™ Business Network can help. By digitizing and integrating transaction-intensive business processes such as procure-to-pay (P2P) and order to cash (O2C), organizations can gain visibility into and optimize their mission-critical supply and demand chains. Additional benefits include reducing manual data entry and data entry errors, improving supplier information management, lowering transaction costs, and accelerating the receiving process.

Built on the world’s largest business network, OpenText Trading Grid™, OpenText cloud-based Active applications provide increased collaboration and 360° supply chain visibility with both digital and non-digital trading partners. Unlike manual integration and collaboration processes, our solution enables an automated and fully integrated P2P and O2C processes, allowing our customers to collaborate efficiently with all their trading partners - ultimately improving business performance.

OpenText supply chain applications give you better visibility into the status of purchase orders, the timing of upcoming shipments, and invoices. We can help you identify issues such as imperfect orders, late shipments, unmatched invoices and duplicate payments. Improved visibility and exception notifications should enable you to resolve problems before they impact your customers.
