Business impacts

  • Order management

    Maintaining healthy inventory involves multiple departments and complex workflows. Manual processes waste time and increase the risk of missed orders, delayed shipments and late payments. Automate and simplify processes with procure to pay software.

  • Information exchange

    Businesses need to exchange orders, transportation data, and invoices with their suppliers. Managing physical documents is error-prone and leads to order, delivery and payment issues. Improve data quality and reduce errors with digital exchanges.

  • Supply chain visibility

    Supply chain efficiency requires everyone to be on the same page. Manual data entry is slow with opportunities for errors, leading to miscommunication and unnecessary delays. Leverage digital procure to pay solutions for real time insights.

  • Supply chain insights

    When disruptions occur, or discrepancies with invoices, deliveries and orders arise, all parties must work together on a resolution. Poor collaboration makes it hard to spot issues and determine the root cause. Gain actionable intelligence with end-to-end visibility.

  • Real time ordering and fulfillment

    To stay competitive, organizations need to quickly respond to market shifts. Legacy procure to pay systems and paper-based processes delay modifications, impacting sales. Enable real-time ordering and fulfillment with mobile order management apps.

  • Shipment tracking

    Product may be lost or delayed in shipment due to traffic, rough handling or environmental conditions. Without monitoring product at each step, it is hard to get ahead of issues. Leverage procure to pay software with IoT track and trace capabilities.
