As businesses continue to eliminate manual- and paper-based processes from the front-end of the accounts payable (“AP”) function, attention has turned to streamlining and driving more value from the payment phase of the ePayables Framework. Beyond increasing the number of suppliers that accept payment electronically instead of via paper check, there are a few innovative financial solutions that can—and frequently do—turn supplier payments into a strategically valuable part of the business. Supplier payments can be an incredible source of strategic value for businesses today beyond an ePayments approach, as there are several key financial solutions that can optimize cash and improve liquidity.
Supply chain finance (“SCF”), which allows enterprises to pay their suppliers more quickly than standard payment terms while also extending their days payable outstanding (“DPO”), can be a true source of financial value for today’s businesses. SCF avoids the supplier pressure and supply chain disruption risk of traditional DPO extension methods (stretching payment terms) and creates a “win-win” situation for buyers and suppliers alike.
