Company recognized for its portfolio of supply chain financing services, open B2B network
STAMFORD, Conn., Jan. 28, 2016 – Basware, the leading provider of e-invoicing and purchase-to-pay solutions, today announced that it has been recognized for offering the best web-based supply chain financing solution by Global Finance magazine in its ninth annual ranking of the World’s Best Supplier Finance Providers. The company was noted for its Basware Financing Services business, which enables companies of all sizes to conduct just-in-time financing and take control of their payment terms. Basware Financing Services are powered by the Basware Network, the largest open B2B network in the world, enabling buyers and suppliers to seamlessly collaborate.
“We are proud to be selected as the best in the financing solutions field by Global Finance,” said Ad van der Poel, Basware’s senior vice president, Financing Services. “Last year, we established the Financing Services business to address the needs of companies – both big and small – for improved cash flow and working capital management. We have introduced three services to the market since that time, offering a range of easy and flexible financing services to address these needs.”
The Basware Financing Services division enables companies and their suppliers to optimize cash and working capital through digital participation in the Basware Network. Through Basware’s Financing Services, companies on the Basware Network have multiple options to choose from when designing a payment strategy, including a global e-payment solution (Basware Pay), dynamic discounting (Basware Discount) and an e-invoicing based supplier driven invoice financing service (Basware Advance).
Global Finance’s editorial review board—with input from industry analysts, corporate executives and technology experts—selected the best providers of supply chain financing and management services. A variety of subjective and objective criteria were used for choosing the winners. Factors considered included: market share and global coverage, product innovation, customer service, technology, execution skills and client-specific implementations.
“Supplier finance providers and the corporates who use their services are trying to understand how big developments on the economic, regulatory and policy fronts will affect their business,” said Joseph D. Giarraputo, publisher and editorial director of Global Finance. “Corporates need supplier finance partners who can help them adjust nimbly to those changes. With these awards, we aim to identify those partners.”
The rankings for the ninth annual World’s Best Supplier Finance Providers will be published in an exclusive survey in the February 2016 issue of Global Finance.
