The new P2P focused podcast

Basware Bytes: A procurement and finance podcast series

Basware Bytes

Welcome to Basware Bytes’ – a new B2B podcast series dedicated to the fast-changing finance and procurement landscape.

From trading conditions to regulatory developments; shifting consumer expectations and supply chain challenges, to the technologies and processes emerging in response. With a wide array of external speakers, Basware Bytes’ aims to help its listeners make sense of the rapidly evolving financial and procurement landscapes.


In this two-part episode we talk about what some are dubbing the ‘New Financial Era’ – specifically Covid-19’s part in thrusting the need for technological change upon us – but when managed properly, it doesn’t have to be complicated.

With financial pressures intensifying dramatically in the wake of the global pandemic – and more and more organisations re-evaluating how they do business – Director of Product Management at Basware (and Source to Pay, eProcurement, eInvoicing, and AP Automation expert), Jason Vincelette and Tim Harford OBE: ‘The Undercover Economist’, Financial Times columnist, BBC broadcaster, and author of books including “How to Make the World Add Up” share their views and expertise on:

  • What businesses need to consider when implementing technological changes

  • … Especially when such changes are being thrust rapidly and robustly upon them

  • How “improvising as they go” can help them dictate such change and rewrite the financial function in the role of an unlikely hero of innovation

  • How the automation of financial processes and data will be crucial



On Episode 1 of Basware Bytes, join Basware’s Sami Peltonen and Pete Swabey, of the Economist Intelligence Unit, to explore the commercial impact of the ongoing pandemic and the steps organisations should consider taking to mitigate its long-term effects.

Tune in to find out what impact today’s ever-evolving climate is having on finance and procurement functions.

  • What are the major challenges and opportunities this represents?

  • How can finance functions position themselves to help their businesses survive, thrive, and lead the charge into the new-world of visible commerce?
