At Basware, we believe in strategic partnering for better problem-solving. We have cultivated relationships with experts in the end-to-end procure-to-pay (P2P) and source-to-pay (S2P) digital transformation experience. It is our goal to not only provide best-in-class solutions for our customers, but to enable them to have the best experience and adoption possible with the assistance of experts in change management, solution implementation, program management, project governance, stakeholder management, risk assessment, and business transformation.
Basware’s partner strategy supports openness, transparency, and collaboration between our systems, our team, our customers, and our (or the customer’s existing) partners. We’ve embraced the industry shift to the multivendor strategic approach (or as we call it, coexisting) to ensure customers utilise “best of breed” solutions to deliver and build around their business goals.
“Application leaders that require functional capability across a variety of procurement processes should look to a mixed-vendor, best-of-breed strategy. This does not mean that every module in the S2P process needs a unique vendor. It does, however, dictate that when an organisation needs deep functional depth, it should select the vendor that provides the best solution. Using a single vendor for the majority of the process, with supporting specialist vendors to fill the gaps, is a very typical strategy.” - Micky Keck, Gartner Win Big by Starting With High-Value, Low-Risk Procurement Applications
“Well, the easy answer is that no suite is best-in-class across the board for all industries. […] So, while it might be tempting from an IT management perspective to have one vendor to deal with, it might not really solve the business problems that you are trying to solve. […] My advice is to evaluate each module on its own merits and then see how much of a single suite that is suitable for you to adopt.” – Magnus Bergfors, Spend Matters
Basware actively invests in partnerships across the world, with alignment in our marketing and presales teams. We work closely to onboard, train, engage in shadow programs, introduce our services teams, and help develop skills (where applicable). We recognise supporting and training our partners means a more efficient and successful implementation project, translating to higher user adoption for our customers.
