Espoo, Finland, April 16, 2019 – Basware (Nasdaq: BAS1V), the global leader in networked source-to-pay solutions, e-invoicing and innovative financing services, has further enhanced its industry-leading Analytics solution and can now provide actionable insights to manage KPIs and workloads in AP departments and financial shared service centers. With the updated version company introduces two new dashboards to the Basware Analytics solutions: AP Performance and AP Productivity.
“It is all about efficiency and productivity. You can’t achieve it unless you automate AP department and shared service center processes and know in detail where bottlenecks are and how invoices are being handled. With the help of Basware Analytics, our customers have full process overview and they can drill-down to details and get actionable insights to improve their processes,” said Kevin Kamau, Product Manager, Basware.
Basware has a long history of understanding the challenges of the largest multi-national AP organsations. With these new deliverables, it strengthens the solution to help companies with high volumes and big staff to measure and optimise their process. For Basware, this is possible as it always captures 100% of all transactions of all its customers.
“Basware Analytics enables monitoring of every step in the process. These insights can be used to improve efficiency and service level and to decrease invoice processing costs. It also provides comprehensive and flexible reporting - reports and KPI’s for different customers and departments can be pulled out in no time,” continued Kamau.
How new dashboards work?
AP Performance dashboard provides an intra-organisational benchmark for process durations within the customer’s organisation. For organisations, that have dozens or hundreds of suppliers & daughter organisations, the process set up in most cases is the same; thus the benchmarking process durations is essential to provide achievable targets for the outliers.
AP Productivity dashboard provides invoice backlog in detail. It enables better track of invoice flow by providing visibility where an invoice is pending action. It also allows prioritisation of AP based on a prediction of risk of late payment and identifies availability for early payment discounts.
“Our integrated analytics delivers insights for both shared service centers and customer organisations to improve spend, optimise P2P process, and capture savings from early payment discounts to bottom line,“ concluded Kamau.
