Capabilities

Supplier Activation

Supplier activation is an integral component of any discount management initiative. Basware offers a number of tools to support this step. You can choose which suppliers to invite to discount programs and you also have the option to activate one supplier at a time (as you might with a new supplier) or you can on-board them all at once. You can activate suppliers yourself through the service or our global activation team can help you develop your activation campaigns and connect with suppliers. Your suppliers just need to opt-in and then you’re ready to go. 

Automation & Analytics

Seeing the full picture is everything. Basware Analytics gives you a complete view of discount opportunities so you can capture all early payment discounts. When a supplier has enrolled in the early payment program, those invoices are flagged to ensure they are approved as quickly as possible. Additionally, separate workflows can be designated with the Basware AP Automation solution for invoices with early payment opportunities – all of this is designed to maximize your discount capture and make your early payment program a success. 

Dynamic Discounting

Dynamic discounting gives buyers more flexibility to choose  how and when to pay suppliers in exchange for a discount. The “dynamic” component refers to the option to capture discounts based on the timing of the payment. In general, the earlier the payment is made, the greater the discount.

Basware supports two different types of dynamic discounts:

  1. Automatic – You decide: You approve all invoices from participating suppliers for automatic early payment against discounts.  

  2. On-demand – Supplier decides: You let your supplier select the invoices for early payments and capture the discount on an invoice-by-invoice basis.

Source-to-pay Ecosystem

Basware’s solutions focus highly on open approach Source-to-Pay (S2P) ecosystems where integration is key. The “ecosystem approach” to S2P relies on a network of applications that drive your business solutions through a centralised hub and multiple technology vendors. Ecosystems make it easier for organizations to use a connected, integrated approach to their payments, dynamic discounting, and analytics needs (among others) while using the vendors that best fit their needs.
