Basware Solutions for the Consumer Goods Industry

Accounts Payable Automation solutions that make it all happen for companies delivering Consumer Products

The consumer goods industry has traditionally thought of innovation in terms of product development, manufacturing, or consumer interaction. Unfortunately, this meant financial innovation and the development of these processes never got much attention.

With Basware, now it all just happens. Our AP Automation solutions allow producers of consumer products to automate more tasks than other solution providers, creating a touchless experience with less human intervention and more efficient processes.

Our artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning functionality is available at every stage in the process, so you can optimise processes and redirect limited resources to more strategic activities.

The benefits of AP Automation for the Consumer Goods sector

  • Keep up with changing regulations by relying on our local expertise in countless global markets.

  • Automate non-PO invoices using custom spend plans, AI coding, and better approval workflow.

  • Seamlessly integrate all your ERPs and other financial systems, no matter how many you use.

  • Develop a robust AP strategy with experts who know how to get a greater and faster ROI with an AP-first approach.
