ESPOO, Finland, 7 February, 2018, Basware, the global leader in networked source-to-pay solutions, e-invoicing, and innovative financing services, today announced the availability of mobile discussions, a capability that allows people working in procurement and accounts payable to collaborate more efficiently on-the-go.
With mobile discussions, users can initiate discussions related to specific purchase requisitions, orders or invoices by using a mobile message sending and receiving functionality. The goal is to enhance productivity of individuals by ensuring that any open questions or issues can be handled in a timely manner – regardless of time and place. It makes document-related discussions simple to access for just about everyone involved, leading to faster, less cluttered communication that translates to more work, less talk.
“If business users need an accounts payable clerk’s advice or they want to agree how costs are shared between company functions, they usually start an email discussion or call the relevant stakeholders. Although these methods work, they take a lot of time, zap energy from people, and significantly hamper productivity and efficiency,” says Sami Peltonen, VP of Purchase to Pay Product Management, Basware.
In addition to streamlining the communication process, mobile discussions consolidate messages in a single hub and store information where all users can access it. Employees who need to reference the mobile discussions search for key terms and phrases to query relevant messages instead of digging through old email chains. This also eliminates disorganized internal communication, making it easy for users to find what they are looking for without exerting too much effort or spending too much time on the search.
“Mobile discussions take efficiency to a new level. Collaboration can happen any time and place, and people are easily notified when their input is required,” continues Peltonen.
