How We Help Finance

Strengthen company value by helping buyers and suppliers collaborate better, improving compliance, and becoming paperless across your order-to-invoice processes.

You Can Do It with the World’s Business Commerce Network

You have to spin a lot of plates when you’re a steward for the company’s value and brand. Like keeping a lid on costs, ensuring compliance, and managing financial and supply risks. And as your supply chain grows and your business processes are outsourced, you need to collaborate with more and more partners to keep those plates from crashing to the ground.

That’s why you’re seeing enterprises become networked. According to McKinsey, networked enterprises are 50 percent more likely than their peers to have increased sales, enjoy higher profit margins, gain market share, and be a market leader. That’s because when you’re networked, you can …

  • eliminate the costs and risks associated with paper-based, redundant processes
  • use an electronic supplier network and automated solutions to extend your ERP and back-office processes onto a single, cloud-based platform
  • safely share information and insights with trading partners to buy smarter, sell faster, and manage cash more effectively
