Supply Chain Finance
Suppliers get their money faster, while you get to keep yours longer
The supply chain finance capabilities of SAP Ariba Payables let you keep cash on hand while keeping suppliers happy. It’s an elegant tool to extend your payment terms and free up working capital while giving you suppliers a cost-effective way to accelerate their cash flow. So they get their money when they need it, you keep yours as long as possible, and everybody wins. You can even let us do the work to get your suppliers on board.
How we did it: Financial supply chain
What you'll get
Access to more than 60 funding sources – and the ability to choose your preferred bank or alternative funder – to provide your supplier with cash at rates lower than they could likely secure on their own, backed by your commitment to satisfy payables on an agreed-upon date.
A seamless, early-payment network that both you and your supplier access via a simple user interface. It includes supply chain finance, dynamic discounting, and payment capabilities to help you and your supplier manage the entire payment process.
On the same platform you and your suppliers are using to exchange invoices and payments, the suppliers get a self-service tool for selling their receivables and accelerating cash flow simply, with a single click.
A flexible, scalable platform you can turn on or off, choosing which tools and which funders you want to work with—when and where you need them.
Assistance from SAP Ariba’s expert services team who help you define and execute your supply chain finance program.
For your supplier, a better way than traditional approaches to improve cash flow, on demand and at attractive rates, without incurring debt.
