SUPPLY CHAIN FINANCE
Supply chain finance is a solution that links buyers and suppliers and combines the elements of technology, finance, and services to provide buyers with enhanced payment capabilities via electronic payment method while facilitating working capital management strategies that offer suppliers the opportunity to migrate to less costly payment methods while providing cost-effective financing opportunities and affective cash flow management.
Our Supply Chain Finance Solution
Innervation’s Supply Chain Finance solution provides flexible, alternative supplier financing delivering working capital improvements and unlocking cash and liquidity from the supply chain. Our solution enables companies to improve working capital, while also reducing the risk of supplier disruption due to illiquidity.
We offer an attractive alternative to expensive, traditional factoring programs by offering a lower discount and more flexible terms than small and diverse suppliers would achieve on their own.
For large corporate buyers, supply chain finance offers an opportunity to extend DPO (Days Payable Outstanding), improving buyer working capital, while simultaneously improving the DSO (Days Sales Outstanding) of strategically important suppliers. The Innervation platform manages the straightforward workflow, which is designed with the supplier in mind. Approved invoices are uploaded from the buyer’s ERP and suppliers elect which invoices they prefer to be paid early based on manual selection or auto pay. The platform will then calculate the payment required, based upon the agreed terms.
Supply chain finance will optimize cashflow for buyers, strengthen relationships with key suppliers and significantly reduce supply chain disruption risks.
