2018 White Paper
How technology is changing the way businesses in Australia and New Zealand are paying each other
Since the Global Financial Crisis Corporates have been strategically extending payment terms to Vendors to optimise their working capital positions. But these practices are now attracting scrutiny from State and Federal governments in Australia and New Zealand. There is a better way to drive cost savings while implementing an ethical supply chain initiative.
The white paper covers:
  • The current market landscape and strategic opportunity for Corporates
  • How new technology is driving competitive advantage for early adopters; and
  • How disruptive supply chain initiatives impact you and your Vendors
