– Basware, the global leader in networked purchase-to-pay (P2P) solutions, e-invoicing and innovative financing services, predicts that the growing emphasis on analytics will drive internal collaboration across Procurement, Finance and Treasury functions, as well as externally through B2B networks. In addition, the industry will focus on the customer experience and incorporating Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities into solutions to help organizations derive more value from their data.
“Organizations must be agile to thrive in today’s fast-paced environment, ” said Vesa Tykkyläinen, CEO of Basware. “This requires visibility across the entire purchase-to-pay process so they can take advantage of opportunities, address problems and make informed business decisions. At the same time, the need for companies to strengthen supplier engagement and to connect with their trading partners easily, transparently and in real time will only grow, furthering their focus on delivering a cloud-based, consumer-style buying experience over business networks.”
