  • Ensuring prompt payment (within terms) to your suppliers for Large ticket POs

    Presenter: Kevin Wilson

    Date : 8/20/2015

    In our experience around 20% of supplier invoices are paid outside the negotiated terms agreed to in the Purchase Order. As a result, discounts offered by the suppliers are left on the table, unable to be claimed. Late payment to your suppliers can have other undesirable effects like a reduction in the terms period or a reduction in CR available. On high ticket POs or a large number of POs, 20% adds up pretty quickly. In this session we will show how SAP solutions can be leveraged to allow the releasing of payments of POs that have yet to be received without the risk associated with this action.
