Dynamic Discount Management

Dynamic Discount Management (DDM) solutions allow businesses to uncover hidden savings opportunities in their supply chains by turning their Accounts Payable (AP) into a cash-generating asset and relevant short-term investment option.

DDM is rapidly gaining acceptance among AP and Treasury departments at large corporate organizations due to the opportunity to save millions (up to 0.5% of their annual spend) by offering to pay suppliers early if they discount their invoices.  Executives like the short-term investment value that can be achieved, often 50x more return than standard money market rates, by paying invoices early.

Our Dynamic Discounting solution will provide you with all the processes and tools you will need for a successful introduction and roll-out of early payments. This includes a user-friendly vendor portal that provides online communication and helpful self-services for quick and easy supplier adoption and supplier on-boarding.
You may be missing out on valuable discounts due to your company’s late invoice approvals. If so, consider inviting your suppliers to adopt dynamic payment terms through a self-service vendor portal. 

Here is how it’s done:

  1. Define dynamic payment terms within the familiar ERP/Spend Management environment.
  2. A straightforward analysis helps you identify the most promising candidates.
  3. Invite suppliers to opt in.

Upon supplier acceptance, our system will ensure that payments are handled properly.  Meanwhile, extensive reporting capabilities on your discount capture help you stay in full control.

According to a recent Aberdeen Group survey, roughly 15% of your AP clerk’s time is consumed by supplier inquiries, with two of the most common types being payment and invoice status requests. The Vendor Portal immediately eliminates such requests because it allows suppliers to log on and check the status on their own. As a result, AP clerks save valuable time and suppliers get 24/7, real-time visibility into their account.

Other Capabilities

  • Allows suppliers to securely update and maintain their account information (vendor  master data)
  • Enables dynamic discounting and early payments
  • Will immediately be recognized as your vendor portal, branded with your logo and color scheme
  • On-demand solution that immediately and seamlessly connects to your ERP.

Supplier Enablement – Objectives

The Dynamic Discount Management (DDM) solution is designed to for quick and efficient enrollment of your suppliers so that the buying organization can sooner realize the rewards of on-demand management of buyer-supplier relationships.

The key objectives are threefold:

(1)   To eliminate as much manual effort as possible to ensure that the enrollment process will not be disruptive to your AP department;

(2)   To facilitate the enrollment of ALL your vendors.  Self services benefit every one of your vendors, and, therefore, should not be limited to only a percentage of suppliers.  Although we highly recommend you enable all vendors, the DDM enrollment process supports phases, including a suggested initial pilot phase.

(3)   To ensure security – the Enrollment process is designed to be secure and provide the buyer with added levels of security, uniquely identifying the vendor as your supplier.
