Jason Busch, Spend Matters Executive Editor and Contributor, recently did a video piece on the state of supplier financing and segmented the complexities of the current procurement payables and finance landscape.
In this video, Jason broke the analysis into five parts:
- Technology or application centric vendors
- Network centric vendors
- Providers and financial institutions focused on financing the broader supply chain
- Origination or syndication aspects of financing supply chain as tied to a transaction
- Disrupt the existing paradigm of discounting and finance
He discusses the five types of solution providers. Some may compete and some may coexist in a broader ecosystem that ties together procurement, treasury, accounts payable and the supply side of the financial equation.
