Technology Leaders Combine Their Best-of-breed Services to Increase the Value of Suppliers Across Enterprise Environments

Lavante, Inc. the leading provider of SaaS solutions for Supplier Information Management (SIM) along with Taulia, Inc., the financial supply chain company, today announced a new partnership that combines their industry-leading solutions to create an unparalleled offering to optimize the value of supplier relationships across enterprise businesses.

By combining the vast business intelligence of the Lavante Supplier Network, built on the Lavante Connect platform that collects, validates and actively manages supplier information across millions of supplier connections, with Taulia's industry-leading supplier financing and e-invoicing solutions, organizations will maximize supplier participation of their supply chain financing program and realize a subsequent increase in their bottom line through discount capture and/or working capital optimization.

Beyond higher supplier adoption and profits, buying organizations utilizing the Lavante/Taulia offering will enjoy new visibility into supplier health score-carding and campaign management to help make more informed decisions about their supply chain partners. Suppliers will enjoy powerful new tools to help monitor their standing at the client level and to negotiate accounts receivable strategies that maximize their cash flow while making them a better business partner. 

"With this move, Taulia is leveraging the industry's premier supplier data quality solution to power its sophisticated supply chain financing product offering," states Henry Ijams, lead analyst of PayStream Advisors. "The combined solution offers a best case scenario for clients and suppliers."

"In Lavante, we see a firm that shares our passion for putting the supplier first, and in doing this, providing the highest possible value to clients," states Markus Ament, Taulia Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer. "We could not have selected a better partner to help take our Financial Supply Chain Network to the next level. This will drive a magnitude increase in ROI for clients that leverage the Lavante platform."

"Companies leveraging our joint offering will benefit from the every/every principle," states Lavante co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Joe Flynn. "With Lavante, turn every supplier into an active partner and with Taulia, turn every invoice into a revenue opportunity. This is the most comprehensive way to strengthen supplier relationships while adding millions of dollars to the bottom line."
