Working Capital Optimization

Working Capital Optimization is a strategic objective for CFOs as they fight to generate bottom line value and generate free cash flow. Kyriba offers CFOs two compelling benefits: the ability to improve working capital, as well as the opportunity to increase net income.

Kyriba Delivers Multiple Early Payment Programs

Kyriba offers both dynamic discounting and supply chain finance programs to improve financial performance.

  • Dynamic discounting programs reduce cost of goods sold through the direct discounts earned from suppliers, increasing net income while simultaneously improving the return on excess cash liquidity.
  • Supply Chain Finance, also referred to as reverse factoring, facilitates term extension on payables, preserving cash for longer on the balance sheet and increasing free cash flow.

Kyriba’s Working Capital solutions allow suppliers to be paid early in exchange for a discount or financing fee at a lower cost of funding than they can achieve on their own.

Reduce Risk in the Supply Chain

With many organizations under pressure to extend DPO by paying suppliers later, Kyriba’s Working Capital solutions allow suppliers to be paid early in exchange for a discount or financing fee at a lower cost of funding than they can achieve on their own. Early payment programs supported by Kyriba’s cloud platform allow an organization’s suppliers to improve their own working capital to increase production efficiencies and drive growth.

What Is Important in a Supply Chain Finance Solution?

To deliver successful global supplier financing programs, there are five key requirements:

  • Expert Teams
    Supply chain finance solutions are as much a service as a platform. The vendor should help design the right program to meet specific KPIs, analyze spend and build a business case.
  • Multi-Funder Platform
    Payables financing programs require diversification across lenders to deliver the required liquidity to the global supply chain and to support regional specialization.
  • Program Flexibility
    The solution must support both dynamic discounting and supply chain finance programs, with the flexibility to modify business rules on the fly to meet the KPIs of an organization.
  • Complete Workflow
    A comprehensive program must also include cash visibility, forecasting, payments and pre-built ERP integration.
  • Supplier Onboarding
    To maximize supplier participation, the supplier portal must be easy to understand, in the language of their choice, and feature intuitive reporting dashboards.
