We have seen a significant increase in the number of solutions working to increase the level of visibility and automation in managing corporate payments.

As the economic environment continues to recover, companies of all sizes continue to be faced with how to most effectively manage their buyer/supplier relationships. Management of working capital and payment terms is a daily set of activities that is gaining visibility from solution providers globally.
