Webinar: Leveraging Payments as a Working Capital Solution
Online | 30 June 2020 | 12pm EST / 5pm BST
Fast virtual payments that shorten the DPO and accelerate the cash conversion cycle are critical for suppliers in an environment where liquidity is tight. Yet customers seeking greater working capital positions might seek to lengthen DPOs, creating a crunch for suppliers. In the current crisis, many companies have found that the DPO is lengthening due to processing inefficiencies, and lack of automation, where AP cannot physically execute payments due to lockdowns and remote working away from offices. In this session, we explore tools to create improved cash conversion cycles by utilising B2B payment solutions that create a win-win for enterprise buyers and sellers as they seek to navigate liquidity through the crisis.
