Nipendo doesn’t replace any of your existing systems. Rather, it extends your ability to automate and control procure-to-pay processes beyond the corporate firewall and into your supply chain.
Nipendo automates the entire process from procurement to payment, not just individual documents. Every information exchange between you and your trading partners encapsulates the entire context and history of the interaction. This means, for example, that when a supplier invoice is received, Nipendo is already aware of the entire history of the order, including the pricing and terms, whether the goods were received, when, and in what condition.
Based on this contextual understanding, Nipendo can automatically approve the invoice for payment without any manual touch, or hold it and prompt the supplier to correct any discrepancies. This intricate level of metadata attached to each document allows you o define very specific ways for handling each and every supplier interaction.
ACCELERATING THE SPEED OF BUSINESS WITH REAL-TIME VISIBILITY AND COMPLIANCE
Nipendo Supplier Cloud empowers suppliers through self-service reconciliation options, eliminating errors and manual processes and removing supply chain bottlenecks.
Any supplier interaction going through Nipendo is validated for data consistency and compliance with your business rules before it enters your ERP system. If validation fails, the supplier is alerted so the discrepancy can be immediately resolved. Buyers and suppliers can subscribe to real-time updates and dashboards that keep them informed on the status of the order at each step of the process and allow them to zero in on the exceptions.
P2P AUTOMATION ACROSS ALL SPEND ATEGORIES
Enabling integration for even the most complex spend categories, Nipendo’s Supplier Cloud allows you to establish efficient and error-free collaboration across your entire supplier base. Whether you are ordering stationary and paper clips or procuring electronic components to assemble your product, Nipendo can help you and your suppliers eliminate manual work, prevent errors, and remove process bottlenecks.
No matter how complex your processes get—dealing with orders and invoices with one line item or hundreds, partial shipments, advance shipping notes (ASN), returns—Nipendo is flexible enough to support your quest for automation.
WIN-WIN PROPOSITION FOR BUYERS AND UPPLIERS
The bottom line is a win-win proposition for you and your suppliers. You have greater transparency to delivery schedules and confidence you can meet your production timelines.
Suppliers can deliver more efficiently and cost-effectively because they know exactly what buyers expect.
In return, they get more timely payments and have access to early payment as well as other financing options (link to SCF/DD page).
“Nipendo is the real deal when it comes supporting both application capability in P2P,
such as e-invoicing and the connectivity or network layer itself.”
