Ariba® Invoice and Dynamic Discounting – Pay early, save more

Suppliers typically offer clients discounts for submitting invoices electronically and for making timely payments. But some organizations fail to tap in to many of these discounts—in part because they lack the processes, the insights, and the systems to take advantage of them. SAP’s Ariba Invoice and Dynamic Discounting offers organizations a potential path to capturing more supplier discount opportunities, to make paying bills a little less painful. The result? An accounts payable department that delivers new value to the organization.
