earn over $3 million in early
pay savings annually

best returns on cash?

payment yields better than a
20% annualized rate of return

A sampling of our recent work:
Cash strategy for a major
A major communications company was seeking to clarify its options for improving working capital to reduce their overall debt. We assisted Treasury in aligning the organization behind a supply chain finance strategy, defining their unique solution requirements, and facilitating an informed bank vendor selection.
Savings enablement for a
A nationwide distributor sought to expand savings from early pay discounts without adding new skills to their finance and sourcing teams. We deployed a team to administer and grow their Early Pay Program, tapping expertise in web marketing, call center outreach, payment analytics, terms pricing and project management.
Cash-flow management for a
A global manufacturer needed the means to smooth-out cash flow given wide fluctuations of their quarter-to-quarter demand. We helped define an innovative strategy that combines an Early Pay Program with Supply Chain Finance to selectively deploy cash based on quarterly cash-flow needs.
Procurement strategy for a leading
US Financial Institution
The CPO of a top tier US financial services firm was looking for ways to find savings beyond pure negotiated pricing. We benchmarked their payment history and built a business case for a terms optimization strategy that extended net terms and captured new savings via an Early Pay Discount Program.
