Payment Analytics

Bavelos Group’s payment analytics are the foundation for our services and a powerful way to maximize cash and savings through the precision management of days payable outstanding (DPO). Combining cutting edge predictive analytics and a powerful vendor attribute database, our analytics provide the means to scientifically assess working capital performance and improve future results.

“Micro-Targeted” Results via Trading Partner Insight

Optimizing working capital requires a deep understanding of the nuances of the pay cycle across thousands of transactions and vendors.  At the core of our analytics is an attribute database that tracks thousands of insights about each supplier and provides the means to precisely model the likelihood of individual suppliers to extend terms and offer discounts.  This enables us to “micro-target” the best terms to offer each  individual supplier, eliminating guesswork and maximizing cash and savings. 

Advantages of Micro-targeting

  • Incorporates 1000’s of data points
  • Prices each supplier offer scientifically
  • Precisely measures DPO opportunity
  • Maximizes total cash and savings

Scientific Methods Eliminate the Guesswork
