Working Capital Analysis

You define your goals. We maximize the opportunity for success.

Most buying organizations implement supply chain finance to help optimize payment terms or reduce cost of goods sold. They define success by improvements in working capital, cash flow and gross margins. Despite this, most supply chain finance solutions simply provide a supplier financing tool. They do little to help the buying organization determine their working capital strategy or execute against that strategy. This is where SCiMap changes the game, by completing the promise of supply chain finance and enabling a complete working capital solution.

SCiMap is a cloud based application that provides a rigorous, data driven approach to design, execution and measurement of a supply chain finance program.  SCiMap analyzes your spend and provides the ideal strategy to optimize your payment terms or early payment discounts based on multiple benchmarks and individual supplier characteristics. It provides you with insights from our global database and detailed, up-to-date market intelligence. With SCiMap, a payment terms optimization strategy is created allowing you to make more informed decisions, generating more cash flow and discounts than any other solution in the market.

Strategy is step one, but your procurement team has to work with your suppliers and negotiate those payment terms in order for both teams to achieve objectives. SCiMap helps there by providing a detailed payment term projection for each supplier as well as the associated supplier messaging.  SCiMap’s supplier card will show you various supplier financial and operational characteristics and the economic impact of different scenarios on each supplier. This is where SCiMap gives your procurement team the competitive edge.

Once the program is in place, SCiMap will measure and track the results so you can see how you’re tracking  your cash flow goals down to the regional, commodity and procurement manager level. SCiMap takes you all the way from strategy and execution to measurement and accountability.

We have the world’s largest payment term database.

SCiMap uses the largest benchmark payment term database of more than $1.5 trillion in spend data from companies in various industries and countries, SCiMap helps you negotiate optimized payment terms with your suppliers.  SCiMap analyzes spend and compares different scenarios for optimizing your working capital and reducing costs and financial risk in your supply chain. It is much easier to generate incremental cash flow quickly when you have a detailed working capital analysis of your company-wide purchases with granular visibility identifying untapped opportunities for optimizing working capital. SCiMap provides you with a distinct competitive advantage by giving you on-demand information on where and how to negotiate payment terms based on your objectives, supplier relationships and negotiating culture. This results in accurate, actionable information for your business with which to make strategic decisions.
