50 to Know / 50 to Watch
The relationship between buyers and suppliers is broken.
Every quote, purchase order and invoice is still emailed repeatedly, updated manually and chased down daily, causing countless errors and discrepancies. Missed updates and errors have ripple effects across the business that can ultimately keep them from meeting customer commitments. In fact, more than 50% of purchase orders experience change that creates risk.
Every manufacturer and distributor works hard to meet their customers’ needs, but the manual processes in the first mile of the supply chain can cause them to miss. Misses waste time and money on expedite fees, excess labor, customer penalties, overpaying suppliers and unnecessary safety stock. Not to mention the chaos and stress of late deliveries, which kills productivity, drains morale, and leads to employee turnover.
SourceDay is a supply chain collaboration platform that drives supplier performance by bridging the gap between the ERP and the supplier network, addressing all of these common challenges. With SourceDay’s suite of collaborative products, entire teams can trace a single part from PO issuance through delivery, giving organizations unprecedented command and control over their businesses. SourceDay has helped thousands of businesses prevent surprises in their supply chains and, in doing so, enabled them to ship billions of parts on time, uncover new cost savings, safeguard revenue, optimize operations and protect sacred customer relationships.
A featured app on the all-new Coupa App Marketplace and one of the first Coupa Ventures portfolio companies—a $50 million fund to foster the next generation of Business Spend Management companies—SourceDay’s collaboration technology gives manufacturers and distributors a better way to manage their direct spend, including quotes, purchase orders, quality control and invoices.
SourceDay offers side-by-side RFQ comparisons in a collaborative and digital format that helps you get the best pricing, lead times, and delivery terms. You can send RFQs to multiple suppliers at once, then review submissions in an easy-to-read bid comparison chart. This makes it easy to cherry-pick the best quote and notify all suppliers of your decision.
Purchase Order Collaboration:
SourceDay’s simple interface allows your team to see the status of every line item – on every PO – at a glance. Additionally, it uses automated workflows to help users resolve purchase order changes as quickly as possible. Every PO update to lead-times, delivery dates, pricing, quantities, etc. makes it back into your ERP system in real time.
AP Automation :
SourceDay’s AP Automation matches final PO data with actual receipts to ensure a supplier’s invoice is correct. Once 3-way matching is complete, invoices are auto-vouchered in the ERP. That means you can have visibility to all current liabilities in near real-time, take advantage of early payment discounts, and your suppliers get paid faster.
Using SourceDay means you can now streamline your inspections by replacing spreadsheets with workflows that live in the cloud. Easily track incoming inspections of parts from every supplier organized in a single dashboard and instantly communicate with suppliers on rejected parts to simplify disposition.
SourceDay’s service team helps you integrate SourceDay into your ERP system in weeks versus the months it takes other solutions to be implemented.
