Strategic agreement to introduce Infor Nexus network to the bank’s clients to digitize the financial supply chain

 

BEIJING, CHINA  Media OutReach  2 March 2020 – Standard
Chartered
, a
leading international banking group, and Infor, a global leader in
business cloud software specialised by industry, today announced a strategic
agreement to introduce the Infor Nexus network to the bank’s clients. By digitizing
the financial supply chain, businesses can minimize supply chain delays and
friction, while suppliers can benefit from improved access to capital.

 

Scoring
high on ability to execute and completeness of vision, Infor Nexus has been positioned
in the leaders’ quadrant of Gartner’s
“Magic Quadrant for Multienterprise Supply Chain Business Networks” report
. “Collecting data and sensing signals in real time, and then
coordinating, executing and resolving issues quickly, will allow companies to
operate their supply chains more effectively,” Gartner said in the report. The Infor Nexus
network transforms the traditionally manual process of data matching across
multiple commercial documents including purchase orders, invoices and transport
documents. This helps to speed up trade financing cycles, allowing suppliers to
access capital faster and at more critical points in the transaction cycle, and
as a result ensure on-time delivery of goods.

“As our client’s trusted banking partner, our
goal is to support them in their digitalization journey through expediting
their payables acceptance and facilitating export proceeds, and as a result
improve their working capital cycles. We are excited to have this introduction
agreement in place with Infor, whose platform offering not only fits well with
our emerging markets footprint, which generates significant trade documents
flows, but also shares a similar commitment in supporting the development of
sustainable, intelligent supply chains,” said Michael Sugirin, global head of open
account trade product management at Standard Chartered.

 

Through the strategic agreement,
Standard Chartered will refer clients to Infor and its Infor Nexus network,
based on specific needs, enabling them to benefit from automated matching and
digitized documentation and processes delivered on Infor’s network of 65,000
businesses around the world. In addition to delivering broader financial
services to clients, the Infor Nexus network provides global on-boarding
and ongoing service and support to suppliers without requiring the involvement
of the anchor buyer. The agreement also enables Standard Chartered to expand
client relationships through digital transformation solutions that address
sourcing and payables inefficiencies while enabling innovation and growth.

and sees US$1 trillion in trade managed on the platform.

“Invoice approvals in a
traditional nonautomated environment often take weeks to complete, putting a
squeeze on suppliers and bringing contention to the buyer-supplier
relationship,” said Cas Brentjens, vice president, Sales, Infor Nexus Asia
Pacific. “Slow invoice matching delays the trade financing cycle, preventing
suppliers from obtaining capital they need to deliver quality and compliant
goods on time.”
