Case Study: S&P 500 Diversified Manufacturer


Non-respondent suppliers respond with Lavante SIM

"This study looks at how a Mid-Western S&P 500 Diversified Manufacturer uses Lavante SIM to automate its communications and data collection with a generally non-respondent supplier population.  As a result, the client has significantly reduced its exposure to risk as well as the cost to manage its supplier base.  This manufacturer also uses Lavante Recovery which has enabled the collection of open credits from its suppliers which in effect has paid for Lavante SIM. "It's a dream come true for AP and Purchasing," says the Senior Account Payable Manager."
