Crafting an efficient Order-to-Cash process to boost cashflow

In Manufacturing, a strong understanding of inventory and supply is critical – so it makes sense that Manufacturing organizations also need insight into the business drivers, buying habits and profitability of their customer base. Despite the critical importance of working capital in such an asset-intensive sector, manufacturers often lack visibility across billing and credit management which can significantly impact cashflow.

Adoption of AI also tends to be low, particularly in the back office. Sidetrade’s AI-driven O2C platform can help Manufacturing companies to free up working capital for vital investment by accelerating cash collection, cutting down on disputes and reducing bad debt.
