Combining Coupa’s Global Technology Platform for Business Spend Management and Tungsten Network’s Total AP solution provides a powerful tool to ensure straight-through-processing, helping mutual customers on their journey to world-class performance.
Tungsten validates, augments, and populates data to ensure truly electronic invoices drive higher matching rates across tax compliance, business validation and process requirements. Higher data quality and better first-time match rates mean more visibility and confidence for your suppliers and faster cycle times and lower cost per invoice for our customers.
Together, Coupa and Tungsten drive the world-class efficiencies you strive for in your organization.
Three Pillars Driving Total AP
(1) 100% Invoice Digitisation – Streamline your operation, remove unnecessary back-office processes and allow your front office to thrive. There’s no software or hardware to install – exchange invoice data with suppliers in any format, we’ll do the rest.
(2) Country Compliance – Government mandates are on the rise globally. Tungsten’s complainant network lets you future proof your business and stay on top of legal obligation, while reducing the potential for fraud and human error.
(3) Supplier Enablement – Any-to-any formatting lowers the bar of adoption, but allows for better penetration of your invoicing initiative. For Tungsten, our suppliers are our customers too, so we ensure they are engaged, educated, on-boarded and supported along the way.
Tungsten Network’s Total AP solution leverages the world’s largest, compliant electronic invoicing Network and adds a best-in-class digitisation solution for Paper and PDF invoices. The outcome is 100% digitisation of all invoices flows.
By digitizing AP, Tungsten Network customers drive costs from the business, find new efficiencies and deliver value to the broader organization often inconceivable in a manual, paper-based environment.
This is all with the aim of driving AP improvements and operations that will be the foundation for the business to achieve world class.
