  • This is the big picture. The entire Basware Solution Suite which covers everything from sourcing through to payment. The combination of software and various strategic outsourcing options for our customers (services such as: SAAS, Basware Connectivity) provides a complete solution which dramatically improves the efficiency and effectiveness of processes relating to: sourcing, contract lifecycle management, purchase management, invoice processing, and performance management (KPI).Invoice Automation is the flagship but everything else complements it. Basware Connectivity is covered in greater detail in slides: 12-14
  • The earlier slide describes how we ’Automate’ with IA. Point out the data input ie: scan/capture and e-invoice and go into it in more detail with Supplier connectivity.This slide (and SC in general) is an alternative to keeping the scan and capture services in-house. SC for IA is a service which is less expensive, provides better results in terms of the scanned product and includes a dynamic action plan to convert paper invoices to e-invoices over the long term thus continuously driving down costs associated with the process while improving the quality of the invoices.
  • The message is: With SC, you will recieve 100% e-invoices from a single source. The quality will be managed and constantly improved upon.
  • Employees: all white collar employees will have a mobile phone and likely a home internet connectionProfessional Services: it is very common to purchase professional services of almost all kindsWhat you don’t know is how these different elements will be reflected in Contract Matching. Some like rent and rentals will almost definitely be schedule based contracts. Others like professional services could be either schedule based or budget based and utilities such as water, oil and electricity will probably be best handled with a budget based contract and a seasonal cost distribution template.

  • What the Analysts think Nigel Rayner / Gartner March 2009 - on Basware Connectivity “Typically, companies don‟t get more than 40% to 50% of their invoices electronically,” he says. “What Basware is doing is making it possible to move that up closer to 100%." Mickey North Rizza / AMR Research May 2009 – on Basware strategy “Basware‟s strategy of global marketing, partnerships, and product announcements is clearly positioning the company to make a larger impact on the supply management market.” Deborah (Debbie) Wilson / Gartner June 2009 (Critical Capabilities for Best-of-Breed E-Procurement Vendors) - on Product Viability “Basware's impressive entry into the e-procurement market and its good customer feedback thus far earn this solution an Excellent viability rating.” Benoit Lheureux and Paolo Malinverno / Gartner 20 Nov 2009 – on Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Integration Service Providers, Basware is listed as “Notable Vendors Not Rated for This Magic Quadrant but Worth Watching Closely” Duncan Jones / Forrester December 2009 – on Spendmatters blog on Basware “Buyers should insist on a commitment to interoperability as a key criterion when selecting a network provider.” Mickey North Rizza / AMR Research 10 Dec 2009 – on Basware success in procurement space “Basware has experienced 10.5% growth in sales since January 2009 and had a 70.4% improvement in operating profit in the same time frame. For 3Q09, the company‟s net sales were up 12.2% and operating profit was too, at 69.2%. Expect Basware to continue its strong penetration into the U.S. market. The company is poised for growth and tackling Ariba head on by targeting the CFO. Invoice automation and the procure-to-pay (P2P) business process are two key areas CFOs are still struggling to automate and lean out. The quarterly results of most companies were bleak throughout 2009, but procurement and settlement technology vendors Ariba, Basware, and Bottomline Technologies continued to post positive earnings. Because of its European demonstrated invoice management product, AMR Research expects Basware to continue its strong growth in the procurement and invoice automation markets.”
