We help businesses find areas for improvement in their management of physical supply chain processes – opportunities to streamline and automate their processes. By analysing the client’s receivables, stock holdings and other financing requirements, we also help businesses to save costs by unlocking savings that will either benefit the business or its supply chain trading partners.

As companies seek ways to optimise their supply chains, going digital brings about greater efficiencies.
A challenge commonly faced by clients in the F&B industry, particularly large restaurant chains, is the high volume of invoices from suppliers that need to be processed manually. Besides the substantial amount of time and resources spent on a low-value activity, discrepancies in the invoices can often result in late payments.
UOB can help such clients harness technology to manage their supply chains with greater efficiency.
For example, a restaurant chain could benefit from integrating EzyProcure to automate the procure-to-order process, with reconciliation services from order to payment; financing solutions which include early payment discounting and virtual payment solutions; and UOB’s Business Internet Banking Plus to make timely payments and gain better visibility of its cash flows through consolidated reports.
