BNP Paribas announces the launch of a new Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) offering for its corporate clients worldwide. Using innovative technology, this global platform presents both supply chain financing and cash management capabilities. It offers extensible solutions and is fully integrated with payments and reporting. Its multi-banking, multi-currency and multi-lingual capabilities are some of the unique features to be found in this new platform.
Designed in response to increased client demand, this state-of-the-art platform will notably provide greater flexibility for integration with clients' third party systems, significantly reducing implementation time and costs. Additionally, the platform will provide highly customisable solutions and an efficient, swift flow of supply chain information to the clients.
Pierre Veyres, Worldwide Head of Global Transaction Banking, BNP Paribas said, “In creating this new offering, BNP Paribas' three main focal points are: bringing added value solutions to our clients' franchise, developing flow business and reinforcing our leadership positions. Hence we focus on providing open and converged product solutions as opposed to the traditional ‘silo' systems offered by the banking industry. As a major step in this direction, our new robust Supply Chain Solutions platform enables customised financial solutions for the trade, supply chain and cash management needs of our clients.”
