Financial resilience has never felt more out of reach. Inflation hit a new four-decade high in February and cost pressures and shortages continue to mount.

How can you navigate inflation and cost pressure and still achieve financial resilience and cost control? The answer lies with automation and digitization. Procurement teams must embrace modern technology and utilize its many benefits. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, collaboration and automation significantly reduce process costs. This will help offset inflationary increases.

1. Automate Vendor Invoices and Payments

In 2022, prioritize automation, digitization and process efficiency. There are a number of financial activities that are ripe for automation, such as PO matching, invoice reconciliation, budget checks, accounting entries and payment approvals. Automating these tasks will save considerable time and money, while increasing cash management and spend visibility for your team. Improved cash management and clearer spend visibility will help offset the increasing pressure of inflation.

Procurement and AP automation eliminates mistakes. Most modern procurement and accounts payable systems include functionality like automated invoice, purchase order and budget checks. These tools eliminate costly issues associated with overpayments, duplicate invoices and payment errors, and ensure you only pay for what you buy and receive.

 

2. Simplify Business Purchasing

You need to spend money to make money. Although, thanks to inflation, you likely spend significantly more than before. However, the key is ensuring your team purchases from the right suppliers, takes advantage of pre-negotiated rates, and operates within the confines of the broader procurement and spend management strategy.

Simplifying business buying benefits for both the organization and your team – your employees get what they need to run the business, quickly and easily, and the business maintains cost control.

To be successful, aim to mimic the way we shop and buy in our personal lives, which is almost completely digital and mobile. Ease of use increases adoption of your procurement systems which in return helps reduce costs and maverick spend.

 

3. Boost Internal and External Collaboration

Supply chains for both mid-market companies and enterprises are increasingly complex. Collaboration is more critical now than ever before. This is especially true in the midst of shortages and inflation, where a seemingly small issue with a second or third-tier supplier can have a major impact on the bottom line.

You need to know what’s happening, who it’s happening to and why, where, when and how it’s happening as well. Without active internal and external collaboration and communication, your organization faces unnecessary risks.

Additionally, inflation makes it crucial to collaborate with suppliers. They’re experiencing inflation too. Work with them to find a solution that provides value to both parties.
