Case Study: Fortune 500 Semiconductor Manufacturer Expands Global Direct Sales Channel
How a Fortune 500 manufacturer expanded their global direct sales channels with an optimized payment and credit strategy.
Our client, a Fortune 500 manufacturer of electronic components, built a strategy to sell directly to more end customers (contract manufacturers) instead of through their traditional distribution channels.
How could they manage credit and payments to over 200,000 global, multi-currency buyers without adding any back office processes? For their customers, ordering on net terms was the “norm.” To convert buyers to direct online orders, they need to offer an intelligent, automated invoicing and credit program to optimize growth without adding back office process or risk.
Who were the primary client team members?
Treasury of Global Head of Accounts Receivable
Cash flow was not the issue (the company generates billions in annual profit). Rather, Treasury & A/R did not want to manage thousands of smaller, more frequent invoices and payments in house. The return on investment isn’t there and they’d prefer to have the predictability of being paid nightly for any new invoice that was generated.
Director of eCommerce & Head of Payments
Their concern was all about scaling and speed without adding back office processes to slow them down. Expanding to other countries, adding currencies, maintaining global invoicing standards — these were things they asked TreviPay to manage so they could focus on adding new customers and growing revenue.
