APEX Analytix released the next generation of its FirstStrike Supplier Portal. It automates the supplier registration process, providing 24x7x365 self-service to suppliers, dynamically presents discounts, and offers an e-invoicing and purchase order flip capability. The portal integrates with APEX Analytix FirstStrike procure-to-pay controls and analytics technology to leverage its complex algorithms for market cash discount programs and to identify and achieve savings via electronic invoicing, and performing mass communications via voice, text and email. It also enhances fraud detection and prevention when incorporated with FirstStrike Fraud Detect software. The portal electronically registers key supplier information and keeps it current; facilitates FATCA compliance, dynamically creates required tax forms, and validates addresses, ID numbers and banking information. The portal may also be used independently, ensuring accurate, complete and up-to-date information in the vendor master; as well as driving value for accounts payable with dynamic discounting and cost reduction capabilities.
