Taulia Debuts Enhanced Discounting

TauliaLogo.jpgThis post is part of our live coverage of FinovateEurope 2015.

Taulia showed how its Taulia Enhanced Discounting (TED) enables organizations to offer financing for suppliers: 

Taulia Enhanced Discounting (TED) aims to revolutionize the funding of supply chain finance. TED combines the benefits of traditional dynamic discounting - when corporations offer an early payment to a supplier in exchange for a small discount - with a flexible supplier financing programme, which allows organizations to choose to use their own cash or the capital of a third-party financial institution, to capture early payment discounts. 

With TED, organizations can offer their suppliers uninterrupted, affordable financing regardless of their own cash positions, operating obligations, or financial forecasts. Taulia is so confident of the value that TED delivers, that it guarantees its customers savings of £1M a year.
