Intelligent Payment Discounts
The insights and smart outcomes from Oracle AI Apps for ERP - Supplier Categorization provide smart input to the discount negotiation process. Oracle AI Apps for ERP - Intelligent Payment Discounts uses this input to automatically and intelligently generate vendor-specific discount offers in exchange for early payment of outstanding payables based on in-the-moment supplier profile and risk data. The outcome of each offer (accepted or rejected) is then used by machine learning algorithms to optimize the discounting program for a company's unique supplier portfolio and procurement practices. Traditional discounting approaches lack the flexibility to constantly adjust and optimize recommended discount offers. The AI and data-driven discounts created by the Intelligent Payment Discounts feature of Oracle AI Apps for ERP use the enhanced vendor information from Oracle AI Apps for ERP - Supplier Categorization to capture savings missed by rigid, pre-negotiated contract terms and generate investment returns on free cash.
