Taulia Clients Airbus and Sasol Recognized at the 2019 Supply Chain Finance Awards
The Supply Chain Finance (SCF) Awards showcase companies’ achievements in demonstrating best practice and innovation in supplier finance. Announced on 28th November at a presentation ceremony at Amsterdam’s Beurs van Berlage, this year’s SCF Awards brought double success for Taulia’s clients, with Airbus and Sasol both recognized for their considerable achievements.
Airbus not only received the category award for Transport & Logistics, but also took the Gold Award for the category-winning entry that best demonstrates SCF in action. The company’s success was richly deserved, not least because this ambitious project saw Airbus adopt a supply chain finance program that could in time be scaled across the company’s entire supply chain.
Since implementing the program, Airbus has made billions of dollars available in early payments to thousands of suppliers. The success of the project was supported by proactive measures taken by Airbus to align major stakeholders on the project, as well as by Taulia’s highly streamlined supplier onboarding process.
Sasol, meanwhile, was named the winner in the Manufacturing & Industrial category. Seeking to replace manual discounting processes and provide additional liquidity for SME suppliers, the integrated chemicals and energy company had adopted a technology-enabled dynamic discounting program provided by Taulia. As a result, the company’s early payment discount program has been scaled from 150 suppliers to almost 3,500.
In addition to capturing remarkably more early payment discounts, the program has also brought significant efficiency gains. While a team of 12 had previously been needed to handle supplier phone calls, this has been reduced to a single employee, with the others redeployed to value-adding tasks.
“This was a great night for Taulia’s clients and I am delighted to congratulate Airbus and Sasol for their achievements,” said Michael Rieskamp, Managing Director of Europe, for Taulia. “Both projects demonstrated a clear commitment to best practice and innovation, and their success is well deserved.”
