A discussion on new technologies and solutions to make supply chain finance more effective, more successful and more inclusive.
Supply chain finance offers faster access to credit by enhancing working capital solutions for companies and diminishing the risks associated with supply chain disruptions. During the last decade, supply chain finance has experienced strong interest and growth among corporates financed by leading commercial banks. However, some of the current solutions are still based on siloed systems, with many manual steps and inefficiencies in supply chain finance processes.
This webinar co-hosted by BAFT and the Marco Polo Network will explore the current state of the market and highlight new technologies including blockchain, cloud solutions, APIs, and artificial intelligence all of which are being developed into trade finance solutions today.
During this open discussion moderated by GTR, we will explore the innovations, experiences, challenges, and opinions of these supply chain finance leaders. The panelists will also provide further details on developing networks and the various digital solutions being adopted for onboarding, data processing and payments, allowing access to supply chain finance more effectively and efficiently to large, medium and even small-sized companies.
