SAN DIEGO – October 14, 2021 – Kyriba announced the launch of new Kyriba Working Capital Solutions as part of its bold effort to close the reported $3.4 trillion trade financing gap and help corporate buyers support all suppliers, especially at risk SME suppliers. The Company further invested in its Working Capital Solutions team and is rapidly growing its marketplace of global funding partners to improve access to liquidity amid a historic disruption to international trade.
“The pandemic has created unprecedented risk in global supply chains. Suppliers are being crushed financially as they wait the additional weeks and months it now takes to get products to market,” said Jean-Luc Robert, Chairman and CEO of Kyriba. “Our solutions help mobilise liquidity, injecting cash into supply chains so global suppliers receive the financial lifeline they need to survive.”
Kyriba has launched new capabilities to help buyers accelerate access to liquidity and mitigate supply chain risk with greater flexibility, certainty, and corporate responsibility.
- Flexibility: Kyriba helps deploy liquidity from the most efficient sources at different stages of the trading relationship with supply chain finance, dynamic discounting, and a newly announced purchase order financing. The Company is also launching a receivables financing platform to further help CFOs enhance and modernise their enterprise liquidity programmes.
- Certainty: The Company’s integrated cash forecasting solution increases the precision of cash and working capital projections, enabling finance and treasury teams to optimise their use of internal and external cash pools to unlock additional liquidity for suppliers across the globe.
- Sustainability: Kyriba’s Working Capital Solutions offer greater access to affordable capital for all suppliers and offer the capacity to supplement CSR and ESG programmes, enabling buyers to more easily work with businesses that are sustainability minded.
“Kyriba is removing barriers to adopting working capital solutions that improve the access to liquidity for SMEs,” said Abhijit Prasad, SVP Working Capital Finance at Kyriba. “We haveinvested in our team, delivered product innovation, and added new global funding partners to deliver even greater capacity to serve the growing demand for working capital solutions anywhere in the world.”
Kyriba’s Working Capital Solutions were recently awarded by Global Finance Magazine as the 2021 global winner of Best Supplier Enablement for its automated and transparent supplier onboarding operations. In the past 12 months, Kyriba facilitated more than $7 billion in early payments across 1.5 million invoices to over 50,000 suppliers in 50 countries. In 2021, the Company expects financing to exceed $10 billion – a more than 40% increase over 2020.
