Bringing Supply Chains Into The Digital Age

Supply chains are only as strong as their weakest link. Thus, data – the kind that helps buyers make sure their suppliers have the parts they need, or the kind that helps payments get to where they need to go, quickly – is paramount. Mastercard and OpenText have joined forces to streamline supply chain financing and activity, improving document flow between companies and unlocking trade credit.
