Fibre Procurement

Flexible Fibre/Wood Procurement

When companies have a variety of contracts to manage, ensuring payments are accurate and timely is a constant challenge. Further complicating the payment process are the myriad of rate rules and pay instructions, such as advances, holdbacks and adjustments, which are an integral part of the financial process in forestry.  Managing all of this payment information along with the necessary vendor information and then integrating all of this data with the enterprise financial system is a time-consuming but mission-critical component of any solid business application. Business Resource Manager simplifies the procurement process by streamlining contract creation and vendor payment.
