Benefits of automating supplier payments

The blockchain technology will securitise matched invoices into tokenised IOUs. That means suppliers will know when their invoice is matched and when they are going to get paid, the tokens will facilitate improved invoice discounting, as banks can tell what percentage of their invoices are creditworthy.

Current transfer inefficiencies particularly in respect of international transfers alongside high banking charges and forex costs cause multiple hidden fees and add significant additional costs to the consumer.

UK SMEs pay nearly $5.8 billion in hidden bank fees for crossborder payments.
