Global Deployment Suitability in Action: Toshiba and Basware

If you’re a global business or have aspirations to be, you need a purchase-to-pay (P2P) solution that is designed to solve for your business challenges on a global scale. Read more to see how Toshiba benefited from Basware’s global deployment suitability.

Making your way through the maze of country-specific invoice formats, multiple tax requirements, and constantly changing e-invoicing regulations is overwhelming – especially in a manual environment. Imagine if you could ensure compliance and streamline your operations worldwide through purchase-to-pay automation. A P2P solution’s ability to deliver on that promise is what the analyst community calls “global deployment suitability.” 

Global Deployment Suitability: The Break Down

So, what exactly does global deployment suitability mean in purchase to pay? Let’s break it down.

Global: adjective. Pertaining to the whole world.
Deployment: noun. Bringing resources into effective action.

Suitability: noun. The quality of being right or appropriate for a particular situation or purpose. 

When we combine these words into a singular phrase, we see that they describe the desired state for a purchase-to-play global rollout. When achieved, this ends up looking like:

  • Easy solution implementation in all countries 

  • Compliance in all countries and regions of operation, and

  • Consistent support and guidance regardless of customers’ locations and languages. 

Toshiba’s Global Need

Toshiba TEC Germany Imaging Systems GmbH is a part of Toshiba, a global corporation doing business worldwide. Before implementing Basware Purchase to Pay, they struggled with the high cost of printing and slow process of stamping and sending invoices by snail mail. They also realised they were missing a vital component in improving their customer relationships — e-invoicing

Since Basware is a global company recognised for its global deployment suitability, Toshiba decided to team up with us to solve their invoicing concerns. They were able to achieve their cost savings goals, customer relationship objectives, and much more.
