Basware was evaluated against seven vendors overall. This IDC MarketScape study provides an assessment of the leading SaaS and cloud-enabled accounts payable software solutions and discusses what criteria are most important for companies to consider when selecting a system.

The IDC MarketSpace identified the Basware technology platform and ability to integrate to more than 250 different ERP systems as strengths contributing to its position in the Leaders Category. The IDC MarketScape notes that Basware has “invested a tremendous amount of resources toward innovation,” utilizing machine learning to automate non-PO invoices, offering an intelligent algorithm to identify invoices that are at risk of late payment and leveraging user data to create benchmarks around spend control, accounts payable automation, on-time payment and supplier rate of e-invoicing. This enables AP organizations to track their performance against their peers as they strive to become best-in-class.

“Basware leverages innovation in architecture, cloud strategy and functionality to deliver a powerful accounts payable process experience,” said Kevin Permenter, senior research analyst at IDC. “Additionally, Basware is consistently pushing their product platform forward leveraging powerful intelligent algorithms to capture both direct and indirect spend.”

The report says to consider Basware “when you are looking for an AP automation platform that is capable of handling complex, global organizations with multiple ERP systems and a variety of invoice types (not just indirect but direct, services invoices, logistics invoices, etc.).” Recognizing Basware’s significant presence across Europe, the IDC MarketScape also notes that the U.S. represents its “fastest-growing market outside of Europe.”

“There’s widespread recognition of the traction our platform is gaining globally. We’re honored to be recognized for our position of leadership in Accounts Payable,” said Sami Peltonen, Vice President of Purchase-to-Pay Product Management, Basware. “Our mission is to empower organizations with 100 percent spend visibility and that means capturing all invoices, including direct spend. As IDC acknowledges, we’re pairing that visibility with advances in machine learning and predictive analytics so users can make the most of their financial data.”
