CEO Luke McKeever shared his first impressions after seven months at OB10 and talked about what customers could expect to see in the coming months. With a particular focus on improving supplier relations, expanding our work with buyers and increasing our market presence, OB10 is working towards becoming the most recommended global trading network by enabling customers to trade with confidence.
Alec Holmes, SVP Product Development, talked through how we’re reducing the most common support calls we receive. Top of the list for both OB10 and buyers is ‘when will my invoice be paid?’ By giving us data on the invoice status from their ERPs, buyers are cutting support call volumes by as much as 60% as suppliers can now see for themselves when they’re likely to receive payment.
Unilever Customer Case Study
In a candid presentation, Roland van den Bossche, shared Unilever's eventful e-Invoicing journey and the valuable lessons learnt, including:
- Create top-down governance, cross-functional targets and a cross-functional project team
- Take a co-operative approach with OB10, be aligned on targets and hold regular project meetings
- Work with your service provider to understand what good communications look like
Our supplier panel
A buyer user group wouldn’t be complete without the voice of the supplier. Susie West, CEO at sharedserviceslink.com, facilitated an interactive panel session with Office Team, SmurfitKappa and Premier Farnell, who all spoke frankly about being on the receiving end of an on-boarding campaign and the impact e-Invoicing has had on their businesses.
