Frequently Asked Questions About Oracle Dynamic Discounting

Oracle dynamic discounting solutions enable companies to automate invoice and discount management processes. Large organizations across the globe are leveraging dynamic discounting to achieve a business advantage.

For Oracle users, dynamic discounting and AP automation significantly improves cash flow, fosters more predictable payment schedules and maximizes discounts captured. This improves the return on Oracle investments, increases profitability and streamlines operational efficiency. 

With more organizations leveraging automated dynamic discounting solutions to complement their existing Oracle ERP systems, there are several questions to consider before determining an add-on platform.

How Does Oracle Dynamic Discounting Streamline My Organization’s AP Processes?

In the enterprise environment, buyers can capture discounts from suppliers in exchange for paying invoices early. With interest rates at a historic low, early payment discounts are popular among buyer organizations. Payment terms including 2%10 net30 can equate to a 36 percent APR if approved and settled within a 10-day window, adding up to real cost savings for companies.

With dynamic discounting, buyers can still take advantage of the early discounts offered by suppliers while extending the discount period beyond the traditional 10-day window. Automated Oracle dynamic discounting solutions give suppliers the option to discount approved receivables any time leading up to the invoice payment due date.

What Should I Look for in an Oracle Dynamic Discounting Solution?

What Benefits Should I Expect to Achieve with an Oracle Dynamic Discounting Solution?

With a dynamic discounting solution for your Oracle ERP system, you can expect to achieve several important business benefits, including:

  • Efficiency Gains: Surprisingly, many enterprises still rely on labor-intensive, manual data entry and communications for dynamic discounting processes. This is not only time consuming, but also increases processing costs and instances of error, which can jeopardize early payment term requirements. By automating dynamic discounting processes, companies can realize significant efficiency improvements across the financial supply chain.
  • Increased Visibility: With a Web-based AP automation and dynamic discounting tool, Oracle users have complete visibility into the status of discounts, invoices and dynamic payment terms. Buyers and sellers can even negotiate terms or communicate updates to one another directly through the portal, eliminating the need for unnecessary back-and-forth correspondence via email or phone.
