London, 17 July 2014 – Information about the impact of supply chain finance (SCF) on all stakeholders abounds, but the source of it is normally the "supply" side, or the banks, software vendors, and consulting firms that provide the SCF solutions and tools. Very little data is sourced directly from the "demand" side, or the companies that use those solutions in their own SCF strategies. If the supply side knew more about the demand side's SCF definitions, strategies, and resources, could they fine-tune their products to suit the needs of the market? And what should companies understand about gaps in their own plans and activities that can help them to take better advantage of the supply side's offerings?
This Aite Group Impact Report, based on February and March 2014 interviews with 104 corporate executives in Europe and Asia, ascertains what companies in Asia and Europe need from the supply side of SCF and what companies need to do to reap the benefits of market players' offerings.
